This question already has an answer here:
So I’ve got a UK Visa with a start date of the 30th of April and I’ve booked a Flight which departs 23:55 on the 29th of April. That’s 5 minutes before my visa becomes active.
Will this pose a problem for me? I have to absolutely be in Manchester by 1st of May for an important meeting. The flight is Turkish airlines Abuja to Manchester, so there’s a layover in Istanbul.
