ILR and Long Residence in the UK

There are many routes available to obtaining ILR status in the UK. Your personal circumstances, work or study situation, and which UK visa you have all contribute to your ability to be granted indefinite leave.

In most cases, an overseas national can apply for ILR after five years of lawful residence in the UK. Some visas allow you to gain indefinite leave to remain status sooner, usually after living in the UK with one of the following visas for two or three years. You can view our page here for details on ILR eligibility.

You may be able to combine your current and previous visas to gain long residence ILR. This is a complicated procedure and application process, so if you feel you may be eligible for ILR with more than one visa, it is best to seek professional support from immigration experts.
