Hi there,

I'm on a Work Permit in the UK and the WP was issued on 2nd Jan 2008 but I didn't enter the UK until mid February 2008. As I'm now eligible (or nearing) for ILR, when should I submit my application?

Many thanks in advance.

You qualify 5 years from the date of entry. You can apply 28 days before this.

Thanks Victoria. So that means:

1) I should apply 28 days before mid February 2013 (around mid-January 2013)
2) that I need to apply for an extension to cover the period between 2nd January 2013 and mid-February?

Please advise.

Many thanks in advance.

Oh I see, a five year permit.

No, you can just apply in the last few days of your visa.

Sorry to be pedantic but just so that I don't mess this up; my WP was issued on 2nd January 2008. According to your last reply, I should be OK if I prepared and submitted by application around 2nd December 2012.

Thanks.

Thanks
