A person who cannot meet the criteria of the Immigration Rules as set out under Appendix FM and paragraph 276ADE of the Immigration Rules can still qualify for Discretionary Leave to Remain outside the Immigration Rules. For the application for Discretionary Leave to Remain outside the Rules to succeed, the circumstances of the applicant must be exceptional, compelling and compassionate for the Secretary of State for the Home Department to exercise discretion in favour of the applicant. Some applicants may be able to meet such high threshold through strong arguments involving best interests of any children of the applicant.

An application for Discretionary Leave outside the Immigration Rules is made using application form FLR (HRO). If application for Discretionary Leave is successful, you will be granted an initial leave to remain for 30 months under the 10 years route to settlement.
