    I know its 4 yrs now, but its 2 yrs if you got your visa`s before the changes took place, its 2 yrs for me, because i got my visas in 2006 when the requirement was 2yrs,

     

    thanks anyway

    i appreciate your reply

    you should be ok now. Go and do the test and they will advise you and put all your paperwork in with your results when your time is ready.

    Mayjess,

     

    You will only have to do another year. They take the date you first validated your visa, then take off any absences from the country and calculate the eligibility date. You are quite right it will be 2 years for you.

    If you validated your visa before June 30th 2007 it is only 2 years.
