EFIS 33, April 2006 : Immigration - Applications

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

The Immigration and Nationality Directorate of the Home Office has announced a change in the Immigration Rules.

The qualifying period for indefinite leave to remain in the UK will increase from four to five years on 3rd April.

For a limited period, anyone who applies for indefinite leave to remain in these categories on or after 3rd April (having only completed four years' continuous leave) will be invited to change their application to an extension of stay rather than have their application rejected.

These changes have necessitated alterations to the BUS and SET(O) forms.

All forms are available for your immediate use.

Forms affected

SET(O) Application for indefinite leave to remain in the UK in one of the following categories: Work permit holder; Employment not requiring a work permit; Writer, composer or artist; UK Ancestry etc New/Amended
BUS Application for an extension of stay or indefinite leave to remain in the UK in one of the following categories: Business Person, Sole Representative, Retired Person of independent means, Investor, Innovator New/Amended
