ILR 5 Year route

Post by singma33 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 2:04 pm

Hello,

I am on the 5 year spouse visa and due to expire on 15/04/20. I understand you can only apply 28 days before the expiry date. Can you please let me know what is the process of the online application form?

I have already taken the life in the UK test. Do we need letter from employers to confirm salary? Where do we submit these documents, are they submitted through the online application in digital format? What about the passport?

Thank you for your help

It is 28 days from completing your 5 years in the UK :!: :!:

Thank you for your reply.

I have actually been in the UK since August 2008, initially with student visa->post study work->Tier 2 general then now I am on partner/spouse visa. Which means I have already been in the UK for 11 years.

Does this mean I can apply any time.. or I need to wait until close to the expiry date of my current visa?

This has nothing to do with visa expiry. As I said, 28 days from completing your 5 years under spouse visa. Use your spouse visa issue date to calculate the 5 years

Why hadn't you applied ILR on long residence basis in July/Aug 2018?

Hello, It is because I was on the partner visa and I still had many months of remain left. I did not want to switch so soon after paying so much money applying. Now I am on the 5 year partner leave so I am planning to apply on this route for the indefinite leave. Is this still okay?
