Hi My dependent parents have been issued INDEFINITE LEAVE

Resolved Question:

Hi
My dependent parents have been issued INDEFINITE LEAVE TO ENTER THE UK and it’s been mentioned the visa expiration date as 28/01/2016
VISA TYPE: VISA SETTLEMENT TO JOIN/ACC CHILD XXXX

1)WHAT IS THE RULES AND REGULATIONS PERTAINING TO THIS VISA ? Do we have any detail information document in any website for their period of stay they must adhere?

2) Minimum stays required in UK? If so, does it require a continuous stay –then how long? Can they break the stay between the periods for holiday visit.If so, what period they are allowed to stay outside and come in so that their ILE should not be affected.

3)HOW LONG THEY SHOULD BE IN UK TO BECOME A CITIZEN ?

4) In this visa, are they ELIGIBLE to Access NHS? What other benefits they can eligible for? Please let us know what they are not eligible as well.

5) Does this type of visa require any renewal?

It would be grateful, if you can clear up these important points for us.

Thanks

Hello,

To answer your queries:

1. This is a settlement visa and as soon as they enter the UK, they will be deemed to have indefinite leave to remain in the UK and can pretty much do anything in the UK e.g. Work, study etc. they are free from immigration restrictions.

2 as long as they are not outside the UK for 2 years or more, they will retain their Settled status. Short holidays abroad are fine and I suggest less than 90 days per year if they wish to apply for citizenship

3 5 years

4 they are free to access the NHS for free and draw any benefits that they are eligible for, there is no restriction

5 no renewal required. When they get a new passport, they can carry old and new passports together.

All the best

Yes, they should come to the UK before the expiry date, once they enter the UK before the expiry date, it will be irrelevant.
