Details

Use form FLR(DL) if you are already in the UK, to apply online to extend your stay or indefinite leave to remain if you were refused asylum but given ‘discretionary leave outside the rules’ to stay in the UK for a limited period of time.

You should check your eligibility and read the guidance before you apply.

Use the fee waiver application form if you are destitute and can’t pay to extend your stay.

You must apply for the fee waiver before you make your FLR (DL) application to extend your stay. You cannot apply for a fee waiver if you are applying for indefinite leave to remain.
