Exclamation Light switch

I am finishing my basement off. I have a split stair case going into the basement with a light at the turn. I have wired can lights for the finshed portion. The light switch is directly across from my stairs, but is approx 8 feet from the last step. The light from the stair case is enough to see to the bottom of the stairs, and into the finished protion. The light switch has a green light on it when the lights are off. By code, do I have to have a switch available prior to entering the basement iarea f there is ample light to see?

Sounds like a judgment call. Make a drawing with measurements and ask your inspector.
