I am currently on a Tier 2 general visa that expires on 14 July 2018. I am planning to submit my application for visa extension tomorrow.
On the website they state that the new visa could take up to 8 weeks to process. Which would take me over the expiry of my current visa.
What would the implications of this be ?
- Should I rather go for the premium service?
- Would it affect my ILR application in two years, if my visa is not processed in time?
- Would I be allowed to stay in the country after I submitted my application, after my current visa has expired?
Thanks in advance.
