What is 3C leave to remain

If you have a restricted period of time to stay in the UK, you must apply to the Home Office for an extension before that period expires (this is the date on your biometric residence permit). If you submit a legitimate application to extend your leave within the 28 days prior to this date (this is known as submitting an “in time” application”), your leave to remain will continue until you hear from the decision-maker (and any appeal decision). Section 3C leave is what this is known as. You submit your supporting documentation to the Home Office.  Other organizations, like your employer, might request to examine those documents and not be aware that you still have rights, like the right to work and the right to get public assistance.
