5 days short fall in ILR

Post by mahir » Fri Mar 29, 2013 12:23 am

hi
i applied for tier 1 extension on 22-02-2013 and HO received my application on 26-02-2013. my current leave expires on 23-03-2013 as per UKBA guidelines sent application at least a month before expiry of visa but visa officer issue visa on 18-03-2013 till 18-03-2015 BRP due to which i short fall 5 days for my ILR. i wrote to case worker but she replied this Thank you for your letter dated the 25 March.

The published Tier 1 guidance advises applicants that they must submit their application at least a month before their existing leave expires, but also warns applicants that the UK Border Agency grant leave from the date of decision. As a result you can have had no expectation that any leave granted as a result of this application would be added to the expiry of your extant leave.

We hope you find this satisfactory.

i am confused as if i applied for ILR they will refused my application due to 5 days short mistake done by visa officer. need help what to do? do i have to appeal against decision then need address to send appeal or do i have to apply ILR before last week of expiring my visa on 18-03-2015 so that when they make decision will cover 5 days. please help

But chances are high to get the extension from current expiry date.
If you apply in 28days, it is for sure you will get extension from current expiry date.

Hello guys ,

Just to let you know that i have discussed my case with three different solicitors and they all said same thing that i will be eligible for ILR within 28 days period which means i will have only two days (26th Mar 2015 and 27th Mar 2015) windows to apply ILR.

Thanks At least i can qualify for ILR and i don't need to go for another extension.

Thx,
koolyaar

Vegeta,

The simplest answer of your query is that you can apply for extension at any time as long as you are meeting their points requirement.

But also bear in mind if you apply prior to 28 days of visa your current expiry date then your new visa will start from the date when they make decision not from the expiry date of your current visa.

Trust this helps.

Tier1(General) 2nd extension

Post by karunyam » Fri Jun 28, 2013 4:40 pm

Hi

I got Tier1 visa for 3 years on 6th November 2008.
But i entered into the country very late after 14 months(on 9th January 2010).

Got my 1st extension which is valid till 6th November 2013.

Now i am planning to go for an extension. Please suggest whether it is okay to take PEO sometime around mid of August 2013?.

It means 3 months early(as i will be eligible for ILR after 14 months).

Many Thanks
Karunya.

Hi Sairam,

Did you provide any document to show why you need early extension ??

I want to go for early extension as well (by 11 months), It is my second extension. I want this so that my new born child get the new extension date, other wise I have to apply again after 11 months for my kid.

My kid need to travel to India this January 2014, so it would save me 1134 GBP if I did my extension first, then for my son.

Thanks

Re: Early Extensions: Tightening the noose

Post by kuldeep » Mon Sep 29, 2014 10:11 pm

Hi Guys,
I will be applying for Indefinite Leave To Remain come October 2015. My concern which i wish to clarify is that i came to the UK on the 89th Day from issuance of my Tier 1 General Migrant Visa. Do I need to extend my Visa early or can i straight apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain.

Although i have read on guidance notes for the above mentioned category but there is some contradicting information on other forums. Could you please advice what would be the best course of action for me. Also having read on internet that Tier1 extensions will no longer be available on from April 2015 which means if I have to apply for an extensions it would be before that time.

please see the dates below for the above calculation.
Visa issue date : 9 Nov 2010
Date of Entry : 5 Feb 2011
Current Visa Expires on : 8 Nov 2015


Please suggest
