Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)

Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)

If you have lived in the UK for a number of years and you intend to remain here, you may be eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain (ILR). ILR gives you the right to settle in the UK and live here indefinitely. Once you have been granted ILR, your travel to and from the UK will not be restricted and you will be allowed to take up employment or business activities without requiring a work permit.


To be eligible for ILR you need to show that you have been in the UK for a minimum period of time. The length of this period will depend on your immigration status which is determined by:

  • The category of visa you hold
  • Whether you have a partner (married or unmarried) who is a British or EU national
  • Your ability to support yourself (in some cases)
  • Whether you have ever stayed in the UK illegally

The time requirement can differ greatly depending on these factors. A member of our immigration team will be able to take all of your personal circumstances into account and advise you on whether you are eligible to apply for ILR and, if not, when the earliest opportunity is that you may do so.
