So I've recently been given a date to collect my BRP on the 25th August. Only problem is, the plan is that I've already got plans in Europe from the 20th August. Ideally, I will arrive in the UK on the 18th August and then leave on the 20th to Europe. I will only be back earliest, 7 September but obviously then, my 10 day window to collect my BRP has expired.
I do have a student visa that is still valid and was thinking if I could enter the UK on the 18th with that visa and only use my Tier 5 visa when I'm arriving in September but I don't know if that would work.
Anyone experienced the same situation or have any advice on the problem? It's quite important that I (hopefully) don't have to make changes to plans in Europe.
Even though, I'm guessing, things are looking pretty grim, thanks in advance!
