Current visa start date - which one is it?

Post by ladyp » Tue Jun 18, 2019 5:43 pm

Hi, this might be trivial but I just wanted to check. I am switching to a Tier 2 and it asks what my current visa is and what is the start date. The exact wording is:

"What is the start date of your current visa or leave to remain?"

I had an entry clearance stamp on my passport which was valid from 24/04/17.
My original BRP has date of issue 10/04/17 (I lost this card last year and hence cannot provide it.)
My current BRP has date of issue 01/03/2018 (this is still the same visa, different BRP card).

Which one do you think is the correct date? I initally put 24/04/2017 but now am not sure.

Hi CR001, thanks for the response. When you say the initial visa do you mean the BRP card or the vignette on the passport?

Initial visa granted. Your brp replacement was only a replacement, not a change in visa valid to and from dates.
