I am about to apply for an extension to my Tier 1 (General)

Customer Question

I am about to apply for an extension to my Tier 1 (General) UK visa but my maintenance funds would have been in my account for the required 90days, 2weeks after my present leave to remain lapses. Would I be able to successfully apply given the 28-day overstaying clause?

The requirement is that you must have the funds at the date of the application. You should therefore apply on the date when you meet the funds criteria i.e. 2 weeks after your current leave expires. Your extension application should be fine as you will bewithin the 28 days overstay rule.

Hope this helps. Please leave feedback
