My husband needs to apply for indefinite leave toremain. However we cannot apply until 28days before his current visa expires which is Feb 2014. He has passed the speaking and listening which would allow him to obtain the visa at present but because we have to wait till Feb and we know and the law will change in October whereby he must have the life in the uk test and some oher things, we are really concerned. He cannot read and write and has failed the test four times.....what can we do? Is there a way around this? He will have been in the Uk for five years in July. My husband is Turkish.
He has taken the life in the uk test and failed it four times. He has a speaking and listening level of Entry level 1. Reading and writing is lower than this. In October he will have to have the life in the uk test and pass the leel 1 test to staythis. this is four level above his speaking and listening level at present.
how can we apply early when the homeoffice states that you cannot apply more than 28 days before your visa expires? He has completed the esol certificate. We have this.
