Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do You Meet the Requirements of a UK Adult Dependent Visa?

To Qualify for a UK Adult Dependent Relative Visa, You Must Prove:

  • You are the parent aged 18 years or over, grandparent, brother or sister aged 18 years or over, or son or daughter aged 18 years or over of a person who is in the UK and that person is over 18 and either a British citizen settled in the UK, has limited leave to remain in the UK under Appendix EU or is a person with refugee leave or humanitarian protection status.
  • Due to age, illness, or disability, you require long-term personal care (that is help performing everyday tasks, e.g. bathing, dressing, and cooking).
  • You’re unable, even with the financial help of your family in the UK, to obtain the necessary level of care in the country where you are living because it’s unavailable and there is no one (close relative, home-help, housekeeper, nurse, carer, care or nursing home) in your country who can reasonably provide it, or because it is unaffordable.
  • You will be adequately maintained, accommodated, and cared for in the UK by your family, without relying on public funds (if your family member is a British citizen or settled in the UK, they will be required to sign a 5-year agreement to this effect);
  • You can provide a TB test pass certificate if required.

The exact requirements you will need to satisfy will vary depending on your circumstances.
