What is a Dependent visa?

Dependent refers to people who are not earning themselves and are somewhat reliant on their family. The dependent visa allows an individual to accompany their partner with them. A dependent can be anyone, such as an international student, scholar, Spouse, husband, or civil partner, even children aged less than 18 years.

An essential requirement of the dependent visa is that the family should have enough funds to support themselves without relying on public funds.

With a dependant visa, the dependent can:

  • Stay with the primary applicant/family.
  • Travel and explore
  • Study in an educational institution (in some cases)
  • Work

Types of Dependent Visa:

There are two types of dependent visa:

  • Temporary: This visa allows the spouse or other dependant to work in a limited capacity.
  • Permanent: This visa enables the dependant to work independently and become a permanent resident.

What is a dependent certificate?

This certificate establishes the dependency status of the individual. The dependency certificate is provided to citizens by the government, confirming that they are dependents.

If an individual gets a dependent certificate, they can only apply for a dependent visa in a country where the family’s principal applicant lives.   

Different types of Dependency:

The Dependency can be based on:

  • Husband, wife, or Civil Partner (Spouses)
  • Family Dependency
  • Children less than 18 years

Leaders in the Dependency Visa

Leaders, or can be referred to as principal applicants, are the individuals who are qualified for a UK visa based on work or study in the UK. Top applicants can sponsor their dependent (if they pass the eligibility criteria) members to apply for a dependent visa. The dependent visa will allow them to join the principal family applicant and allow them to reside in the UK.

Duration of stay under Dependency visa

The stay of the dependent visa always depends on the stay of the sponsor. For example, if a child is applying, their sponsorship visa duration will rely on the parent’s different visa lengths. Similarly, the same procedure is involved with all other dependency visas. 

A skilled worker is granted indefinite leave to remain their dependent partner and can apply for ILR. If the dependent partner doesn’t qualify for ILR simultaneously, they can apply for an extension of the dependant visa through the dependent visa route.
