Settlement & Citizenship
Application for Settlement & British Citizenship
Settlement or in other words, Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in the UK is granted for people who have resided in the UK for a specific period of time depending on their visa route. Once you have been granted indefinite stay you can remain in the UK permanently without any time restrictions.
The most common way of becoming a British citizen is through a process called naturalisation.
Becoming a UK citizen means that you can stay in the UK permanently without any immigration restrictions.
Once your British citizenship application is approved you can apply for a UK passport to use it for ID purposes, travelling and to prove your nationality.
