Will my UK visa be rejected if I applied 1.5 hours too early? The student visa application says to apply no more than 3 months in advance. I applied on June 10 in Japan, but that ended up being 1.5 hours too early in the UK (June 9 22:30 instead of June 10 for a Sep 10 course start date). My biometrics appointment is in a week. Should I cancel for a refund and reapply?

    90 days doesn't mean 3 months, so 90 days before September 10 is June 12, not June 10. – Henrik supports the community Jun 9 '18 at 22:27
  • Yes, you're right. The application specified 3 months so I edited my question. So technically I'm 92 days and 1.5 hours early. – Mir Jun 9 '18 at 23:01
  • It's reasonable to want to enter the UK a few days before the course start date so you can unpack and get over jet lag. If you do apply again, consider adjusting your planned arrival date. – user16259 Jun 10 '18 at 7:02
  • @user16259 Assuming the earliest application date depends on arrival date rather than course start date. – David Richerby Jun 10 '18 at 10:09
  • @DavidRicherby I believe it does, but that doesn't affect the point I wanted to make: the asker appeared to be planning to get off a plane and go direct to course registration. If there are any problems it's easier to deal with them when you're not jet lagged. – user16259 Jun 10 '18 at 10:22
