  • LAWYER RESPONSE ILR stamp on my passport, is that enough?

    I think I have an ILR stamp on my 1973 Portuguese passport.
    I don’t have any other documentation that I have ILR, How do I know if that stamp is valid? I have always lived here never Abroad.
    Help
    Thanks

    In order to make sure you have ILR we will need to see a photo of the stamp, could you please post a photo of it here in this thread (editing out the personal details please) - then I will tag a lawyer to take a look at it.

    Secondly, could you please clarify what do you mean for 'ILR stamp on my passport, is that enough?' - enough to continue to live in the UK lawfully? enough to apply for UK citizenship?

    Many thanks

      Hi
      Thanks for reply.

      I mean is an old ILR stamp on my passport is enough to not have to do the settled status scheme.
      Is there a way of updating the old stamp or getting more documentation to verify I have ILR?

      Basically, I don’t know what options I should choose.

      Please find attached a picture of the ILR stamp on my passport.

      Thanks for your help

        In the meantime, I would like to point out a few differences between old style ILR and Settled Status (ILR), and this is why you might want to consider applying for the settled status nevertheless.

        OLD type ILR Settled status
        Online application
        Based on any 5 year period of residence
        Usually takes from a few hours to a few weeks
        Passport with stamp can be lost and it might become difficult to prove ILR status without the passport Digital status, shared via a link and a code
        ILR lapses after spending two years or longer out of the UK ILR lapses after spending five years or longer out of the UK
        See: How to apply for settled or pre-settled status - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families
