This answer was rated:

I have a five year work permit visa issued 11/11/06 and expires 11/11/11. I entered UK on 19/11/06 Under the 28 days qualifying rule for ILR what is the earliest date I can apply in person at the home office.

 

Hi,


Thanks for your question.


Assuming you otherwise meet the eligibility criteria and the end of your 5 year period is 19/11/2011 the earliest date you could apply for ILR would be 22nd November 2011, which is obviously 28 days before 19/11/2011. I always advise my clients to date/send their application on the first day they are eligible to apply by registered post.

 

Date your application and covering letter 19/11/2011 and send it on that day and you will be fine.

Sorry!


Yes, that's correct.
