I am a Pakistani living in Jordan due to work I intend on

This answer was rated:

I am a Pakistani living in Jordan due to work
I intend on going to the uk for holidays this summer with my family
But i have a question
My Jordanian residency is ending in about 2 months
And Jordan just made a rule that if your residency expires while you're in a different country,youdon'tget to come back for 5 years.
I need to know, if i am to apply for uk visa and provide them my residency (which is about to expire in 2 months) will the visa get rejected or accepted?
I wouldn't care if it got denied right now
but since i have to pay about 500 pounds for the visa
I need to make sure that it doesn't get rejected.
If you ask why i don't just apply for visa after i renew my residency, its because the residency process will take me about 1 and a half month and on top of that uk visa will take 2-3 weeks. And my organization, which will be the people paying for the flight, need to be informed about the trip 15 days before leaving.
And by that time, by kids summer vacation will end.
Question: If i am to apply for uk visa and provide them my residency (which is about to expire in 2 months) will the visa get rejected or accepted?

Good evening, unfortunately it would ideal to renew your Jordan residence before going for a visit and you would be required to show you still have valid residence in U.K.

How long you planning to be U.K. for

But here's the thing
why would they be concerned about my jordanian residency.
In their prespective, my residency is about to expire but obviously i could just go back to pakistan
But i'm not doing that because my organization is renewing my residency
So why would they decline my visa application?

When making application the country you are resident in shows must be shown for visit visa.

There’s a possibility visa can be refused.

If they konw that i've been to the uk before
Would it help

They keep records it’s the fact your residency is expiring.

Customer: replied 2 days ago.
my past history of travelling to the uk wouldn't make things better?

They do consider you have come to the U.K. before but as mentioned because of expiry of residency that will be a problem.
