  • • You must have spent 10 years living in the UK both continuously and lawfully ( holding leave to enter, temporary admission or be exempt)
  • • This 10 years cannot be broken by any form of absence including ( either 180 days at a time or 540 days in total)
  • • You must demonstrate sufficient knowledge of English
  • • You must pass the Life in the UK test

Applications are discretionary and given the eligibility requirements are met and acceptance is not contrary to public interest, applications are likely to be accepted/
