28-Day Grace Period is Replaced by 14-Day Grace Period


Changes to periods within which applications for further leave to remain can be made by overstayers

The 28-day grace period of allowed overstay is abolished now. If the particular application has not been approved, 3C leave has expired, a time limit to appeal or bring administrative review has expired or an appeal or administrative review has finished, there now is a 14-day grace period so that a new application can be submitted.

The change does not affect periods of time prior to 24 November 2016 that will be disregarded for Indefinite Leave to Remain applications based on continuous lawful residence.
