The full requirements of the new routes are available in the ECAA Annex of the Immigration Rules. The Home Office has announced new immigration rules allowing Turkish nationals staying in the UK either as ECAA businessmen or as ECAA workers, as well as their family members, to apply for permanent residence leave (ILR). In addition to its obligations under the European Communities Association Agreement (ECA), the United Kingdom will provide a tailor-made comparison category to this group of Turkish nationals. Updated Guidelines – Change in wording for the rejection of cases in which retention leave is requested. Announcement added: No new ECAA ILR applications will be accepted on or after March 16, 2018. We also offer a new way for spouses to get another limited leave of stay while getting the 5 years of uninterrupted leave needed to apply for ILR. Some admission requirements will be specific to the new ILR itineraries for people under the ECAA. . . .
