ILR Tier 2 General

An application for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) can be submitted to the Home Office,  UKBA on completion of five years under the Tier 2 General Category (with a combination of Work Permit category). The applicant has to show that he has been working throughout the period of his work permit / Tier 2 General for the employer who sponsored his stay in the UK. The applicant should also a get a letter from the employer who sponsored his stay in the UK confirming that the applicant has been working for him/her and further that the applicant is still needed for the job for which he was sponsored to stay in the UK. The application Form SET (O) is used to submit the application.

Same Day Visa Service For ILR - Tier 2 General

We are registered with the Home Office, Public Enquiry Office, Croydon to provide same day visa service for ILR as a Tier 2 General Migrant. We can prepare and submit your indefinite leave to remain (ILR) application to the Home Office, PEO, Croydon and get quick decision on your application. As the ILR application is a biometric application, therefore you will have to attend the Home Office along with our legal representative in order to enrol your biometrics. Our legal representative can accompany you to the Home Office, PEO, Croydon and assist you with an enrollment of your biometrics and submission of your application. The application submitted through our same day visa service is either decided the same day or very next working day.

To apply under any of these categories, they would need to meet the guidance set out. This arrangement is not under the Immigration Rules. From 6 April 2016 most Tier 2 visa immigrants from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) must be earning £35,000 or more to qualify for UK indefinite leave to remain (also known as a permanent residence), says the Home Office. Theresa May said the new rules will help to reduce the number of non-European Union/EEA nationals and their dependants that are granted permanent residence each year from 60,000 to 20,000.

The changes will be introduced for indefinite leave to remain applications under the Tier 2 (General) visa category, and the Tier 2 (Minister of Religion) and Tier 2 (Sportsperson) visa categories. The new rules effectively make it more difficult for many people to qualify for UK settlement (another term for indefinite leave to remain), most obviously those earning less than £35,000 a year.

New immigration rules for Tier 2 visa migrants

The new pay threshold will be applicable to persons wishing to stay in the UK permanently (indefinite leave to remain) after five years of employment. Those who do not meet the new minimum income threshold will need to find some other way in which to stay in the UK or extend their Tier 2 visa by another year and then leave after a total of six years in the UK.

Exemptions from the £35,000 salary requirement

The £35,000 earning requirement will not apply to anyone in an occupation on the shortage occupation list and to scientists and researchers in PhD-level occupations.
