Is 27 Feb to 30 Mar the only time that you have been out of the UK during the 5 years?

What visa are you on?

Hello Tom,


27 February-30 March 2008 out of the country for a paid leave, then went for Maternity Leave from 7 January- 22 August 2009 & also spent outside The United Kingdom.


I am on a Work Permit Visa since June 2006.
