I am on Tier 2 general visa eligible for ILR soon but confused on when should I go for same day ILR appointment.

I have made my application from outside the UK,

1. Stamping done on the “5th-Feb-2013”
2. Entered UK on the “17th-Feb-2013”
3. Started work on “1st-May-2013” due to delay in assignment.

Now what I am trying to understand is, If I am eligible for ILR

1. On the “5th-Feb-2018”
2. On the “17th-Feb-2018”
3. On the “1st-May-2018”

Any help is much appreciated and Thanks in advance

We would be happy to provide you advice on your eligibility for Tier 2 ILR during a legal consultation with one of our Business Immigration legal advisors.
