The applicant will need to reside in the UK for at least 5 years which start from the date when he / she first entered the UK or first granted leave to remain. They can however make their applications 28 days before completing their 5 years in the UK. If the applicants have delayed their first arrival in the UK for a maximum of 3 months, they may be able to commence their five year time period from the date of entry clearance instead of date of arrival.

English Language Knowledge for ILR

You can prove English language requirements by having either:

an English qualification at B1, B2, C1 or C2 level

a degree taught or researched in English

national of an English-speaking country

The requirement of English Language knowledge is exempt in cases when applicants are aged 65 or over or is unable to due to disabilities or is a citizen of countries that are exempt from.

Life in the UK Test for ILR

Another important part of fulfilling the knowledge of language and life requires you to pass the Life in the UK test.

The test is required under the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 and taken in order to test the knowledge of British life and sufficient proficiency in the English language.


Absences Allowed

The home office has become quite generous in allowing absences for maximum 6 months in a year, provided the applicant is able to provide evidence that such absences (if that long) were work related.

Administrative Review / Judicial Review

Refusal of Indefinite Leave to remain Application

If the Indefinite leave to remain application is refused by the Home office, the applicant is to be given a right of administrative review of the decision that must be exercised within 14 days of the date of service of decision. There will not be any general right of appeal against any such decision made by the home office. If the administrative review also fails, the matter then can be taken to the Upper Tribunal by lodging judicial review proceedings.
