Long Residence

Long residence, which grants Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR or Permanent Residency), allows you to remain in the UK permanently and gives you the freedom to take up any kind of work in the UK. Indefinite leave to remain is normally only granted to people who are in a long term category that specifically leads to ILR. But where you have usually been in a series of various “longer-term” immigration categories, you may find yourself reaching a period of 10 years, which is the prerequisite for a long residence visa application.

Long Residence Applications are usually for the periods of:

  • 7 Years Long Residency (For Children)
  • 10 Years Continuous Residency
  • 14 Years Continuous Residency (Now Defunct)
  • 20 Years’ Long Residency (With Broken Leave, aka Overstaying)

In some circumstances, where an applicant has spent more than 1/2 their life in the UK, they may qualify for a Long Residence Application
