Following the posts on this forum, I am not so clear this particular rule. If possible, could you please help me with my case?
I am under work permit from Mar 05 so I am eligible to apply for IRL on Feb 09. Have not got the appointment yet but I will keep on checking. From Mar 05 till now, I am working for the same company and I have 5 P60 (05 -> 09) and other required documents.
The only problem that I have is that the number of days outside UK of mine is 231 days. Out of that, only 6 days are business and I can get letter from my employer to prove that but that still leave me with 224 days
So my questions are:
1. The way I count the days include the day I leave UK and they day I come back to UK. For example if I went to France on 05/05/05 and coming back on 10/05/05, the total of days absent for this period is 6. Is this correct or should I only put it as 4 (excluding the begin and end of the trip)? If I exclude all the days in and out, it still leave me with 192 days
2. During this period, I went back to my country for a few times (around 30 days in total) for my father funeral and 1 time (30 days) for my marriage. Can these periods be viewed as a compasionate ground and is there any rule on this?
3. Based on my information and your experience, do you think I will get the ILR? If not, is there any advice you can give me?
Thank you all very much,
Is any one who asked questions in this thread got ILR. My situation is similar where I am out of UK for around 200 days and most of these are Annual leaves.
1. How to prove that we are on annual leave ? [Some one already asked the question in this thread but I couldn't see answer.
