Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
You cannot apply for ILR outside the UK, it is only an application that can be made within the UK.I have to go to India now on an urgent basis. And If I am unable to return before the visa expires, Can I be able to apply for ILR from India (outside of UK)?
You CANNOT apply for ilr if you do NOT hold a qualifying visa. A visitor visa is NOT a qualifying visa.I was thinking to apply as family visitor visa rather one more dependant extension as it involves paying much for a short period of time and reach UK and then I can apply ILR.

Ref Visa type: "Priority" Spouse visa - Family settlement / Appendix FM Partner
Just a small query I was being told I cannot apply ILR outside UK in this forum.
What is this visa "Priority Spouse visa - Family settlement / Appendix FM Partner" we are referring to?
At the moment I have been in UK for continuously for 5 years as ILR Partner.
Now that I am eligible after November 2020 I can apply for ILR from India from this category as I am currently residing in India for personal reasons.
Can anyone tell me If this Family Settlement and ILR are one .
If both are same , Can I apply from India and what is the procedure please.
Do let us know the results of your ILR application after your return.(i) leave to enter granted on the basis of entry clearance as a partner granted under paragraph D-ECP.1.1
