How long do I have to stay in the UK on a Tier 2 (general)

This answer was rated:

How long do I have to stay in the UK on a Tier 2 (general) before applying for indefinite leave to remain? I understand that generally it is 5 years, but someone once mentioned that you can apply a month early (i.e. 4 years and 11 months); is this true?
Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to RATE my answer OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE.

That is true in the sense that you are able to apply for indefinite leave to remain 28 days prior to your 5 years in the uk on a tier 2 visa. Please see following link :

I hope this answers your question if so kindly rate my answer positively so I can get credited for my time.

Is it possible to get a same-day appointment during this 28 days?
