UK Settlement (Indefinite Leave to Remain)

We can help you with your UK immigration settlement application.

Settlement represents a significant, and usually the penultimate, step of the UK immigration journey. Settlement is sometimes called Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR).

Upon a successful settlement application, all previous immigration restrictions will be removed, including for example the length of time you may stay in the UK, restrictions on work, and restriction on access to public fund and government benefits.

Please refer to the EU Settlement Scheme Settled Status page if you are able to benefit from that route.

Paths towards settlement

For the majority of visa categories, 5 years residency is required before the settlement application, and the "mix and match" of different visa categories in order to meet the residency time requirement is generally not allowed.

In addition, there are general requirements that apply to settlement application. Please refer to the General UK Immigration Requirement page for more information.
