What is Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)?

Indefinite leave to remain (ILR) is the option which allows a person to live in Britain indefinitely, also known as permanent residency. Should your application for Indefinite leave to remain be successful you are free to travel outside the United Kingdom as you are given a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP). This is referred to as a “Settlement Visa UK” or “Indefinite Leave to Remain in the United Kingdom.” It is the final need for any non-UK national or citizen who wishes to apply for British citizenship. An indefinite leave to remain holder is no longer subject to immigration control in the United Kingdom, and there are no restrictions to meet in terms of living, working, and so on. Indefinite leave to remain holders have many of the same rights and freedoms as UK residents or British citizens.

Why apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)?

There are various benefits to settling in the United Kingdom, these include the right to work in any UK business or profession. You are entitled to be employed or self-employed. Furthermore, you are free to engage in study whilst living in the United Kingdom. Also, you are eligible to healthcare and generally most NHS services. You may be eligible for benefits and with 10 years contribution of UK national insurance you qualify for the new State Pension. With consistent residence in the United Kingdom and holding ILR for 12 months along with other requirements you can apply for British Citizenship.

ILR Eligibility and Requirements.

You must meet a variety of qualifications and conditions to be eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain. A foreign national’s right to indefinite leave to remain in the UK is determined by their immigration category and the grounds on which they file their ILR application. For example, if you have lived in the country for ten years, you are eligible to apply for an ILR. The fundamental condition for UK ILR is that you have lived in the UK lawfully for a period of time, usually five years. However, this is insufficient for ILR on its own.
You must already be settled in the UK. Settled status means that the applicant has lived in the UK on another visa for at least four years.

Two years (5 years if application was made after 9th July 2012) settlement is required if you have been in the UK with a Marriage Visa or an un-married partner.

Students are excluded from applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) unless they have completed 10 years of legal residence.

For eligibility for Indefinite Leave to Remain you must provide UK visas and immigration evidence such as:

  • You must show evidence that you have lawfully resided in the United Kingdom for the relevant period.
  • You must demonstrate that you have not exceeded the allowed absences of 180 days from the United Kingdom for every 12 months of your qualifying period.
  • A Life in the UK test must be passed.
  • A required standard of English must be provided which is at least B1 level.
  • You must not have received any criminal convictions or breaches of your immigration status unless the allocated time has passed depending on your sentence.

Our years of expertise can handle, book and provide evidence to help you meet all these criteria as well as advise you on any personal circumstances that may affect your application.

Starting a new business in the UK is very difficult now and even though we had investment funds, this is no longer enough. We transferred our business model from Turkey to London and thanks to the help of Global Law and their network of endorsing bodies, we were able to get our endorsement and secure visas for my family and I. I have already recommended Global Law to my business associates and I just want to thank them for taking care of everything from A-Z.

I want to thank Global law for securing my Start Up Visa. I was not sure if I could get this visa at first, but with the careful guidance and expert advice from Tomas and his team it was unbelievable when I received the good news. I recommend that even if you are not sure about your business idea to let Global Law pre-approved. Thanks again guys.
