The Settlement Checking System in UK when Applying for ILR

Updated on Friday 08th December 2017

Persons settled in UK have the possibility of calling the family members who can enter the country through applications for IRL (Indefinite Leave to Remain). A settlement checking service is offered by the local authorities to all citizens interested in this matter, in order to see the conditions involved and also the eligibility criteria. If you want to join the partner in UK, we suggest you address to our immigration lawyers in London for legal advice and guideline throughout the entire visa application process.

The meaning of ILR

The Indefinite Leave to Remain or the ILR as it is known represents an important status offered to individuals who are no longer considered immigrants in UK. Such status can be obtained after five years of living in the Great Britain. Even though it might seem that the ILR status has similarities with the British citizenship, please keep in mind that these are two different things. The ILR can grant an individual the status that he or she is no longer seen as an immigrant, and furthermore, he/she can leave and enter the UK without any restrictions or border controls. As for the citizenship, which represents the same thing as the naturalization, this is offered for persons who lived in the UK for at least 5 years without leaving the country for more than 90 days.
