Hello

Thank you for your enquiry

The required residence period is 270 days over 3 years period. Although there is no longer a requirement to make the UK your permanent home, you must meet the requirement of good character, English language and knowledge of life in the UK.

HelloSorry for bothering you with all these dates and informations , sorry I just want to understand .
I stayed 18 months outside the Uk while having My first spouse visa 10/2012 - 1/2015 so I couldn't apply for ILR at this time and I applied for a new spouse visa 6/2015 - 3/2018
And from this new date I stayed for 5 weeks out the uk until now as I am now in Egypt and i supposed to come back to London after 1 month, so if there are no problems about the allowed period to stay out the UK I'll come after month .. I want to know when can I apply for ILR .. Can I apply from now as
I stayed in the Uk from 10/2010 to 9/2011 ( 2 connected 6 months family visits ) and stayed 8 months while my first spouse visa 10/2012 - 1/2015
And stayed 10 months while my second and last spouse visa 7/2015 - 5/2016 ( will end at 2018 )
Now you have all my informations about staying in the UK .. What is the solution ? .. Can I apply now for the ILR or when ? I know that I can't take the British citizenship without taking the ILR for 1 year .. Right ? I Need your help, your kindly answer ASAPMany thanks,

The requirement is 3 year continious residence. Continious residence is generally broken for absences of more than 6 months.

I have to wait another 2 years until the end of my spouse visa at 2018 to apply for the ILR , right ?
Then wait 1 year ILR to apply for the citizenship?
