A genuine visitor is a person who will leave the UK at the end of the visit, will not live in the UK for extended periods or make the UK their main home, has sufficient funds for their support during the visit and who intends to undertake permitted visit activities and not prohibited activities. The assessment of the genuineness of a visitor relates to the particular factors of the individual application, but may include the applicant’s personal and economic ties to their country of residence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We advise on our website that if you wish to apply to extend your leave to remain on the basis of your family life, the earliest you can apply is 28 days before your current permission to stay in the UK under the family Immigration Rules expires.</p><p>If an applicant applies more than 28 days before their leave expires or they are within 28 days of completing the relevant period of time spent in the UK, they are likely to face a shortfall at the end of their qualifying period for settlement, necessitating an additional application with associated fees and charges.</p><p>The above requirement plays an essential part in the department’s workforce planning, allowing us to anticipate demand based upon previous grants of leave and to allocate resource appropriately.</p><p>These Rules provide for extant leave in the relevant category at the date of application to be added to the new grant of such leave, up to a maximum of 28 days, ensuring that no leave is lost.</p><p>UK Visas &amp; Immigration is currently reviewing application service standards. Current service standards reflect how long an application may take to assess due to a wide range of factors.</p>
