London, UK (PRUnderground) August 9th, 2022

The United Kingdom has a very long history of immigration as it was ruling many countries around the world including nations like India, Australia and so forth. In the prime period of colonialism, The British were known to be “The Empire on which the sun never sets” which easily shows the vast empire of the British. English families who returned from their colonies had brought people as servants who settled there afterwards. At present, the UK has become a go-to place for work, study and various other purposes as it has various benefits for an outsider. Any nation has its own rules and regulations, one of the most confusing directives of the UK is the difference between PR, ILR & Settled Status, Says Amar Ali – The 2022 ThreeBestRated® award winner for best immigration solicitors, London.

Permanent Residence

Permanent residence shortly PR is a special status given to EU/EEA and Swiss citizens who have resided in the UK for a period of 5 consecutive years or more. They must be studying, working, self-employed or searching for a job during the period. As per the partition of the UK from EU/EEA countries on 31st Jan 2020 — Applications for PR have been closed. Hence people have to opt for the EU Settlement Scheme instead, Even if they are PR holders.

Indefinite Leave To Remain

Indefinite leave to remain (ILR) is another settlement scheme available for both Eu & Non-EU nationals as long as they have been residing in the UK for an eligible period of time with an eligible visa. Not all visas have the privilege of ILR, only selected visas like the Skilled Worker visa allow you to apply for ILR. The period of residence also differs from one visa to another, typically 2 to 5 years minimum. During that period, the applicant should not be outside of the UK for more than 180 days every 12 months.

Other important requirements to be fulfilled for eligibility include,

  • Passing the Life in the UK test.
  • Demonstrating knowledge of the English language.
  • Not breaching any immigration rules.

Settled Status

Settled status is the one of top-most privileges provided only for EU nationals who have been living in the UK before the end of 2020 and have a valid reason for making a late application (after 30th June 2020) that allows an individual to live, work, and remain indefinitely, free of immigration control with access to public funds. It is a free, quick & easy process after being eligible for the status. The process is according to the EU Settlement Scheme which is designed to protect the rights of EU citizens. Your children will automatically be provided with British citizenship once they are availed of settled status. It also allows you to reside outside the UK without time restrictions.

An individual should have a clear view of his eligibility, and the purpose of his application only then he/she should apply according to the need, says Reiss Edwards, the 2022 ThreeBestRated® award winner for best immigration solicitors.
