Hello! I just finished my degree and I’ll get getting it mid September and can apply for my 2 year graduate visa by the 25th! I was planning to go to India this week until the 24th september for medical reasons but my current one expires 31st of October
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?
Customer: I am indian, I live in India i haven’t applied yet as I need to show my degree for the application I’ll apply as soon as I do But I need to go home, will it be an issue to enter the country even though it’s more than a month before my old residence card expires
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about the visa?
Customer: no! As this is a general enquiry!
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

Good afternoon, I appreciate the help! To just summarise everything, I just want to know whether it would be a problem to enter the country on 24th and apply for my 2 year graduate route after!

You will be able to apply for the graduate visa before expiry    on 31 October however if you leave the U.K. whilst application is pending it can be withdrawed.
