Child Dependency Visa

A Child Dependency Visa allows a child from another country to reunite with their parent living in the UK. While in most cases, both parents should be in the UK with the child, exceptions exist. If only one parent is in the UK, they must demonstrate their sole parental responsibility for the child.

To qualify for a Child Dependency Visa, one of the following conditions must be met:

  • Settled or Applying for Settlement: One of the parents is already settled in the UK or is in the process of applying for settlement.
  • Partner Visa: One of the parents holds a partner visa or is in the process of applying for one.
  • Limited Leave to Remain: At least one parent currently has limited leave to remain in the UK.

Eligibility Requirements

To meet the requirements for a Child Dependency Visa, the applicant must demonstrate the following:

  • Financial Requirements: Show that you have the financial means to support the child during their stay in the UK.
  • Dependent Requirements: Provide evidence that the child is dependent on the parent in the UK, either emotionally or financially.
  • Proof of Relationship: Substantiate the relationship between the child and the parent in the UK through documentation.
  • Suitable Accommodation in the UK: Ensure that you have appropriate and adequate accommodation for the child’s stay in the UK.

Application Process

The application process for the Adult and Child Dependency Visa typically involves the following steps:

  • Eligibility Assessment: Determine whether you meet the eligibility criteria for the visa category, considering the specific requirements for adult and child dependents.
  • Documentation: Compile all necessary documentation to support your application. This may include evidence of your relationship, financial dependency, and any exceptional circumstances.
  • Visa Application: Complete the visa application form online, ensuring that all details are accurate and up-to-date.
  • Biometrics: Attend a biometrics appointment to provide fingerprints and photographs as part of the identity verification process.
  • Decision: After submitting your application, it will undergo processing by UK immigration authorities. The processing time may vary, so it’s advisable to check the expected duration.
