Hi,
I am a British passport holder.My wife and daughter is on ILR. My daughter's (6years old) ILR BRP is expiring in September 2018.My wife went to India for second delivery along with my daughter in July 2017 .She is continuing her school in India.Now ,I am planning to bring them back to UK only in February 2019(before two years).My questions are

Q1.Is it possible to renew the ILR BRP from India or she has to be physically present in UK to renew the BRP.

Q2.How long before the ILR BRP can be renewed before the expiry date.

Thanks.

If she has been away for a long time, HO might expect evidence of residence.

Kids ILR - Biometric card expiring

Post by ak01 » Fri Jun 01, 2018 1:55 pm

Hi,
My daughter’s ILR BRP is expiring on 14/10/2018.I am planning to bring her back on 30/09/2018 .Just ~15 days before the BRP expiry date as we have to attend a marriage function on 28/09/2018.I will be applying for the BRP once she comes back to UK.
I have to find a school place for my daughter only after coming back to uk.

Q1.Is it going to be an issue with immigration UK /airlines in India since she will be travelling only two weeks before the BRP expiry.

Q2.In BRP renewal form they are asking for letter from school confirming attendance. Since she was in India for an year, she will not be having any proof of her schooling in UK.Is it going to be an issue.

this shouldn't be an issue for 'Air India' in respect of a BRP card for entry into the UK as this is what immigration at the UK border is concerned in, especially as it is still valid. UKVI wouldn't or shouldn't have an issue with it either as you are under the 2 year absence period for the ILR to become invalid or lapse. Still be prepared to answer any questions they may have on their side as per their protocol.

Q2.In BRP renewal form they are asking for letter from school confirming attendance. Since she was in India for an year, she will not be having any proof of her schooling in UK.Is it going to be an issue.

you may need to write a covering letter explaining this, and any circumstances that may have caused her to stay there for 1 year in India, however I believe you should enroll her as soon as possible and explain in the covering letter she has been enrolled and that she will be completing her education here as well as being resident here.

This will at least demonstrate you as parents of the child have intentions of being resident/settling here and the period of stay in India was due to unforseen circumstances that have been resolved, after all that is what ILR is granted for.
These are my 'views' and 'opinions'.
If in doubt always seek professional advice, or at least do a search for the relevant information. :P

If i make any mistakes, You are more than welcome to correct me.
