Changes to those applying “out-of-time”

Out-of-time applicants can no longer apply up to 28 days after the expiry date on their visa.

Under current rules applicants who, for whatever reason such as an innocent mistake, find themselves applying after their current leave has expired, have had their cases considered as long as their applications were submitted within 28 days of the expiry date.

Now, however, the government believe this sends out a message which is “inconsistent with the need to ensure compliance with immigration rules”, and so this “allowance” has been abolished.

Instead, out-of-time applications will only be considered if the applicant can show a good reason, beyond their control, why an in time application could not be made AND the application is made within 14 days of the expiry of leave.
