How to calculate the 6months spent outside the UK .



  • Please how is the calculation for the 6months spent outside the UK done, what date will be included or excluded for the calculation? Also what consideration is given if the year is a leap year? Assuming you left the UK on the 4th of September 2007 and entered the UK on the 3rd of March 2008.Many thanks.

    Good morning @oa

    Your dates of travel to and from the UK are not included in the calculation, this is due to you being in the UK on both the date you left the UK and the date you re-entered the UK.

    Using the dates you have provided, the total absence from the UK during that period would be 179 days.



  • Thanks a lot for calculatons.
