Currently I have got Tier-1 General visa.I will apply for ILR in Dec 2015.
Date of Visa Granted under Tier-1 General :11 Jan 2011
Entry in UK :7 FEB 2011 (After Almost 25 Days of Visa Granted)
OUT OF UK :29/AUG/2011 13/SEP/2011 14 Days
OUT OF UK : 5/JUN/2012 24/JUN/2012 20 Days
OUT OF UK : 13/AUG/2014 18/AUG/2014 7 DAYS
Question 1: Do i need to add First 25 days after obtaining visa?
Question 2: If i start my absence from UK (14+20+7) = 41
As per my understanding i can be out of country upto (180-41)=139 days in 5 years stay to be remain eligible for ILR. Please correct if i am wrong?
Question 3: For how many days i can stay out of country consecutively if i have 139 days left ?
Your prompt response is highly appreciated.
