Thanks for your question.
I am afraid tha the bad news is that if your visa will expire before you travel to teh UK, it is highly likely that you will be refused entry. You will need to make an application for a new visa before you travel.
I hope this answers yoru question. If so, kindly click accept.
If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.
Sorry, the answer did not help me as I have been told from the department of natrualisation and residency that after my visa expires I have at least 10 days to either leave the country or extend my visa.
The question was based on my visitors visa running out on 19th November and I am flying back to UK on 25th November, will I need to extend even though there are only 6 days inbetween.
Yes you will need to extend. If you overstay without obtaining an extension, it may affect your ability to enter the UK at another time.
