Today’s video update will discuss the 10-year residence ILR and how to apply for it.
Have you continuously lived 10 years lawfully in the UK?
The first query to ask is regarding your absences from the UK. Have you travelled out of the UK for above 540 days during these 10 years? Have you been absent for six months or above at a single stretch from the UK?
The following question is if you have consistently made timely applications to prolong your leave to remain. Has the Home Office ever returned your application as invalid? It might have appeared insignificant at the time, but it might have caused you to be an overstayer even though you might not have known about it.
So, have you ever been an overstayer?
If your immigration history is beyond reproach and absences from the United Kingdom do not surpass 540 days in 10 years, you are qualified to apply for indefinite leave to remain.
So what are the application requirements for ILR, which is established on 10 years long residence?
