Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) is an immigration status which allows the person who holds it to live and work in the UK for an unlimited time, without any need to apply for a visa extension. It is also called a Permanent Residency Permit.
To get an ILR status, an endorsee will have to remain in the UK for a period of 6 months per year at a minimum. The individual is able to travel throughout the other 6 months of the year. Once ILR status is achieved, you can travel freely, however you should not be outside UK for more than two years in a row or you risk losing your ILR status.
The pathway to British Citizenship requires that the applicant stays in the UK for at least 9 months per year for 5 years prior to the application.
Once you become British citizen, you will be given the same rights as any other UK national, including the ability to vote in all UK elections and to stand for office. A successful applicant will also receive a British passport, and will be able to travel freely. The British passport is the 4th most powerful passport in the world. As a British citizen, you are also able to spend an unrestricted amount of time outside the UK without being subject to immigration restrictions.
The UK government also allows for dual citizenship, so you don’t have to give up your original citizenship.
The initial innovator visa is issued for 3 years and can be extended multiple times for additional 3 years periods.
