I am wondering if I can apply for indefinite leave to remain in the UK now and how long will take
Hi, thank you for your question.
In order to qualify for Indefinite Leave to Remain
) on the basis of refugee status or humanitarian protection, an applicant should have held a residence permit (as a person with refugee status or humanitarian protection) for a continuous period of five years in the UK.
Based on the information that you have provided, you will not be eligible to apply for ILR
until you have completed 5 continuous years in May of 2020.
I hope that you have found this helpful, please feel free to get in touch or book a consultation for further information.
