What is ILR, and why do you need a solicitor?

Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) is a form of permanent residency that allows foreign nationals to live and work in the UK without any time restrictions or the need for a visa. ILR is also commonly referred to as "settlement" or "permanent residency".

A solicitor specialising in ILR can guide you through the application process, ensuring all requirements are met and increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome.

What are the Indefinite Leave to Remain requirements?

The requirements for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in the UK can vary depending on the specific visa category under which an individual is applying. Common requirements include:

  • Residency Period: Generally, applicants must have been living in the UK continuously for a specified period. The required length of residency can vary based on the visa category, ranging from 2 to 10 years.
  • Immigration Status: Applicants must have been in the UK on a valid visa or immigration status during the entire qualifying period. Time spent in the UK illegally or on certain types of visas may not count towards the residency requirement.
  • Absences from the UK: There are usually restrictions on the number and length of absences from the UK during the qualifying period. Excessive absences may affect eligibility.
  • Good Character: Applicants are generally required to demonstrate good character, which involves having a clean criminal record and not being involved in any activities that would be considered detrimental to the public interest or national security.
  • English Language Proficiency: Depending on the visa category, applicants may need to demonstrate proficiency in the English language.
  • Life in the UK Test: Applicants aged 18 to 65 are usually required to pass the Life in the UK Test, which assesses knowledge of British customs, traditions, and institutions.
  • Financial Requirements: Some visa categories may have financial requirements, such as demonstrating a certain level of income or savings.

Applicants must check the specific requirements applicable to their visa category, as immigration rules can change, and there may be updates or variations in criteria over time. Consulting with a qualified immigration solicitor can provide personalised guidance based on individual circumstances and the most current regulations.
