Greetings,

I`m on first Leave to Enter Spouse Visa. Visa approval on 31 Jan 2017 to 31 Oct 2019.

Entered UK on the 15 Feb 2017, BRP issued from 14 Mar 2017 to 31 Oct 2019.

Is 18 July 2019 the earliest I can apply for premium service?

15 Feb 2017 to 15 Feb 2019 = 24 months + 6 months bring it to 30 months is 15 Aug 2019

Less 28 Days = 18 July 2019?

Thank you in advance.

Default ILR After 5 Years - Earliest Application Date

Hi All,

It's almost time for us to apply for the ILR and I just had a quick question as there doesn't seem to be a consensus on the answer.

My understanding is that the ILR application can be made 28 days prior to the 5 year anniversary of when the person entered the UK.

However, is this also allowed even if the current spouse visa is valid for several months?

i.e. 5 year anniversary comes up on 10th August, visa expires 2nd October 2019. Can we apply on 12th July?
In the application form it would only show 4 years 11 months in terms of how long the applicant has been in the UK so just wanted some clarity.

Would appreciate your thoughts

Many thanks

Hello Joppa and nyclon,
I know you are probably well tired of this question, but I am beginning to panic, so i'm coming to you.

is the window to apply for the ILR only inside those 28 days?
I am afraid i am AFTER the 28 days.

Visa received:May 22, 2014 (valid from may 12)
Arrived in Scotland: June 3, 2014
Married July 24, 2014
My husband and i had our 5 year anniversary, yesterday

I was working with the date on my biometric residence permit, believing that as long as we got the ILR application in and approved before that date (november), we were fine.

Now, on rechecking, i find everything saying 28 days BEFORE ENTRY visa- not even marriage visa- which would mean...?

I am unclear about if we are past the deadline, or if the 28 days is just the EARLIEST you can apply?

Thank you so much, as always.

Default 5 years Spouse Visa ends

HI all, I need some advice on the steps that I need to take to apply for my indefinite leave visa. My Spouse Visa ends this 1st December and it will officially be the end of my 5 years. So what should I do now? It seems now all application is done online and what is the application form I need to fill? So I also need to take the "Life in Uk" Test?

So for example, if you arrived in UK on your settlement visa on 17th June 2015, you can apply on 17th December 2017 (30-month anniversary), minus 28 days which will be 19th November 2017. So that's the first day you can book your premium service centre appointment for (for same-day service) or send off your application by post.

If you switched your leave within UK from fiancÚ(e) visa or any other non-visit visa (such as Tier 4 student, Tier 5 YMS or Tier 2 General) to leave to remain as spouse/partner on form FLR(M), your leave will be for exactly 30 months so you can renew up to 28 days before its expiry. This is also the case for ILR (settlement) application after being in UK for 5 years.

If you wish to renew or extend a non-settlement visa such as Tier 4 or Tier 2, there is no stipulation about how many days in advance you can apply, but your next leave will be valid from the date of issue, even if you had some days left on your previous visa or leave. Something to bear in mind if you can qualify for ILR after a stipulated period of residence, such as Tier 2 General. They usually allow up to 3 months short of prescribed period but naturally you don't want to cut it too finely.

If you renew your visa before the expiry date, the unexpired days of your previous visa up to 28 days are usually added to the new leave. Just bear in mind when you come to apply for settlement (indefinite leave to remain), as you will be able to apply some time before the expiry of your visa, i.e. 30 months on your visa, minus up to 28 days. Don't work it from the expiry date.
