Default ILR (M) online application question help plzi

Hi,

I am filling out the online application for ILR (M), this question is confusing me, IF i tick no and dont put nothing in the explantion box will that make an effect on the application form?


"Are you part of any social groups or do you have other cultural ties in your country of birth, nationality or any other country where you have lived for more than 5 years? (Required)
This could include social networks or connections to any of these countries
Yes
No
Explain why not
This could include reasons you or your family would not be able to integrate into any of these countries"



I havent been part of any social groups & I have no other cultural ties to my home country I have ticked No, and then it says "explain why not" do I have to put an explantion in this or can I leave it blank please someone help thanks sooo much in advance!!!

Hi ,

If you put no - then you will have to explain . It is very rare for foreigners to have no social or cultural ties back home. In a scenario like yours, you will have to explain .

Do you have any family or friends in your country of birth? There would tend to be an expectation that you at least have some family there. If you don't, then say you don't.

As long as you have family there, is enough to suggest that you have cultural ties with your birth country . You do travel back home for social visits , wedding, relatives, etc ?

You should just our yes and continue . It’s pretty straightforward

Default ILR (M) online app questions help

Hi,

this question is confusing me if someone could help me out im filling out the online application,

the question is as follows

Did you meet the knowledge of English requirement as part of an indefinite leave application made on or after 28 October 2013? (Required)
Applicants who applied for, and obtained, settlement on or after the 28th October 2013 using an English language qualification at level B1 or above can use this as evidence of their knowledge of English language. However if this qualification was not used and accepted for their settlement application, it cannot be used for this application.



the one in bold at the end is confusing me could someone please clarify thanks in advance!!

Unique999, Did you apply for and obtain settlement on or after the 28th October 2013?

Yes or No?

And if so, did you use an English language qualification at level B1?

If not, then the last part doesn't apply to you.
