I am thinking about applying for a PR Card and have two specific question. My entitlement would be based on a 5 year period that took place in the past. Now, in my final year I had a 5 month absence from the UK:
1. Do I need to prove residence during this period (i.e. show relevant tenancy agreement, bank statements, utility bills, etc) - as I was outside the UK I stopped renting for that period
2. Does it matter that my absence was extended to 7 months if the final 2 months already fall in year 6? BTW- do I need to provide any documentation for year 6 - i,e, when I came back?
Appreciate your help here
