Our UK immigration solicitors can assist you with No time limit (NTL) application for confirmation of your status in the form of a biometric residence permit (BRP).

The No time limit (NTL) application is for those who have Indefinite leave to remain (ILR) or Indefinite leave to enter (ILE) but do not have a document to prove it. You can make a no time limit (NTL) application for confirmation of your status in the form of a biometric residence permit (BRP). You can also use the UKCVAS Super Priority service to get a decision within 24 hours on your NTL application.

Eligibility criteria for no time limit (NTL) application

A person may apply for NTL where:

  • their passport containing an ILE, ILR or NTL endorsement has been lost, stolen or has expired;
  • they have settled status in the UK but they do not have any documentary evidence confirming this (for example because they were deemed settled in the UK on 1 January 1973 in line with section1(2) of the Immigration Act 1971);
  • they have legitimately changed their identity since being granted indefinite leave and want this confirmed on a BRP.
