    Hello again to everyone on this very helpful and informative forum. I hope you are all well. I hope you dont mind me asking this question for a friend of mine. She did ask me but I said that you good people have far more knowledge about these things than I will ever have.
    "Hi Kev,
    Here are the details


    Indian Passport holder
    married to a British citizen
    Lived and worked in the UK for the last 29 years.
    Making NI Contributions for all of the time
    Passport has indefinite stay stamp - which says 'given leave to enter the UK for an indefinite period)


    In the event of being divorced by husband- is the person:


    Allowed to continue living in the UK?
    On what grounds?


    Will they need to change their passport?
    Will they get deported?"
    Again I hope you dont mind me asking, and thanks for any replies
    Regards
    Kev.

    It should say 'Indefinite leave to remain in the UK'.

    However 30 years ago the wording could have been different.
    'Indefinite' means forever, which means even after divorce, they have the right to remain in the UK, based on the grounds of permanent residency.

    No need to change their passport.
    If they renew their passport you can transfer the vignette at a cost.
    Most just keep the old passport and use both the old (with the vignette) and new (without vignette) to travel on.

    Not only can they stay in the UK but they are still entitled to apply for UK Citizenship if they want. If they leave the UK for a continuous period of two years they lose thier right to come back. With UK Citizenship they never lose the right to re-enter UK without a visa.

    Hi Kev Smile.

    My Nephew has the same stamp in his Passport.

    He is now 18 years old but has been in the U K for about four or five years to my knowledge.

    His Mother had Indefinite Leave to Remain in her Passport when they applied for his Visa to come to the U K.

    Steve and Li Li Very HappySmile.
