Are you asking about your sister or her child?
What nationality is your sister?
What nationality is her husband?
What is her immigration status in the UK please?
Thanks for your reply.
The daughter would not be entitled to UK citizenship if neither parent was a UK national then she would become eligible for citizenship once she has spent the first ten years.
A person who has been in the UK with a mix of legal leave to remain and being illegally here must be in the UK for a continuous period of 14 years in order to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain. This is not something I could advise aiming for because there is no guanratee that it might not be revised at a later date.
I'm afraid that if no party to the family already has ILR or UK citizenship then it will be very hard to regularise their stay for a long time.
