If you have spent a significant amount of time living in the UK, you might already consider it your home and want to secure the ability to remain in the UK on a more permanent basis. Providing that you have been in the UK for at least five years, you might be eligible to apply for British citizenship. Alternatively, you may also be able to apply for settlement (formally referred to as ‘indefinite leave to remain’ or ILR) if you have been living in the UK for as little as two years.
Because of the long-term benefits offered by citizenship and ILR, application fees tend to be expensive and non-refundable, from up to £1500 for citizenship applications to as much as £2885 for ILR.
Book a consultation with our trusted UK immigration solicitor to discuss your specific needs and find out your options before making an application for British citizenship or Indefinite Leave to Remain.
