I was on a student visa for 6 years. 2 years PSW and currently on a Tier 2 general.
No, 250 days is in excess to the 540 days of absences allowed.
These absences were in 2007/2008/2009. Basically, I left whenever I had the chance to help out in caring for her.
I did not spend more than 6 months outside the UK in any 12 months period.
How to I produce evidence proving that we were close? Can you give me examples?
Just wondering, if this has been my grandmother, not my grand aunt, would things have been different?
On a different note, what about preparing and attending my brothers wedding? Is that time to be disregarded from my overall absences?
Why not? Am I expected to remain in the country while he gets married?
