Dear Home Office,
My wife is currently on Tier 2 general Dependent visa and she is eligible for ILR in September 2019 via the 5 years dependent route. She was granted the visa in Sept 2014 and renewed in Feb 2017 and is valid till December 2019.
Currently she is spending time in India due to personal reason and she plans to spent some more time there. I will be thankful if you can let me know if, when assessing for continuous residence for application of ILR will the days absent from the UK for a period of 180 days be applicable to Tier 2 General dependent visa holder?
Thank you for your enquiry dated the 5th August regarding ILR.
