Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am an Indian national . I have secured a job that has sponsored me a Tier 2 genral visa . I have a COS no. with me . While i am filling out the visa application form(tier 2 general upto 3 years) . There is a quastion "How long do you intend to stay in the UK?" . My contract is for 12 months . However I intent to extend the contract or find another job while i am there and plan to certainly stay more than 12 months . Also , If i am given a 12 months visa , I believe it expires 12 months from the date its approved .Since I need to undergo some formalities once in UK , My job will start 2 -3 week after i arrive in UK .hance it would expire short of 12 motnhs from my actual start date . While i was going through the visa guidline , I read that i can stay for one more month beyond the visa expiry . Now my quation is - Should i answer that question as - a. 12 months. b. 13 months. c. 3 years (and explain the situation in the comments section right in the end of visa appliaction) . Thanks
