Customer Question

Hi.
My ancestry visa expires in June. We have just applied for my husband to migrate to Australia which can take anywhere from 3-6 months to be approved. We have been together for 8 years, married for 5 1/2 years and have a 3 1/2 year old child who has dual citizenship.
Would I get into trouble or possibly not be allowed back into the UK in the future if I overstayed my visa by 3 months?

Hello,

I will do my best to help you with this.

If you overstay, you could get a 10 year ban when you do then leave. You could appeal that but it is not an ideal position to be in obviously.
