Apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain

If you have lived or worked in the UK lawfully for five years, on a Visa that leads to settlement, or ten years, there is definitely a reason to celebrate because now, you qualify for indefinite leave to remain (ILR).

There are two ways in which you can apply for settlement in the UK, either by using the five-year route which is the case for most sponsored workers or family members of sponsored workers, or other settled citizens, or you could qualify under the long-residency route after ten years.

Advantages of ILR

Holding ILR status in the UK means that you are free of all immigration restrictions, and travelling in and out of the UK becomes smoother as you are now settled.

You are also one step closer to applying for naturalisation to become a British citizen. If you have ILR, you are also free to take up employment in the UK with any employer, without having to fork out costs for sponsorship and extensions, ultimately saving you thousands.
