IRL Question - Talent route

Hi everyone,

I received endorsement for the Global Talent Visa today and I have a question in mind regarding ILR (Indefinite Leave to Remain). It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help clarify.


From March 2021 to November 2022

  • I held a Skilled Worker visa from March 2021 to November 2022. My wife was on a Dependent visa.

From November 2022 onwards

  • I switched to a Dependent visa. Subsequently, my wife obtained a Skilled Worker visa

My question is:

  • Will she be eligible for ILR in 3 years if she transitions to a GTV (Global Talent Visa) dependent visa from a Skilled Worker visa?

If you have been in a similarly complex situation and have consulted an immigration lawyer, and if your experience was positive, please let me know. I would be happy to chat with them.

Thank you in advance,

No! She is eligible after 5 years.
