Does the visitor visa allow visa holders to stay for 6months in a year or is it more along the lines that you cannot stay for more than 6 months at a time? Asking for parents.

And recommend to stay away at least for another 5 to 6 months. Uncle of mine was rejected his visa extension since his return trips were 3 months apart

You can extend from here, there is paperwork but possible, look it up.

It’s 6 months at a time

Won’t it raise an alarm: say u stay for 5 months.. go out and come back after 2 months and again stay for another 5 months..

You cannot live consecutively for more than 6 months at a time on the visitor visa.

Here’s what a paid lawyer told me. Time out must be > Time in.

So if your mother visits for 3 months, it’s recommended she doesn’t come back for another 4-5 months.

Nothing to do with a calendar year.

Now you can stay for up to 6 months and you CAN extend but may cause problems for future trips unless you have a very good reason.
