Default ILR Continuous Residence Calculation

Hi,

I have been in UK for just over 5 years now, continuously.

I am currently on a spouse visa. Before this, I have been on Student Visa (Tier 4), followed by a Work Visa - PSW (Tier 1).

The next visa I apply for - should that be spouse visa extension? Or, am I eligible to apply for ILR?

Thanks

Neither Tier 4 student nor Tier 1 PSW leads to settlement, so you need to have lived in UK for 5 years under spouse leave. So it's FLR(M).

Many thanks Joppa!

Could you please answer another quick one - if someone stays in UK on a Tier 4 Student Visa for 5 or 10 years - could they apply for permanent settlement?

Thanks

Yes, after 10 years, but the rules have changed and the maximum time you can stay on Tier 4 is now 5 years.
