What routes are there to Indefinite Leave to Remain?
Previously some applicants who obtained a spouse visa before July 2012 will be eligible to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain after 2 years on a spouse or parter visa. It is likely most of these migrants have now obtained their ILR therefore the chances of being on the 2 year route is small. for most other migrants they will fall under the main 5 year Indefinite Leave to Remain routes. These routes are:
- Completion of 5 years on a work visa such as Tier 1 or Tier 2
- Completion of 5 Years on a spouse visa issued on or after July 2012
- Completion of 10 years in the UK legally under different visas
- Completion of 14 years in the UK legally and/or illegally under different visa categories
