Thanks for reply.Does this mean no 180 absence cap for visas issued before 11th Jan 2018 or we should start counting all absences from 11th Jan 2018 until the ILR application date which should not exceed 180 days?CR001 wrote: ↑Thu Jan 11, 2018 2:20 pmuk-tier-1-general-visas/big-changes-to- ... 46576.html
Correct, that is my understanding.Does this mean no 180 absence cap for visas issued before 11th Jan 2018
I have found this document with a new cut-off date for calculating 180 days absence for PBS Dependent ILR application.
(d) not have been absent from the UK for more than 180 days during any 12 month period in the continuous period, except that:
(1) any absence from the UK for the purpose of assisting with a national or international humanitarian or environmental crisis overseas shall not count towards the 180 days, if the applicant provides evidence that this was the purpose of the absence(s), and
(2) any absence from the UK during periods of leave granted under the Rules in place before 11 January 2018 shall not count towards the 180 days.
