My UKvisa expires on 15th of August, but I can't get my passport back till the beginning of September(It is in my home country). And I have a visa from 28th of August for Germany. Can I leave UK for Germany at the beginning of September, when I get my passport back? I know that UK border will mark me if I overstay my visa, but it's for only approximately 15 days. Also, I would like to know if Germany will let me enter if I overstayed my visa in UK.
Province/Country relating to question : UK/Germnay
I called UK border agency, they told me I could extend my UK visa when I get my passport back. But I don't really want to get the prolonged visa.
Thank you for your question. Can you explain how your passport can be out of the country when you are here? If your visa expires when you are here then as out say you will be classified as an overstayer but provided it is for less than 28 days and you leave of your own choice and cost it will not stop you from reentering in the future. I see no reason why germany would refuse your entry if you have a valid visa here. You can apply to extend you visa before it expires and although the application can be rejected because you have not produced your passport , you will be here legally pending the outcome of your application
I sent the passport via a parcel back since my parents need it. So I could apply by submitting other materials to extend my UK visa before 15th of August, and withdraw it when I want to leave UK?

That is correct provided your visa is capable of being extended then as long as you have applied for an extension your leave automatically continues until the application is rejected.
