I am used to going to Tunisia every month or so on holiday ...I want to go for a month next year in the summer...we are going for 18 days soon and two weeks at christmas ... it soon adds up ... and I also want us to go other europeon countries ... this is my reason for asking ... I like to holiday a lot .... and we work for ourselves ...
Thanks truly but I was merely asking which is the correct fact 90 days a year or 90 days over 33 months? .... amongst other things the weather isnt the same in the uk ...and that can be done at weekends.
Do you know is it per year or over the period of the visa?
Sorry I really can't help you as I did it many moons ago (1997) back then you just had to spend more time in the Uk than out of it. You are right about the weather too Also back then got ILR after 12 months!!!! How it's changed..
I've just trawled through the site...and had a look at requirements for FLR, can't see it...I've not had to do this myself because we did the 'old regs', however I do know that when it comes to citizenship for my husband which he'll be eligible for in a few months you cannot have spent more than 90 days in the 12 months prior to application abroad or 270 in the last 3 years.
Think you may need to curb the jollies abroad for a while Bascar and play safe....lol...
That's not changed MM, if you've got ILR here, like Aymen and then you spend more than 2 years out of the country, you COULD lose your ILR status, and may have to reapply, unless you can prove you still have ties to the UK, or have been working abroad or your BRitish spouse has etc....so there is room for manoeuvre.
Those figures above are for if you apply for citizenship, a lot of people will have ILR for years and years before they apply for citizenship, but they can't if they spend more than that time out of the country in the years prior.
Yes those Rules are a nightmare but a google search just came up with a useful page on the web :lawontheweb.co.uk - sorry can't do hyperlink on my iPad - says 90 days in the last year and 270 in the last 3 years under rules on settlement
