Will the ILR be affected if the person was legally bound to stay in a foreign country for more than 4 years, under judicial control during a trial, with interdiction to leave that foreign country and return to the UK ?

Public Answer: 

Thank you for your enquiry. 

Indefinite Leave to Remain is likely to be revoked if a migrant spends more than 2 years outside of the UK.

In such a situation, the migrant must apply as a Returning Resident when intendting to return to settle in the UK. At that stage, arguments can be put forward as to why the migrant spent more than 2 years outside of the UK and ILR may be reinstated only at the discretion of the Home Office.

You will need to provide us with more information about the person holding ILR and the reasons why they are being forced to remain outsdie of the UK for the said period for us to provide you with thorough advice. 

Someone will be in touch with you shortly to see how we can help you further.
