ILR & Absences of more than 180 days

Post by tm231 » Sat May 13, 2017 11:34 am

I will qualify for ILR by Nov. 2017. But I am a bit concerned, my absence will affect my continuous leave as it is in excess of 180 days within a calendar year. All my absences are business related and I have supporting documents to prove them. I have checked the policy guidance and it states any absences of more than 180 days is not permitted irrespective of the reasons. Pls zimba88 and other gurus help.

My Questions
1. Can I apply for ILR as I have supporting documents to prove the criticality of my travels to my business ?
2. Can my dependent qualify for ILR, in the event I did not qualify due to my absence ?

It is no more than 180 per 12 month cycle (not calendar months).

1. You can try, no guarantee you will be granted ILR.

2. No, your PBS Dependent only qualifies if YOU qualify.

Please start your own topic with your circumstances in the ILR sub forum. It is rude to just tag your brief question onto another members topic.
