Once you have had Indefinite Leave for 9 months, we can assist you in applying for British Nationality.

You are required to invest GBP 2 million within three months.
Length of stay
Your visa will be valid for 3 years and 4 months, or 3 years if you are already in the UK and switching from another category.
Settlement – Indefinite Leave to Remain
You may qualify for settlement once you have remained in the UK for five years. This can be accelerated if certain conditions are met.
You must maintain the required level of investment for the continuous period since making the initial investment.
Continuous Residence: You can now spend up to 180 days (6 months) a year outside the UK and still qualify for settlement/indefinite leave to remain.
We will advise your family members so that they can join you when making the application or if necessary join you in the UK at a later stage.
