You can apply for joint indefinite leave with your family if you wish to settle in the UK. You can include children on your application, but adults will probably need to apply separately. You will still have to pay the entire cost for each candidate, though.
The process for requesting a resident permit in the UK is contingent upon your specific situation and kind of visa.
Generally, in order to stay online, you must request for indefinite leave. You must pay the application cost and attach your supporting documentation. After then, you’ll have to wait for a choice. Alternatively, as previously said, you may be able to expedite the process by paying more.
Here’s what it looks like for someone with a skilled worker visa who has lived and worked in the UK for five years, to give you a sense of the procedure:
Using a biometric residency permit (BRP), you can verify your:
Identifying yourself, your right to education, and your entitlement to any public services or benefits
Your BRP cannot be used to verify your eligibility for employment or housing. It will be necessary for you to demonstrate your eligibility for either online employment or online rental.
Typically, a BRP will be issued if you:
if you want to visit the UK for more than six months, apply
prolong your visa for more than six months.
submit an application to live in the UK
change your visa to a new passport and submit an application for specific Home Office travel permits
A BRP does not require a separate application.
What your BRP will contain is:
name, birthplace, and date of birth
Your biometric information consists of your fingerprints and a picture of your face.
your immigration status, any stay restrictions, and your ability to use public resources, such as benefits and healthcare
The rear of your BRP may have your National Insurance (NI) number printed on it. Certain BRPs don’t have this; it all depends on things like when it was issued and whether you have a valid visa.
Should any of the following apply to you, you must apply for an NI number:
you intend to work, claim benefits, apply for a student loan, or make Class 3 voluntary National Insurance contributions; there isn’t one on your BRP; you don’t already have one.
Indefinite Leave To Remain (ILR) is another term for permanent residence in the United Kingdom. You are able to live and work in the UK indefinitely with this. After a year, you can also be eligible to seek for British citizenship.
Depending on your circumstances, there are various ways to apply to live permanently in the UK. You might be eligible to apply for ILR, for instance, if:
You should be eligible to apply for permanent residence in the UK if you have been a resident for five years or longer. However, there are several exceptions. For instance, if you have resided in the UK via a Tier 2 ICT work visa—which is granted to individuals who have relocated from overseas to engage on a designated project at a UK firm branch—you will not be eligible to apply for ILR.
