7 July 2020
The Home Office publishes data on grants of settlement, by initial visa category, in the annual ‘Migrant Journey’ (https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/migrant-journey-2019-report) release.
Data on grants of settlement in 2019 for those who originally entered the UK on a study visa are published in table MJ_D02 of the Migrant Journey detailed datasets (https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/migrant-journey-2019-report). The latest data relate to the year 2019.
The Home Office also publishes data on grants of settlement and grants of limited leave to remain (extensions) in the ‘Immigration Statistics Quarterly Release’ (https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release).
Data on grants of settlement under the long-term residency rules are published in table se_03 of the settlement data tables (https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/managed-migration-datasets). The latest data relate to the year 2018. It is not possible to identify the original route of entry from these data.
Data on grants of limited leave to remain are published in the Extensions detailed dataset (https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/managed-migration-datasets). It is not possible to identify the original route of entry, or whether applications were made under the long-term residency rule, from these data.
Information on how to use the datasets can be found in the ‘Notes’ page of the workbooks.
Information on future Home Office statistical release dates can be found in the ‘Research and statistics calendar’ (https://www.gov.uk/search/research-and-statistics?keywords=immigration&content_store_document_type=upcoming_statistics&organisations%5B%5D=home-office&order=relevance).
