Your status: Settled vs Pre-settled
If your application is successful, you’ll be given either settled or pre-settled status.
If you receive settled status (also known as indefinite leave to remain) this means there is no time limit on how long you can stay in the UK. If you receive pre-settled status (also known as limited leave to remain) this means you can stay in the UK for a period of five years. This will allow you to remain in the UK until you are eligible for settled status, generally, once you have lived continuously in the UK for five years. If you have been granted pre-settled status, it will be free when you apply for settled status after the UK leaves the EU.
