My Tier 1 visa is valid until 27th of Dec and I was not able to complete the documents till tonight. Was thinking about posting on monday but there is no special delivery available on 24th to deliver it on 27th. Also I am not sure if it should be with UKBA before 27th. Just wondering if I can myself drive to Durham and deliver the application myslef?

Your leave will expire at 11:59pm on 27th December so as long as it arrives on or before 27th then you'll be ok. Post Offices are open, I think, on 24th - are they not offering any delivery services that would get it there for 27th at all?

An alternative way to look at it is, the "date of application" is the date of the postmark, so if you post it on 24th (take it to the Post Office!) then your application has been made on 24th.

PO Boxes are based in sorting offices - they're not actual UKBA offices. You can call Royal Mail and ask for the physical address. As to whether they'll take it, I'm not sure - I don't see why not but you could call them to find out, 08457 740 740.

As you say, the "date of application" is the date of postmark, so why are you also saying it must *arrive* by 27th?

As long as it is in the post by recorded or special delivery on 27th you are fine.

You can't hand deliver it.

Why not? There is an address given for courier delivery (Millburngate Hse) and one can be one's own courier (but of course it wouldn't make sense in this case).

The deemed date of an application is either the date of posting or, if delivery is by courier, the date of receipt by UKBA..

Because he's not a courier. They won't accept it and there is no need to do this anyway as he can post it on 27th.

of course there is no need for courier delivery in this case but that is not the issue.

Courier deliveries are acceptable, hence the street address given on the application form. Do you know if UKBA have a special definition of "courier"?

What they do on the 24th isn't relevant. As we have said, the date it's posted is what matters.

I know that the UKBA don't accept hand delivered applications, yes.

Ok guys so to be on the safe side, I am thinking about going to Durham now and check there if post office is offering any special delivery or not to deliver it on 27th. If not I'll use CitySprint couriers to collect it from a Durham address (Travelodge may be) and deliver it on the same day i.e 24th Dec. And if they are not able to do so due to , I can may be take it to the post office and just post it with whatever service they are offering. I won't deliver it by hand coz I need some proof for my records that I have posted the application and that it's been received by UKBA.

Just to be sure, is the following address where the courier the application:


UK Border Agency
Leave to Remain - SET(O)
Millburngate House
Durham
DH97 1PA
