Hello

Thank you for your enquiry.

If you have a continuous period of 10 years lawful residence in the UK and the 6 months gap is outside this 10 years then you shouldn't be afraid.

hi,
as i said that 6 months gap is outside my 10 years but on the form i have to write all the gaps,from i first enter the uk included that 6 months gap.i am just worried if they don't check carefully my 10 years start after this gap.should i write a cover letter or normally they will find out theirself?
Expert:  Frantz I replied 22 days ago.

The best thing to do is to write a covering letter and also explain why you were away for 6 months.
