Updates to the Long Residence Rules

The definition of “lawful residence” for the purpose of settlement on the basis of 10 years long residence was modified in April 2023 to exclude periods spent under immigration bail, as a visitor, short-term student, or seasonal worker. The new changes will explicitly state that this exclusion encompasses periods spent under previous versions of immigration bail (temporary admission and temporary release) and earlier visitor, short-term student visa, or seasonal worker routes.
