Do my 2 years on Youth Mobility Count For Residancy?

Hi guys,

I previously stayed in the UK under the Youth Mobility Scheme. I am about to start my application for my global talent visa (digital Fintech). Just curious about whether the two years would count toward my 3 or 5 years needed for permanent settlement.


Time spent on the Youth Mobility Scheme Visa does not count towards the 3 or 5-year ILR route. However, It does count towards the 10-year route to ILR.
