If you are looking to leave the UK and settle in a different country on a permanent basis, this is known as emigration from the UK. Emigration is relatively common – there can be many different reasons for wishing to emigrate – for example because of the climate or job prospects in the proposed country.
Emigration law also regulates who can visit the UK, how long they can stay for and it also dictates who can stay here permanently and when a person can claim asylum. There are various criteria that must be satisfied in order to be granted an application and your solicitor can help you through this.
We have put together a selection of pages for you, focusing mainly on the most common emigration destinations but also relating to the importance of the help of a solicitor in your application process. It differs for different countries, and understanding the relevant systems is important.
