Gurkhas family can now apply for settlement in the united kingdom (Gurkhas discharged before 1 July 1997 and their family members).

In May 2009, the Home Secretary announced to Parliament that any former Gurkha with more than 4 years’ continuous service who had been discharged from the Brigade of Gurkhas prior to 1 July 1997 would be eligible for settlement in the UK.

This scheme gives exceptional rights to the Gurkhas and their family to get settled in the United Kingdom.
