Hello,

It appears that your sister's husband has a "continued right of residence" in the UK as they are still married and your sister continues to be a qualified person by being in full time employment in the UK. As such, if he is still living in the UK, he would qualify for PR automatically as soon as he has completed 5 years residency here.

All the best

But they don't live with each other anymore and he has another wife. Can he apply PR on his own without the assistance of my sister? Your prompt answer is much appreciated
