    until when

    Hi,
    are these sentences correct?
    1. Until when I have to get there?
    2. Until when I have to be there?
    3. Till when I have to be in the office?

    and if not what would be the correct form?
    Thanks in advance.

    See above. With my changes, they're OK but 2 and 3 would be more natural as "Until/Till what time ...?" or with a change in word order to "What time will I have to be there till?"

    I'm not sure what you were trying to say with #1. You can say "What time do I have to get there?" or "How long have I got to get there?" but your version doesn't work at all.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I am not a teacher.

    I think that you want to say "By when do I have to get there?" or "By what time do I have to get there?".

    Am I right?
