Settlement/Settled Status/Indefinite Leave to Remain

“Settlement”, “Permanent Residence” (PR), “Settled Status” and “Indefinite Leave to Remain” (ILR) all mean the same thing: the right to live and work in the UK without restriction on a permanent basis and the right to leave the UK and re-enter – as long as you do not stay outside for too long.

“Permanent Residence” was the old term that was used in EU law which has now been replaced by “Settled Status”.

If you acquire settlement you will retain your original nationality. Settlement does not provide all the benefits that British citizenship does but it does provide a lot of them.

In most cases settlement is acquired by living in the UK for a certain number of years. A migrant who has leave on a working visa, family visa or EEA visa may be able – depending on their circumstances – to apply for settlement after five years’ continuous leave.

And, under a different rule, a migrant may be able to apply for settlement after ten years’ continuous lawful leave on any combination of visas.

Migrants in some Tier 1 and Innovator categories may be eligible for settlement in three years or even two years and, in a few other cases, a migrant may be entitled to settlement straightaway.

And in cases where the migrant is relying on unlawful residence in the UK it may possible to acquire settlement, but the rules about his are quite complicated. In every case the migrant must have lived in the UK for at least five years and in some cases the required period is much longer than this.

If you think that you might be entitled to apply for settlement we can give you accurate advice about your situation. If you decide to apply for settlement we can help you with your application.

We can –
  • fill out the application form for you.
  • give you detailed advice about the supporting documents you require.
  • write a covering letter for the application, which will present the application in an orderly way.
