I had to leave to look after my father

My father fell ill

    • My father fell ill and required a prolonged hospital admission and surgery. Being the only child, I had to go back to support him. I took all my annual leave and then loss of pay leave. When I was close to completing one month of loss of pay, I requested my visa be cancelled. However this caused some difficulties.
      • I had rented a flat for 12 months and I had to terminate my tenancy early
      • I could not enter the UK to clear my flat with all my personal belongings still there
      • I did not have sufficient local support to pack everything
    • Finally I was allowed to carry over some leave from the the following year and so I did not have to cancel my visa. I was able to return 5 weeks after I left and rejoined.
