Hello,

What is your nationality?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Bahrain Arabian gulf I have a 5 year uk visa with a 90 days multiple entry

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
You are normally allowed 6 months entry into the UK every time you enter. Please check whether it is indeed 90 days or 6 months.

The general rule is that you should not spend more than 6 months in every 12 months period in the UK as a visitor.

If the immigration officer suspects that you are not a genuine visitor but are using your visit visa to reside in the UK than they have the power to refuse you entry and revoke your visa.

Hope this helps
