What is the UK settlement application process?
As a part of your application, you will be required to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge. If needed, you must complete your Immigration Health Surcharge assessment before submitting your FLR FP Form.
Your application process may vary based on your immigration routes. For example, if you wish to apply for ILR, you first need to spend at least 5 years in the UK.
If you are applying for UK settlement either under ILR or British naturalisation, you will also need to seat two different exams. These are the Life in the UK Test, to check your knowledge of British history and customs, and an English language exam to assess your proficiency.
The minimum level of English proficiency may vary based on your immigration route. Your IAS immigration lawyers can help you check your eligibility and individuate the correct requirements to make your application successful.
If you are a single applicant, the FLR FP Form fees are £1,033. If you are applying with your family, the fee increases by £1,033 for each dependant.
The standard processing time for further leave to remain applications may vary depending on your current immigration status. In some cases, you may be eligible to apply for the Home Office’s priority service.
If your application is successful, you and your family will receive a Residence Permit.
