ILR-PBS

      – ILR – PBS 

If you are in the UK or if you are outside of the UK planning to come to the UK under one of the categories of Point Based System commonly referred to as PBS, you will be granted Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in most of the categories under this route generally after 5 years of completion of stay in the UK under this route.

If you are granted ILR or settlement, there will be no immigration control over you. That means when you come to the UK, there is no restriction on you from the UK Border Agency. You will be able to access public funds and other facilities and opportunities like any other British citizen. You can also apply for British citizenship after at least one year of stay in the UK on ILR.

Generally when you apply for any of the categories of PBS, you will generally be granted 3 years of entry clearance or leave to remain. After that, you will again be granted 2 years leave to remain. Upon completion of 2 years of leave to remain, you will be eligible to apply for ILR.

You need to meet the continuous residence requirement by showing that you have not been absent from the UK for more than 180 days in any 12 months period. After 11 January 2018, calculation for absence is now on rolling basis rather than previous system where it was any 12 months starting backward from the date of application.

If you have any dependent family members who have come with you to the UK at the same time as you, they will also be eligible to apply for ILR. If they have come at a later time,  they will be eligible to apply for ILR when they complete 5 years. They will continue to be on leave to remain as PBS-dependent for as long as it is required to take them to complete 5 years.

Application fee for ILR under PBS route is same as other ILR application which is currently £2389. You can apply for faster service known as Super Premium Service by paying £800. You will get the decision by the end of the next day.
