Overstaying by a couple of days

My post study work visa expires on the 25 th march was wondering if I could leave on the 31st or 1st of April as I would have my salary in hand which would be handy. Overstaying 28 days or less is excusable in most circumstances? Do the airlines check for outgoing flights? I reckon they are more worried where you flying into whether you got the right dividends visa blah blah Any suggestions ? Many thanks

Are you hoping for answers that say fine, overstay, no problem? Because you won't get them. You have to leave when your visa expires. It is up to you to arrange with your employer that you receive your wages, either on the day you leave, or by bank transfer to an account of your choice.

Who here, realistically, is in a position to give you any authoritative information about getting round the rules? No-one will stop you leaving, whenever you choose to leave (provided you have legal permission to land wherever you're leaving for) - the only issue is whether you'd be allowed back in future, but that would be down to the relevant authorities. And you can't get an answer without asking them, can you?

Overstay Grace Period

Overstayers of any visa type escape banishment penalties if they leave the UK within 28 days after their visa expires. Unlike in the U.S. where even one day after the I-94 expiration date results in revocation of the visa and possible fines, there is a 28-day grace period for offenders.

Well yes you could. As patrick says no-one here is an immigration expert. The only way to find out is to ask the appropriate authorities, and to have a plan B if they don't grant the extension. I can't see them granting it just so you can be paid though. If you are paid cash then the company can just pay you on your final day. If it is paid into a bank account then it will be paid into that account as normal.
Either way you get your money.

You accomplish that by topping the first thread - not starting an identical one.
