The new rules for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) are aimed at making the process easier for those seeking a permanent residency. The main changes are in relation to the family and private life routes. Under the new rules, a child born in the UK can apply for indefinite leave to remain after seven years of residence. This change is designed to make it easier for the children of foreign parents to stay in the UK.
The first step in the application process is to ensure that applicants have the necessary academic and English language qualifications. The required level is B1 under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. There are several test centres in the UK that offer these tests. When applying for ILR, you must include your test pass certificate and test pass number.
Another important part of the application process is to document your absence from the UK. During the qualifying period, you must not have been absent from the UK for 180 days in a 12-month period. However, there are exceptions to this rule in exceptional circumstances. You must provide a letter from your employer explaining your absence from the UK.
Depending on your personal situation, you may also be required to provide certain documents. In some cases, you will need to provide proof of your salary. The minimum salary requirement is PS25,600. You will also need to provide birth certificates for any dependents. Additionally, you must submit a certified translation of any documents that are not written in English or Welsh.
