The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
A non-EEA dependent child of a British Citizen or a person with settled status can enter and remain in the UK using a UK Dependent Child Visa.
As long as the child is eligible for a Dependent Child Visa, they will be granted Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in the UK. The child can usually apply for British Naturalisation once they have lived in the UK for a continuous five years.
At IAS, we understand the importance of being close to family and we want to help you be close to yours. Our team of dedicated lawyers can help you secure your UK Dependent Child Visa. One of our lawyers will spend an untimed session working with you to assess you/your child’s eligibility. We will perform a thorough document check for both you and your child and ensure that your application form is completed properly. Your lawyer will also create a Letter of Representation to accompany the application which will discuss the positives of your case and cite UK immigration regulations which support it. With IAS, your chances of being granted a Dependent Child Visa will be maximised. Contact us now to speak personally about your circumstances with one of our immigration lawyers.
To be eligible for a Dependent Child Visa, you must be able to demonstrate that:
There are several additional requirements with even more for adopted children.
Yes, as the parent of a child who is a British Citizen or settled in the UK, you can apply for permission to enter or stay here. You will need to show that you have sole responsibility for the child, or at the very least access rights. You must also show that you can maintain yourself without relying on public funds. If you meet all the requirements you will be granted temporary permission to remain in the UK for 30 months. You will be eligible to stay for a further 30 months if you continue to meet the requirements. After five years you can apply for ILR.
If you are outside the UK you must obtain your visa before travelling. If you are already in the UK you will be eligible provided:
