Faqs

UK Visas & Immigration requires the following requirements in order to grant you a Child Visa:

Depending on your circumstances, you may need to satisfy different requirements, so it is strongly advisable to confirm your eligibility in advance of making an application.

If you are the child of a parent or family member who is settled in the UK, you may be eligible to apply for a leave to remain indefinitely in the following circumstances:

  • It is possible for the child to come to the UK to live with both parents and either:
  • Both parents have British citizenship or they have indefinite leave to remain in the country, or they are both being admitted for settlement at the same time; or
  • There is one parent who is a British citizen, or has indefinite leave to remain, and the other parent is applying to come to the UK.

If you are bringing your child to live with only one of your parents in the UK and either:

  • It is either one of the parents is a British citizen or has indefinite leave to remain, and the other parent is dead; or
  • There is one parent who is either a British citizen or who has indefinite leave to remain in the UK, and that parent is solely responsible for raising the child;
  • There is a parent who is a British citizen, or who has indefinite leave to remain in the UK, and there are serious and compelling family or other considerations which make it unpalatable for the child to be expelled from the UK.
  • Children who are going to live with a relative who is not their parent and who is a citizen of Great Britain or has indefinite leave to remain, and where there are serious and compelling family or other reasons why the child should not be excluded from the UK.

In addition, the child must demonstrate that they meet these requirements:

  • Their parents or other relatives are related to them as claimed; and
  • The applicant is under the age of 18 at the time of application; and
  • The couple is not married, in a civil partnership, or living independently; and
  • The child is provided with adequate housing and maintenance, without relying on public funds.

UK Visas & Immigration requires the following requirements in order to grant you an Adult Dependent Relative Visa:

  • The person you are hosting is over 18 years of age and either a British citizen, settled in the UK or has limited leave to remain in the UK under Appendix EU, or is a refugee or humanitarian; you are the parent, grandparent, brother, sister, son or daughter of that person; that person must also be British citizen, settled in the UK or is a refugee or humanitarian.
  • You need long-term personal care for reasons of age, illness, or disability (e.g., help with dressing, washing, or cooking).
  • Although it is possible for your UK family member to provide you with practical support and financial assistance, you are unable to obtain the necessary level of care in your country of residence because it is not available and no one (close relatives, home-help, housekeepers, nurses, carers, care homes or nursing homes) can provide it reasonably, or it is not affordable;
  • The family member will be able to provide you with adequate maintenance, accommodation, and care in the UK, at no cost to the state (if they are British citizens or permanent residents, the family member must sign a five-year undertaking stating that this will be the case).

Depending on your circumstances, you may need to satisfy different requirements, so it is strongly advisable to confirm your eligibility in advance of making an application.

Applicants outside the UK may apply for a Dependent Relative visa for adults. Applicants in the UK cannot switch to this route.

While it is possible for someone applying for an Adult Dependent Relative visa to meet the second criterion in spite of suffering from severe illness, meeting the third criterion is even more challenging. The majority of sponsors who are able to afford to support and accommodate their dependent relative for five years will find it difficult to demonstrate that they cannot afford to take care of their relative back home.

An Adult Dependent Relative visa will allow you to enter the UK and remain there indefinitely.

Medical Expert Support

In the case that you need long-term personal care due to age, illness, or disability, it may be necessary to submit a medical report to support your application. With the assistance of an immigration lawyer, we will assist you in identifying a suitable medical professional and instruct the specialist on the issues to be addressed in their report.

Using a Background Expert

To support your application, you may wish to provide an expert report on the availability of suitable care facilities in your country of residence in order to satisfy the Home Office that you cannot obtain the required level of care. If you need assistance in identifying a country background expert who is suited to your needs, our immigration lawyers can assist you in instructing the expert as to the issues he or she should cover in the report.

Accommodation Report

You must demonstrate adequate accommodation for you in the UK in order to be eligible for an Adult Dependent Relative visa. For support of your application, our lawyers can arrange for a qualified surveyor with expert knowledge and skills to inspect the property and prepare a comprehensive report.

If your application is successful, the Adult Dependent Relative is granted Indefinite Leave to Remain which means permanent residence.
