Top reasons permanent residence applications are rejected or refused

Your permanent residence application might be rejected or refused by UK Visas and Immigration if you don’t submit all the required evidence or prove that you meet the requirements. These are the most common reasons that applications are rejected or refused:


  • You haven’t submitted a valid passport or national identity card to prove your nationality and identity.
  • You haven’t submitted evidence to prove you’re a job seeker, worker, self-employed person, self-sufficient person, or student.
  • You haven’t explained any long absences from the UK which break continuity of residence.
  • You haven’t signed application form.
  • You haven’t paid the correct application fee.
