A person who was previously granted leave to remain for 30 months on the grounds of private life in the UK can apply for extension of his stay before the expiry of his leave.

The requirements to be met by an applicant for leave to remain on the grounds of private life in the UK are that at the date of application, the applicant:

  1. does not fall for refusal under any of the grounds in Section S-LTR 1.2 to S-LTR 1.5 in Appendix FM; and
  2. does not fall for refusal under any of the grounds in Section S-LTR 1.6 to 2.3 in Appendix FM; and
  3. has lived continuously in the UK for at least 20 years (discounting any period of imprisonment); or
  4. is under the age of 18 years and has lived continuously in the UK for at least 7 years (discounting any period of imprisonment); or
  5. is aged 18 years or above and under 25 years and has spent at least half of his life residing continuously in the UK (discounting any period of imprisonment); or
  6. is aged 18 years or above, has lived continuously in the UK for less than 20 years (discounting any period of imprisonment) but has no ties (including social, cultural or family) with the country to which he would have to go if required to leave the UK.

In considering applications under this paragraph, the Secretary of State shall attach less weight to private life in the UK established following refusal of an earlier application for leave to remain made under paragraph 276ADE.
