Indefinite Leave to Remain in more detail
The type of evidence you need to provide in your application, and the length of the qualifying period (ie how many years you must have spent in the UK already) depend on the immigration category you were granted during that time.
Most visa categories have restrictions attached to them, and you will need to show that you have kept to the conditions of your visa throughout – with no breaks in lawful stay. Long periods of absence can determine whether your application will succeed or not, so all absences from the UK must be documented and evidenced where appropriate.
Your application will need to be supported with original evidence to show how you qualify, and by assessing your case individually, we can advise on the specific details and documentation you need to provide.
In most cases, you, and any adult dependants applying with you, will also need to pass a Life in the UK test and meet the English language requirement.
