Indefinite Leave to Remain as a Bereaved Partner


Indefinite Leave to Remain as a Bereaved Partner

You can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) as a bereaved partner if your British Citizen - settled partner dies whilst you are in the UK on spouse - partner visa. You can apply for ILR as a bereaved partner any time after your partner’s death. You do not have to wait until your current spouse - partner visa expires. You must be in the UK when you apply for ILR as a bereaved partner. Section BPILR of Appendix FM makes provision for spouses, civil partner, unmarried partners, same sex partners who are bereaved during the probationary period to be granted indefinite leave to remain (ILR) in the UK, provided that the relationship was subsisting and that they intended to live together permanently in the UK at the time of the sponsor's death.

Family members of British Citizens - Settled persons and family members of persons with limited leave to remain in the UK can apply for family visas to stay with their sponsor - family members in the UK.
