Yes.Just to confirm, so we can apply for ILR even if our visa is expiring few days before completion of 5 yr period as long as its in 28 days window ?
BRP date is fine.Also regarding 1st visa start dat - the visa stamp she got on her passport shows start date of 06/09/2016 whilst on BRP which she collected when she came here shows start date of 01/09/2016. I reckon its the BRP date which counts ?
