Dependent Visas

Most visa categories in the UK allow main applicants to bring their families with them. Different visas will have different requirements and will offer different leave depending on the route. Currently the visas that do allow dependants are: Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 4 (only the regular student version), Tier 5, EEA style visas, Turkish (Ankara agreement) visas.

Each of the above-mentioned visas grant different leave periods. These periods can last anywhere from 12 months to 5 years.

Each visa will be “tied” to the main applicant’s one. In other words, if the main applicant has a visa for 2 years then the dependant will receive the same amount of time. At the end of the visa duration the dependant must change his visa status along with the main applicant, either by extension or settlement.
