Good day. Thank you for helpful response. I have some follow up questions. Kindly respond to them please. I have read the UK immigration rules. The link is provided below for easy reference. I have referred to some of the rules in my follow up questions.
1. no, this will not be a ground for refusing her next visa
This is a follow up question. My daughter is currently on a 3 years RCOS valid till April 2018. So after exiting UK within the 6 month validity of the current general visitor visa, is it better to apply for the 2 year multiple entry visit visa (expiring before daughter’s visa expires) or for the 5 year multiple entry visit visa (expiring after my daughter’s visa expires.
2) yes, but the final decision to let her enter the UK lies with the UK immigration officer at the UK border. Having a visa does not guarantee entry to the UK.
This is a follow up question. My daughter’s husband is frequently disrupting her day to day life and her efforts to progress in her career. My daughter has to perform to expectations at work and also pass a demanding professional examination by November 2015. She has to take a paper by end of May, another by end June or mid July and 3 papers in the 1st week of November 2015.
My wife would visit our daughter only for the purpose of helping her progress with her career (managing the home while our daughter prepares for taking professional exams, supporting our daughter in future in case of pregnancy and after delivery etc) We have strong social and economic ties in India and in the Middle East requiring my wife’s physical presence outside UK and can demonstrate these with documents.
Do you have any specific advice for us on anything else we need to do now to ensure that the immigration officer at the airport clears my wife’s entry when she returns to UK on another valid multiple entry visit visa.
3) not necessary to do anything but she may explain this fact in her next visa application.
This is a follow up question.
In the visa application, my wife represented that she wanted to visit the UK for tourism and would stay with her Nephew in Croydon, Surrey. After my wife received her visit Visa on 3rd March 2015, my daughter applied for her visa in mid March (as soon as she collected all the required documents) and subsequently received her visa in the last week of March 2015. My wife has visited her nephew in Croydon, Surrey after reaching London but is currently staying with my daughter in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
My wife applied for a 2 month visit visa but has received a 6 month visa and intends to exit the UK in August 2015 well before 3rd September (the expiry date of the 6 month visit visa). She produced to the immigration officer at LHR a return ticket for 28th June 2015.
When she applies for a long term visit visa (2 years or 5 years) after exiting the UK, will the aforementioned facts be construed as “ breach” under the UK Immigration Rules V 3.9 (a) “overstaying”, or (c) “deception in relation to an application” or under V 3.6 “False information in relation to an application”
4) I would advise against her applying for an extension unless there are serious compelling reasons to do so e.g. Medical condition which does not allow her to travel. applying for an extension will complicate her case and may affect her next visa.
I am willing to wait for UKSolicitorJA till end of day on Tuesday 12th May 2015.
I have not received responses to my follow up questions.
If UKSolicitorJA is not available, please find someone else to respond.

Hi, Thank you for your answers to my follow up questions.
Most of my questions have been answered.
Could you kindly answer the following questions.
My wife has visited UK once for 6 days, for tourism in 2006 on a 6 months multiple entry visit visa.
She currently holds a multiple entry visit visa issued on 3rd March 2015. Visa type is mentioned as C-Visit. It is valid until 3rd September 2015
If she exits the UK and returns while the current visa is still valid, can she do so without applying for another visit visa?
Option to travel on current multiple entry visa.
In the visa application my wife mentioned that she intended to stay in the UK for 1 to 2 months. She entered UK on 3rd April 2015. So the 2 months will run out on 2nd June 2015. My wife currently holds a return ticket for 28th June 2015.
Leave UK on 15th August and do not return in 2015. Apply for the next visa in 2016.
Leave UK on 28th June, return after 15th July and leave UK by 31st August.
Do not return again in 2015. Apply for the next visa in 2016.
Leave UK by 2nd June, return after end of June and leave UK by 31st August.
Will the immigration officer at the UK airport refuse entry to my wife if she selects option 2 or 3.
Will there be any issue with the fresh visa application in 2016 if my wife selects options 1 or 2 because under these options she will be staying in UK beyond the 2 month period after the entry on 3rd April 2015.
My travel to UK
I am working in Muscat, Oman in a Government organization. I will be applying for a 6 months multiple entry visa to visit my daughter. I have visited UK once in 2006 for tourism for 6 days. I was issued a 6 month multiple entry visa.
I plan to visit my daughter twice in 2015.
The first visit is likely to be in June, July or August for less than 10 days while my wife is still there. When I leave, my wife will leave with me.
The second visit will be for about 45 days from end September to the 1st week of November. I will travel alone on this trip.
Do you think there will be any issues either with the issue of my multiple entry visa or with my entry at the airport immigration on my 2nd visit in September 2015.
Thank you very much for your quick and clear responses.
