Why do you wish to extend your visa? Was it issued for 6 months?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes, it is visiting visa from Ukraine start from 18/02/2015 till 18/08/2015. My stepfather has 70th birthday party on 23th August and I would like to stay. Please help.
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
I am afraid there is no possibility of your visa being extended. It was issued for 6 months and this is the most generous visit visa duration anywhere in the world.
Sorry but if you do not return back, you risk being detained and facing an automatic ban for future visit visas.
All the best
