10 years Route Vs PBS Route

Post by Bil_Ent » Fri Sep 06, 2019 4:13 pm

Hi Everyone
i am bit confused about 180 days if you going for ILR via long residency route(10 years)
the new rule which changed in Jan,2018 is applicable on ILR via PBS or on both 10 years and PBS?
if it's also for long route like any 180 of any 12 months that will apply for last 5 years or 10 years on long route?
i am going to apply for ILR(10 years) in October and i was absent in 2014-2015 in 12 months period more then 180 days(but not consecutive 180) as its not in last 5 years if i concider from day of application so that will affect?
reply will really be helpfull
