Default Landing but not staying?

Hi all,
I left a very excited message today on the timeline thread - my partner received his PPR yesterday!!! All really exciting.
However, I've just been offered a contract for work that takes me until April - and we planned to move in February but now this has changed because it's too good to pass up.
His visa will expire on Feb 22nd - I was wondering if this means we can go to Canada at Christmas for a holiday - LAND - and then come back to UK and then officially move in April?
Does this make sense?
I think this should be fine, but just want to check.
Thanks!

Sorry I'm confused as I thought the visa was valid for 5 years. Do you mean he must land before Feb 22 as that is 12 months from when he took the medical if so then I believe you will have no problems landing at christmas then returning in April as you only need to live there 2 years out of the 5.

Sorry that wasn't very clear! Yes - that's exactly what I meant. That is great news - and a real relief.
Thanks!

I've no idea if you could get a 2 month extension and land in April to save an expensive trip at christmas. Worth looking into?

Its a nonstarter. You have to land by the date your medicals expire basically.


As the OP suspected, just land at Xmas, and then go back permanently at your leisure (2 years out of five requirement notwithstanding). Thousands of people have worn that path flat before you.

Had a feeling it was a nonstarter. Not a prob for us as living out of 4 suitcases so will book next available flight if visa ever arrives (med req please)
