Note down your immigration history and where there may be gaps including holidays outside the UK. Establish if you meet the 5-year rule by counting the exact amount of time you have been in the UK.

If you think you do not meet the 5-year qualifying period, wait until you do. If this is not an option, consult an adviser.
