UK VISA Questions

United Kingdom

Hello! I'm not sure if this is the right place to get answers or maybe suggestions regarding a UK Visa Application. I applied for a temporary worker type of Visa to UK after Brexit. I was told that July-August is a busy busy month for the embassy in my country (Philippines). Sadly, I stayed in the UK for 17 extra days after my visa expired. I got my sponsorship letter couple days BEFORE my visa expires but did not apply for the renewal of Visa because I need to exit the UK and process everything in my country. I've read guidelines that for the type of visa that I applied for; you are allowed to enter the country 14 days early before the Visa takes effect and you can stay 14 days extra after your Visa expires. Now I'm tagged as OVERSTAYING. Turn around time for processing of Visa is approximately 15 working days. Today is the 15th working day; I still haven't got the email from the Embassy. I am still waiting. Anxiously waiting and panicking if they will approve my visa or not. :(

This is sad. It would be best that you go straight to the UK Embassy and reveal yourself regarding your status, and that you are desiring to clarify and confirm yourself and wanting your documents expedited LEGALLY. Immigrants to another country have to do things lawfully, and must go through "extreme vetting", you know. Good luck. May good and peace go with you. :-)
