thanks for answering my last question that was very helpful!

Resolved Question:

thanks for answering my last question that was very helpful! my girlfriends visa is a 'settlement to join parents' visa which she got in 2004 that had a expiry date of 2007 which was when her passport ran out! but but she got a extension put on her passport which made the passport run out in march 2010! she didnt realise the visa had a expiry date she thought it would expire when the passport extension did, does this mean she has been here since 2007 illegally? or does it mean she just needs to get the border agency to change the date on her visa to 2010 to match her passport! were bit confused because she travelled home to thailand in december2007 and returned in march 2008 and the immigration officer at airport said nothing about her visa date saying expired october2007?

From the information you have provided above, it would seem she would have to contact the UK Border Agency to extend the period of the Visa so it expires the same date as the passport.

I hope this helps. If so, kindly click accept.
