The Home Office will abolish a 28 day grace period for out of time applications made on or after 24 November 2016. This is one of the most significant and unexpected changes to the UK Immigration Rules. The change will have a serious impact on those applicants who miss expiry of their leave or have to reapply after the refusal of their leave to remain or following an unsuccessful appeal.
