What are the Requirements for Indefinite Leave to Remain?
Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) is a form of UK permanent residence. As an ILR holder, you can live in the UK without any restrictions, which makes it a particularly sought-after immigration status.
You can apply for ILR after you have spent a certain period of time lawfully living in the UK. Typically, you can apply for ILR after five years of lawful residence in the UK. However, in certain circumstances you could be eligible sooner.
The main requirements for ILR are as follows:
- Spent a certain period of time lawfully living in the UK (typically five years)
- No breach of immigration laws during your time in the UK
- A pass in the Life in the UK test
- Ability to prove that you possess at least a B1 level of English if you are from a non-English-speaking country
- Not spent more than 180 days outside of the UK in a 12-month period during your UK residency
There are two ILR application forms:
- Form Set (M) needs to be completed when someone applies for ILR as a partner of someone, or a parent of a child who is already settled in the UK
- Form Set (0) is for all other ILR applications
If you are a non-EEA national and you want to visit London (or any part of the UK) as a tourist, you will need to apply for the Standard Visitor Visa. This visa enables you to travel throughout the United Kingdom for up to six months.
The main requirements for a visitor visa are as follows:
- Must demonstrate you intend to leave the UK by the date you visa would expire
- You have sufficient funds to support yourself and any dependents whilst you are in the UK
- You have an onward/return journey ticket, or you can prove that you have the financial means of buying an onward/return ticket
