A successful ILR application grants an applicant the right to live and work in the UK without any immigration restrictions.
Securing Indefinite Leave to Remain, or Permanent Residence, also entitles holders to subsequently apply for naturalisation.
EEA nationals and their family members are required first to make a formal application to confirm their status as permanently resident in the UK before they can apply for British Citizenship.
The qualifying criteria for Indefinite Leave to Remain are strict. They are dependent on your current UK visa type, and how long you have been resident in the UK for. Processing times also vary greatly depending on your visa class.
As such it is important to understand the requirements for Indefinite Leave to Remain, for you and any dependants, as well as the supporting documents you will need to submit as part of your ILR application.
Given the complexity of the different access routes to Indefinite Leave to Remain, and with so much at stake for you and your future, it is important to seek legal advice early on the options open to you for your specific circumstances, to avoid delays and errors, and to ensure your case is effectively represented to UKVI.
