UK RESIDENT VISA
The UK resident visa allows you to live and work in the United Kingdom on conditions close to citizenship. That is why it is so much sought after.
However, you may get a little taken aback with all these “a residence card”, “residence permit”, “indefinite leave to remain”, “UK settlement”, and other terminology that various residency schemes involve.
That is why we are here and provide our services to help you.
Please, contact us if you want to speak to an advisor.
WHAT BENEFITS THE PERMANENT VISA PROVIDES IN THE UK
This UK visa doesn’t just grant long-term residence permit but goes far beyond. To clarify, it avails your greater freedom regarding your living and working in this country. So, let’s see how you can benefit when getting this permit:
— As it provides the indefinite leave to remain, it allows you to live and work in the United Kingdom without any time limitation
— You will get access to education, healthcare, pensions, and other state services and benefits (though some additional requirements may be applied)
— It allows you to work in any business without any restrictions, provided you comply with the law and all regulations for this business
— You can stay abroad (regarding the Kingdom) for up to two or five years, depending on the scheme available to you
— It ensures a ground for your next step to the naturalization as a British citizen.
ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR THE UK RESIDENT VISA
The permanent settlement permit is a desirable target for many immigrants. However, the British government does not grant the settled status automatically to every person who has any valid visa on their hands. Thus, to be eligible for the permanent residency visa in the UK, you must meet at least the following requirements:
1. Have a five-year or a ten-year continuous period of living in Great Britain depending on the scheme (though there could be some exceptions here);
2. Have a valid visa of specified categories and have kept its terms and conditions without any exceptions;
3. Be a qualified person or have the means to live in the country;
4. Have no problems with the law now and in the past.
