Could you please clarify regarding entrance date and BRP?
I have to provide Date I plan to arrive in the UK in application.
“Why this information is important:
If your application is successful, you will be granted a visa to enter the UK. The visa will only be valid for entry to the UK for 30 days. if your visa expires before you travel to the UK, you will have to apply for a replacement visa.
After you arrive in the UK, you will collect a biometric residence permit, which will show that you have permission to remain in the UK.”
So, it is not clear if this date is impaction to any? f.e. to BRP issue date and period when it can be collected.
Like 10 days after my planned arrival date, etc…
Otherwise - I can provide any date and travel when visa is granter (during this 30days period when it is valid). But how and when I can collect BRP in this case?
I’m currently finalising my Stage 2 application and after that will get an appointment to provide documents to visa centre (no idea when it will be).
- Appointment will be in a week or two (Nov 11th week)
- Visa process can take up to 8 weeks
So it looks I can be be granted a visa to enter the UK somewhere at End if December, or at first-second week of January.
So, I’m thinking to say that I’m going to arrive Jan 13th
What do you think?
