Settlement Types

Not all visa routes lead to settlement, and it’s crucial to identify the ones that pave the way for ILR. Among the visa categories that can ultimately lead to settlement are:

Skilled Worker Visa

Skilled professionals who secure a job offer from a UK employer can embark on a path towards ILR. This visa category is ideal for those contributing their expertise to the UK workforce.

Family and Partner Visas

Reuniting with family members in the UK is possible through Family and Partner Visas. Spouses, partners, children, and dependent relatives can find opportunities to settle in the UK under these categories.

Long Residency

Individuals who have lived continuously in the UK for an extended period can explore the Long Residency route. Depending on the duration of your stay, you may be eligible for ILR after five or ten years.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for Indefinite Leave To Remain, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Continuous UK Residence: You must have lived continuously in the UK during the qualifying period.
  • Good Character: Applicants must demonstrate good character throughout their stay in the UK.
  • Life in the UK Test: Passing the ‘Life in the UK’ test is mandatory to prove your knowledge of British life and culture.
  • English Language Test (if required): Some applicants must pass an English language test as part of their application.
  • Limited Time Abroad: You should not have spent more than 180 days outside the UK during the qualifying period.

Different Routes to Settlement

The time required to qualify for ILR can vary based on your specific visa route. At BPA Immigration Lawyers, we understand the intricacies of each route and can guide you through the process efficiently. Here are the main routes to settlement:

  • 2, 3, 5, or 10 Years: Depending on your specific visa, you may be eligible for ILR after living in the UK for 2, 3, 5, or 10 years.
  • Exceptional Circumstances: In certain situations, you can apply for ILR sooner. These circumstances include the death of a British spouse or a victim of domestic violence.
