Thank you for your response.Manka10 wrote:Dude, HO gives extension from the day they make a decision and that is the only set rule (no matter after how many days they take a decision, which will most probably be after 28 days you apply going by current timelines), rest all depends on CW's discretion so dont make any assumptions, also what difference does it make if its a day here or there ?
what exactly are you trying to get at ?

One may apply for extension any time he wishes, but it is recommended that one applies for extension no earlier than 28 days before the expiry of current leave.
Please do note that this is not in your hands, irrespective of when you apply.archna7 wrote:Please do remember, I am trying to get extension from current leave to remain expires rather than from the date of application

Manka10 wrote:get a PEO appointment 1 day before your LTR expiry & forget all the math, sit like an owl every midnight, spend thousands paying a solicitor for appointment, who cares right ? its all for getting an appointment, asking if its better to apply on a particular day or the next day is absurd when even the most straight forward PEO applications may take months to clear
if you have to worry about falling short by a day or 2 for the 5 year ILR requirement then worry more about something else that might go wrong big time
even if you apply *exactly* 28 days before your LTR expiry, you may not get the extension from the date of expiry of current LTR so save all the trouble and anxiety
Thank you chetanojha for explained and helpful response.chetanojha wrote:I have seen some instances where candidate have requested CW to grant him visa/extension from the last day of the expiry of the current visa. And CW has done so provided he is explained why you are asking for it. But again that depends on the case worker and shoudn't be taken for granted. Going through solicitors has its own pros-cons. They have fixed slots on particular days in which they can accommodate you and apply for your extension. But that will cost money. If going in-person you may not need the necessary dates but you can request case worker to allow you visa extension from later date onwards.
Its really a tradeoff between dates and money. That is something you need to decide and members in this forum can only advice.
