Only periods of "residence" count for the 10 year ILR. Being in the UK in a visitor's capacity does not amount to residence. You did not reside in the UK you had merely visited it.

The Convention on Road Traffic (1949) which the UK has ratified is the source for permitting holders of international driving permits to drive in the UK for a year.

I believe you were "asked to leave" as part of the BIA's campaign to improve its removal statistics.

This is not a change of practice.

Your Leave to Enter commenced when you first entered the UK on the basis of a specific Entry Clearance / Visa.

Sweethina Sorry to hear about your problems. By submitting the ILR application you have only created yourself more troubles. There is NO chance on earth you will be given an ILR. Forget the £750 that you put in the bin (sure you can find some better use for that) why on earth notify BIA that you ar...

Just to add that if you do not intend your daughter to travel from the UK (I understand that you need to travel but not sure whether the same applies to your daughter) until you all get ILRs then there is no need to submit an FLR application form for her. As long as your child does not leave the UK,...

Your case is not straightforward (to say the least). You are highly advised to consult an immigration specialist who should be able to present your case in the best possible light.

If he answers "Yes" then his application will automatically fall to be refused - no discretion here.

The question in the ILR form is "Are you receiving any public funds?". This IMHV is a simple question - it does not ask you whether you were receiving these funds some time in the past. All it asks is whether you are receiving any of these funds NOW. So if you stop getting the CB payments even a mon...

I suspect that the particular person was admitted to the UK on the back of a "sponsorship undertaking". In that case, the person in question cannot have recourse to some specific public funds for five years starting from the date he or she first arrive in the UK. This is regardless of any ILR status.

Or put it another way, if they did bring in such a blanket ban then the matter would get taken to Court and just as in the recent CoA case the Home Office would lose. Not if the change is brought in as an Act of Parliament to amend the Immigration Act. Ultimately if community pressure to change the...

If you switched status in-country you should either have a Leave To Remain stamp in your passport or a letter called "ICD 0358" granting you Leave to Remain in the UK. The relevant date is the date you switched you immigration status (Leave to Remain) to Work Permit not the date of the work permit.

As previous posters have suggested your husband should return to Uganda and seek a spouse entry visa from there. There is no chance he could do it in-country. The fact that he has overstayed in the past should not be a major factor that can deny him a visa. The main issue will be to convince the vis...

Sounds like you paid the fixed penalties hence no offence was recorded. You will need to disclose it on your ILR application but it should not have an impact on the outcome of your application.
