My case - and history -
I carry a passport that the visa (tourist/leave to enter) is issued at the airport (non-EU). I arrived end of 2016 and received 6 months (a lucky day ). I left after 1 month only (a very unlucky day).
Is it better to travel before those 6 months are over; i.e., is there such a regulation, that if immigration already issued a certain time (based on the evidence I brought with me and such), will the next immigration officer issue easily a visa for the time remaining from those 6 months?
Is the time of travel irrelevant and will it be completely a new case when I arrive in the UK?
I am trying to read the UK regulations and I cannot find a certain green light for the free travel thing, nor can I understand it.
From persons I've met, sometimes they were given 2 weeks or a month, etc . If everything is at the discretion of the immigration officer, what are my chances to get those 6 months per year ? I know about proof of funds. What steps should I take?
