Indefinite Leave to Remain

Indefinite leave to remain is when one would apply to this Settlement to remain in the UK permanently. When the application is granted, indefinite leave to remain would allow one to reside and be permitted to work in the UK. There are also no time restrictions with indefinite leave to remain along with being eligible to state benefits.

If you are granted an indefinite leave to remain, you would still retain your nationality and are not regarded as a British citizen. You would therefore be restricted from voting in the General Elections. A migrant who is granted an indefinite leave to remain could leave the UK and thereafter return without any restriction in force. However, generally if they were to leave for over two years without returning to the UK, the status of indefinite leave could be lost.
