Extension GVT absence time limitation

Is the extension of another two years of GTV requires 180 day limitation of absence or this limitation is only apply for ILR. I am in exceptional talent but want to go USA in the last year and come back to extend. Thanks.

I think it is mostly for ILR but you need to show proof of earnings as part of your extension application.

Hi @Francisca_Chiedu is it necessary to have had warnings for the full period of first GTV before extension?

I had a GtV for 3 years, I was employed for 2.8 years - employment ended this month. I will extend in August - will miss showing earnings for July 24 and initial 3-4 months at the start of the visa.

Will this be a risk?

Thanks for your input :pray:

You don’t have to show earnings for all this period. Just get your P45 to show all your previous tax contributions while on the job. Also add your payslips.

That means if I worked in an other country and stayed outside the UK over 6 months in my last year ( I can flight back each three months) it is still fine to an extension. I did not see any requirement for the time to stay to extend my visa.
