Indefinite leave to remain (ILR) or Permanent residency (PR) is an immigration status granted to a person who does not hold the right of abode in the United Kingdom (UK), but who has been admitted to the UK without any time limit on his or her stay and who is free to take up employment or study, without restriction. When indefinite leave is granted to persons outside the United Kingdom it is known as indefinite leave to enter (ILE). With every new government, the immigration laws tend to change and often get more stringent so the conditions and requirements for such an application vary accordingly. Today we will explain the conditions in detail, tackle issues and possible changes post the elections as well as address any queries you may have.
