Permanent Residency & Settlement
Once a client is in the UK and has normally held their Spouse, Unmarried Partner or Same Sex visa for at least 5 years, then they are eligible to apply for a Permanent Residency Visa which is commonly known as Indefinite Leave to Remain. This visa allows them to settle in the UK without any immigration restrictions or the need to keep extending their visa. We can help clients to remain in the UK by completing their Settlement Visa application and ensure that they meet the Settlement / ILR visa rules. We can even provide you with a same day visa service.
Once a client is in possession of their Permanent Residency Visa , then they are eligible for naturalising as a British Citizen. This normally occurs immediately after obtaining the Permanent Residency Visa status. We will prepare and manage the entire British Citizenship Application process by ensuring you meet the latest rules in place such as the residency requirements and help with booking the Citizenship ceremony. This is often the final stage in the entire Immigration application process.
