The route for overseas domestic workers in private households was introduced into the Immigration Rules on 18 September 2002, having previously existed as a concession outside of the Immigration Rules. Under these rules established domestic workers were able to accompany their employer to the UK and receive leave for a maximum of 12 months at a time, becoming eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain when they had completed five years continuous lawful residence. Once in the UK, domestic workers were free to change employers providing that they continued to be employed as a domestic worker and met the other requirements of the route.

Changes made to the Immigration Rules on 6 April 2012 limited entry into this capacity to those established domestic workers accompanying their employer who is on a visit to the UK. As a result of these changes domestic workers applying to enter on or after 6 April 2012 are limited to a maximum six months in the UK and are not permitted to change employer whilst in the UK. Those who entered before the change can still extend their leave and are eligible for ILR after they completed five years, subject to meeting the full requirements of the rules at the time they apply.
