UK visa and immigration entry clearance statistics

The UK visa and immigration statistics indicate that every year more than 3 million entry clearance are made from outside the UK. Perhaps, a couple of years ago (i.e. till 2016) the number of entry clearance applications were less than 3 m. In fact, during 2005-16, the number of entry clearance applications hovered in the range of 2.5-2.8 million. Therefore, the applications for UK entry clearance visa are showing an upward trend as the number of entry clearance applications have increased to 3 m and 3.3 m in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

UK visa extensions and leave to remain grants

Indeed, the number of UK visa extensions reached the highest point (267.8K) in 2008. However, since then have been experiencing a downward trajectory. Nevertheless, during the preceding three year period (2016-18), the number of extensions are showing an upward trend. In fact, according to UK immigration statistics, the number of extensions during 2016, 2017 and 2018 are 151K, 163K and 189K, respectively.

Settlement and ILR applications

Quite clearly, settlement and ILR grants reached a 20 year high in 2010, when the total grants increased to 241K. In fact, except for 2010, the number of indefinite leave to remain grants have never even crossed the 200K mark. Nevertheless, in 2009, the number of ILR grants reached a level of 194K. Perhaps, after 2010, the number of settlement grants showed a steady decline. And the level of grants touched the lowest point of 60K in 2016. However, according to the UK immigration statistics, during 2017 and 2018 the number of grants has increased to 65K and 91K.
