You have recently come back from an overseas holiday
@afriza: No, overseas is only used when you actually must cross the sea, usually when you travel to another continent. It just doesn't matter how many seas, beyond one. If you were travelling from India to Pakistan, you would say I'm going abroad. – Jon Purdy Feb 1 '11 at 7:55 Dec 06, 2018 · However, if you've recently returned to the UK after a period living outside of the common travel area, you may have to show that you satisfy the habitual residence test in order to claim certain means-tested benefits. You should not be subject to the test if you've simply been abroad on a long holiday.
