Dependency visas can be applied for by spouses,
unmarried couples, children, and many more people who are dependent on a family member who is already a UK Citizen or permanent resident. The general guidelines you can find online give a good idea of eligibility and how to apply but they cannot compare to the specific and bespoke service that our expert solicitors can give.
Coming to the UK to be cared for – you’re an adult dependent relative
You must be dependent on a parent, grandchild, brother, sister, son or daughter who is living permanently in the UK.
You must prove that:
- you need long-term care to do everyday personal and household tasks because of illness, disability or your age;
- the care you need is not available or affordable in the country you live in;
- the person you’ll be joining in the UK will be able to support, accommodate and care for you without claiming public funds for at least 5 years;
- you’re 18 or over.
