Closed petition Make time in the UK on an ICT visa count towards eligibility for ILR
Currently time spent in the UK on an Intra-company (ICT) visa does not count towards eligibility for applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), even if a visa holder has subsequently transferred to a visa that does give entitlements to ILR. We want time on an ICT visa to count towards ILR.
To apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain a person must complete 5 years in the UK certain visa types, but ICT visas do not count towards eligibility for ILR.
If those ICT visa holders who move to another visa complete 5 years in the UK were eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain, this would help more skilled workers stay in the UK permanently, and better contribute to the economy.
