holding answer 14 December 2009

There have been no recent changes to the Immigration Rules in respect of Nepal. Chapter 15 section 2A of the Immigration Directorate Instructions was updated in June to reflect the Home Secretary's announcement that any Gurkha with more than four years service who had been discharged from the Brigade of Gurkhas before 1 July 1997 would be eligible to apply for settlement in the UK.
