Yes you can apply since you have entered within 90 days and you visa is expiring after 28 days. There is complete misunderstanding among our friends that your 5 years start from visa issue date. If your visa expiry had say 3 months, you were not eligible to apply as in this case your 5 years clock w...

I fully agree with forum friends. PEO refers applications to higher authorities even for a small doubt. Postal application in general stands more chances of success as senior staff sitting side by side can use discretionary powers to waive off some conditions. So if postal application has been rejec...

As per rules there is no requirement of any minimum funds. As suggested above I strongly suggest that you should manage some savings to show around 1000 sterling pounds. Legally you are allowed to accept financial help from friends/relatives.
