Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) 

MLC Immigration Lawyers are experienced at helping migrants secure Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in the UK and can support you in the application process to ensure a successful result.

Individuals who have held the same type of British visa for 5 years or more are eligible to apply for ILR, although in certain circumstances you may be eligible after just 3 years. Indefinite Leave to Remain enables migrants from outside of the UK to stay in the UK without restrictions and is the first step to take before applying for full British citizenship or naturalisation.

Almost all other British visa routes are eligible to apply for ILR after meeting certain other requirements, including those who have been on Tier 1 Visas, Tier 2 Work Visas, and Spouse Visas.

The conditions that you need to meet to qualify for ILR are as follows:

  • You have held the same type of British visa for 5 years or more
  • Proof that you meet the B1 levels of English
  • You must pass the Life in the UK test
  • No criminal record and you cannot have breached the immigration laws during your stay in the UK
  • You cannot have spent more than 180 days outside of the UK within any year of living in the UK

The requirements can vary so it’s best to speak to an Immigration Lawyer to determine if you’re eligible to apply and what you will need to include with your ILR application.

MLC Immigration Lawyers specialise in supporting or representing individuals seeking leave to remain for all types of British work visas. We will help ensure your application process is straightforward and aim to help you successfully secure leave to remain in the UK.
