Indefinite Leave to Remain
Indefinite Leave to Remain is a goal for many migrants. After spending more than five years in the UK, many wish to make it their permanent home and secure their status.
Indefinite Leave to Remain allows you and your family the right to secure your status in the UK. You will be entitled to work and live free from visa restrictions. You will also have security that if you leave the UK you will not be refused re-entry. However, if you reside out of the UK for a continuous period of two years your Indefinite Leave to Remain will be revoked.
However, there are strict and ever changing requirements as to who can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain, with people being refused for small mistakes on past tax returns to not earning enough.
As with other applications, there are eligibility requirements which our team of expert immigration lawyers can advise you on. Additionally, there are certain documents you will need to provide with your application, and our team can advise you on what you will need and ensure that these meet the requirements.

To be eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain, you must meet the continuous residency requirements. This means that you cannot have been outside the UK for more than 180 days in a 12-month period. The 180 days is roughly six months, so the allowance is quite generous. However, please be aware that those on a Tier 2 General Visa and Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa are often caught out because they have to travel extensively for work.
If you qualify for Indefinite Leave to Remain prior to your spouse/partner and/or dependent children, they will need to continue on a points-based visa until they meet the continuous residency requirements.
