Hi,

Quick question about the ILR 10 year long residence settlement. When my current visa expires (Tier 5 Youth Mobility), I will have been legally living in the UK for a little over 10 years (and have spent less than 500 days out of the UK/haven't left the UK for more than 30 consecutive days).

Please find below the previous visas I have held/currently hold.

- Tier 4 (General) Student
- Tier 1 HS Post Study Leave To Remain
- Spouse/Partner Leave To Remain
- Spouse/Partner Leave To Remain Renewed
- Tier 5 Youth Mobility (as a Canadian citizen)

Do all these visas count towards ILR 10 year long residency? And can I apply for this after a Tier 5 Youth Mobility?

Thanks!
Isa

I don't believe Tier 4 student visas count. But I'm confused, if you've had a spousal visa and then it was renewed wouldn't you have been on the 5 year route to ILR?

I was an unmarried partner living with my boyfriend. While we were together for 7 years, I was only on the spousal visa for 4 years, 1 year shy of being able to apply for naturalization.

I thought the Tier 4 counted but the Tier 5 Youth Mobility might not?

Thanks!
