Apply for Settlement if you are a Turkish Worker

Apply for settlement if you are a Turkish Worker or Businessperson 

You can apply for indefinite leave to remain (settlement) if you are in the UK on a: 

  • Turkish Worker visa 

  • Turkish Businessperson visa 

Your family members (‘dependants’) can also apply for settlement. 


The application fee is £2,389. 

You also need to pay £19.20 to have your biometric information (fingerprints and a photo) taken. 

If you have family members applying for settlement with you, you will need to pay the £2,389 application fee and the £19.20 biometric information fee for each person. 

If your partner is applying to extend their visa, their fee is £1,033 instead. They will need to pay the healthcare surcharge

How Long you can Stay 

Getting indefinite leave to remain means you can continue to live and work in the UK for as long as you like. It will mean you are eligible: 

  • to take up any job 

  • to run a business 

  • for public services, such as healthcare and schools 

  • for public funds and pensions 

  • for British citizenship, if you meet the requirements
