Should we apply for PBS Dependent Visa Extension Or ILR

Post by sreeram.akella » Fri Jun 08, 2018 6:46 pm

Hi,

Can someone please suggest if we have to apply for PBS Dependent Visa Extension Or ILR. My Wife's PBS Dependent visa is due to expire on the 24 August 2018. I became a British Citizen in May 2017. Here are the key dates,

Tier 1 General Dependent Visa - 17 Sep 2013
Date Entered UK - 25 Sep 2013
Current PBS Dependent Visa Renewal Date - 24 Aug 2016
Current PBS Dependent Visa Expiry Date - 24 Aug 2018

If I calculate from the date she first entered she will complete 4 years 11 months. And if I calculate from the first visa date, it will be 4 years, 11 months, 1week (23 days short of 5 years).

With these dates and the fact that I am already a British citizen, Can we apply for ILR or should we apply for a visa extension?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you,
Ram.

Does she satisfy the 5-year completion rule? If we consider Visa Start to End dates, its 23 days short of 5 years.

Thanks,
Ram.

Should be fine to apply 28 days before the date of visa issue.
