Indefinite leave to remain or permanent residency is an immigration status granted to a person who does not hold the right of abode in the United Kingdom, but who has been admitted to the UK without any time limit on their stay and who is free to take up employment or study. When indefinite leave is granted to persons outside the United Kingdom it is known as indefinite leave to enter.
A person who has indefinite leave to remain, the right of abode or Irish citizenship has settled status if resident in the United Kingdom (all full British citizens have the right of abode).
Indefinite leave is not a permanent status. It can lapse where the holder has stayed outside the United Kingdom for a continuous period of more than two years.
