I have a client on an Ancestral visa which expires on the 20th November. We have applied for his Indefinite Leave to remain and he has his Biometric appointment on 12th November. Will this cause a problem as in theory he will be 8 days short of his 5 years qualification period. He has a South African passport


Not a problem as he may apply for ILR up to 28 days before the 5 years period is up.

All the best. Please click on 5 stars
