ILR eligibility according to the new rule Jan 2013

Post by tier1_selfemployed » Sat Feb 02, 2013 12:47 pm

Hi all,

Can someone please clarify if I would be eligible for ILR?

From today's date going back 5 years I have had continuous / overlapping leave to remain (Tier 2 WP and Tier 1 General). However I have been out of UK for continuous 3 months (in the 1st calendar yr) and continuous 9 months (but split across calendar years 3rd and 4th for 5 & 4 months resp). Will this be a problem or can I go ahead with ILR?

Thanks for your help.

The law says you can not say more than 180 days in a year to qualify Ilr. I think it is fine. Better advise with a lawyer.
