Hi Thank you for your question and patience, I’m Tom and I’ll try to help you.If you have something “indefinite leave to enter/remain” or similar in your passport then there are two options.The first is simply, you staple your old passport to your new passport and when you leave/enter the UK you take both (obviously, since they will be stapled together). This is generally fine.The alternative is to apply to transfer to a Biometric Residence Permit by applying for a “no time limit” stamp. Please refer to the section titled “You have permission to settle (‘indefinite leave to remain’)” on the following link for information in this regard:https://www.gov.uk/transfer-visaIf they transfer to a Biometric Residence Permit then you can take this with your passport to prove your status in the UK. My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question. Kind regards,Tom
