ILR as a Bereaved Partner

If you are in the UK as a partner of a British Citizen or a person present and settled in the UK you may be eligible to apply for settlement (ILR) if your partner has died and you were and intended to continue living together permanently at their time of passing away. A partner under this Rule is a Spouse, Civil Partner, Unmarried Partner living akin to marriage.

It is important to highlight that these Rules do not apply to individuals who were granted entry clearance as a partner of a person with limited leave to remain in the UK i.e. Visa holders. The only exception is where the applicant is a partner of a person with refugee leave or humanitarian protection or EEA Nationals exercising Treaty Rights in the UK. These rules do not apply to those who hold a Fiance Visa or a Proposed Civil Partner Visa.
