    Services we Provide

    A non-EEA dependent child of a British Citizen or a person with settled status can enter and remain in the UK using a Dependent Child Visa UK.

    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.

    We offer immigration advice sessions as face to face appointments at all of our UK offices, or via the phone.

    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 that support it. With IAS, your chances of being granted a Dependent Child Visa UK will be maximised.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    To be eligible for a Dependent Child Visa, you must be able to demonstrate that:

    • You are under 18
    • You are not leading an independent life
    • You are not married or in a civil partnership
    • You have not formed an independent family unit while in the UK.

    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:

    • You are not on another Visitor Visa or on temporary admission
    • Your permission to stay was not given for a period of fewer than six months (unless as a fiancé(e) or proposed civil partner) (and)
    • You are not in breach of the Immigration Rules (overstaying for less than 28 days will not be taken into account).

    As it currently stands, there is no English Language requirement for children entering on a Dependent Visa UK. However, if they become a British Citizen through Naturalisation, they will need to pass an English Language Test.
