Hi everyone

For those of you who have applied for ILR and been successful using the new online system, did you use some of the supporting documentation more than once to evidence certain things, e.g.

"Evidence of monthly housing costs for the accommodation in the UK where you live or will live"

So I assume things like electric bills, broadband, council tax, etc to evidence this category, but would I also be able to use the SAME documents for the 6/12 items of correspondence?

Many thanks

Yes you can use them for both. We used bank statements to both satisfy the financial requirements and as address/cohabitation proof.

Yes. The the supporting documentation can be used to support multiple evidence. I think I had a total of only 20 documents in total uploaded to the site (covering everything.. passports, life in U.K. pass cert, council tax, etc.) I know thatís less than what others have submitted.

1) Your cohabitation/address proof should cover the period immediately after your were granted FLR to your 5 year anniversary of arrival into the UK minus 28 days.

2)The system has completely changed since your last FLR: it is all done online initially online, then you must attend an in person appointment with a company called Sopra Steria where they will check your downloaded information. There are sticky notes about the new process and threads all over this website.

3) ILR Fees are around £2400 with an option for a 24 hour decision for another £800. Don't shoot me I am only the messenger.

4) No NHS fees for ILR

5) I paid another £125 for an appointment with Sopra Steria because the next available free
appointment at one of the UKVAS Centers was over 30 days out.
Whatshouldwedo and ViLu like this.

I meant to say UK Healthcare Surcharge (IHS), Do I have to pay to apply for ILR?

2. Also, is it better to take B2 English exam rather than B1 for ILR? If I pass B2, will they ask for B1?

3. Do I have to scan Job Letter from Employer as well?
