Settlement protection route

From August 2005, refugees and those granted humanitarian protection were given five years limited leave to remain (LTR) and that leave is due to expire from August 2010 onwards.

02 August 2010

This means that if you are a refugee or have been granted humanitarian protection and you continue to need protection, you and your dependants must apply for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) before your leave expires.
