How to Apply for indefinite leave to remain or ILR in the U.K.?


The long residence ilr, indefinite leave to remain, ILR, is also very famously known as the permanent residence of the u.k. country

The long residence ilr, indefinite leave to remain, ILR, is also very famously known as the permanent residence of the u.k. country. Let me explain the whole concept with you in some simple words. The indefinite leave to remain in the U.K. is a legal permission to live as well as work in the territory of the U.K. without any kind of the restrictions or barriers. 

 

There are a few visa types, which can lead a person to get the long residence ilr or indefinite leave to remain in the U.K:

 

  1. Spouse visa
  2. Unmarried partner visa
  3. UK work permit visa
  4. The tier 1 visa
  5. UK visa of ancestry 
  6. Dependent visa of the U.K.
  7. European nationals visa.

 

In order to Apply for indefinite leave to remain in the U.K. a person needs to fulfil the criteria requirements of the same. The criteria requirements list is mentioned below:

 

  1. A person is required to complete at least 5 years of successful residence in the U.K. 
  2. The person should have the standard income 
  3. The absence of the person from the boundaries of the U.K. should not be more in the last five years.
  4. The professional proficiency of the English language is the must in order to Apply for indefinite leave to remain.

 

The indefinite leave to remain in the U.K. has no definite time set or time limit for it. A person can live in the U.K. with this visa type as long as a person wants along with all the citizen rights and no restrictions at all. However, the person should not spend two years consecutively outside the boundaries of the U.K. because this may lead to the loss of your indefinite leave to remain in the U.K. and then you need to apply for the same from the scratch. After 1 year of this indefinite leave of the U.K. a person will become eligible to get the permanent British citizenship as well. Now it is completely up to the person whether he or she wants to take the british citizenship or not. Any of the action that is considered illegal in the UK if performed by the person may lead to the loss of ILR or indefinite lead to remain permanently.
