If you are already in the UK as a child under the age of 18 and your parent or parents are either present and settled in the UK or being admitted for settlement at the same time, you can apply for ILR as a child under the age of 18.

Subject to the requirements of Paragraph 298 of the Immigration Rules, indefinite leave to remain in the United Kingdom may be granted to a child under 18 years of age where:

  • both parents are present and settled here; or
  • one parent is present and settled here and the other parent is dead; or
  • one parent is present and settled here and has had sole responsibility for the child's upbringing; or
  • one parent or a relative is present and settled here and there are "serious and compelling family or other considerations" which make the child's exclusion undesirable, and suitable arrangements have been made for the child's care.

For the Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) to be granted to the child under paragraph 298 of the Immigration Rules, the Home Office must be satisfied that:

  • the child is related as claimed;
  • the child is under 18 years of age;
  • the child has leave to enter or remain which was granted to him with a view to settlement in this category; 
  • the child is not married, is not a civil partner or leading an independent life;
  • there is adequate and appropriate maintenance and accommodation for the child provided by the sponsor;
  • does not have one or more unspent convictions.

An application for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) as a child under the age of 18 of a parent or parents present and settled in the UK is made using application form SET (F) and the application can be made through same day visa service.
