Are you interested in exploring opportunities to remain in the UK? At Ash Norton, we routinely work with clients who, owing to business reasons, are looking to explore opportunities to extend the amount of time that they remain in the UK. Increasingly, we are working with clients who are looking to settle in the UK, but who are unfamiliar with the legal process involved.

Settlement in the UK

‘Settlement’, or ‘Indefinite Leave to Remain’, refers to your ability to remain in the UK without being subject to time restrictions or the need to renew visas.

The UK is an attractive place to live, not least because of its competitive business environment, where entrepreneurship and innovation is welcomed and encouraged. However, there are certain criteria that need to be met before you can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain:

  • You must have completed the requisite amount of leave that is applicable to your circumstances before you make your application; and
  • You must be able to prove that you have sufficient experience and knowledge of life and culture in the UK. This will typically involve your passing the Home Office’s ‘Life in the UK’ assessment.

The rules governing settlement in the UK can be challenging to understand. It is advisable to work with professionals who can handle most of your application for you, allowing you to concentrate on more important matters.
