Can I leave the CoS column blank and submit later when applying the tier 2 visa

We're waiting for Edward to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear HM Passport Office,

I am currently applying for the tier 2 visa by transferring from tier 4 visa. My CoS will be issued after 6th of April when my current visa will expires. I found I can leave the CoS column blank and on the next page select "my sponsor will certify my maintance as shown on my CoS ". Therefore, can i continue with my application and submit the CoS later?

I don't what consequence will be brought. So I am not moving on. Can anyone answer me what will happen if i select no on"do you have a CoS number"

Thank you very much
Yours faithfully,

FOI, HM Passport Office
