Legitimate job offers generally won't ask you to pay any money up front for any reason, and they won't be involved in any unprofessional schemes where you have to refund money or involve your own money in any way at all.

of 9-13 days And it will be very easy to get you a visa and work permit

and after that you can now to the embassy here in UK and get the permanent
residency if you like,The visa and work permit processing cost,obtaining
