An applicant can file Long Residence Application before the Home Office in various ways. At Sindhu Immigration Services, we provide Long Residence Applications for ILR-10 Years Long Residence.


ILR- 10 Years Long Residence

The laws on long residence applications have been introduced to recognize the bond a person might have developed with the United Kingdom by residing in the country for a long period.

If the candidate has been residing in the UK legally for more than 10 years, he/she is eligible to apply for ILR (Indefinite Leave to Remain). Under the 10-year category, the applicant will continue to stay in the UK lawfully.


Requirements for Long Residence

In order to get the permit for indefinite leave, a person will have to meet the below-mentioned criterion:

  • The person should have stayed in the UK for at least 10 years
  • There should not be any issue against the public welfare in the case
  • There should not be any kind of legal cases against the applicant

According to the paragraph 276A of UK’s Immigration Rules, the continuous residence means that a person has stayed in the United Kingdom continuously for a certain period. In some circumstances, the period of staying will not be considered as broken, if the candidate:

  • Stayed outside the UK for six months; or
  • Has no leave to remain or enter the UK
As defined in paragraph 276A, the lawful residence is a period of continuous leaving, in which the candidate should have one of the following:


  • Having leave to visit or remain in the UK
  • Temporary visit under section 11 of the Immigration Act 1971, where leave to enter or remain in the UK has been granted
  • Exemption from the control of immigration department
  • Events that Break Continuous Residence

Authorities will consider it as a break in continuous residence in the cases of:

  • If the applicant is staying outside the UK for more than six months or does not have the permit to re-enter the UK
  • If the applicant has been deported from the country or he/she has left the UK after an unsuccessful leave application

The candidate has Left the UK with no visible chance of re-visiting the country

If the applicant has stayed more than 18 months outside the UK during the 10-year period

Discretion for Breaks in Lawful Residence
