Applying for your own UK visa can be a complex process. It can be even more so when including children. Brexit has also introduced changes to the immigration system that must be considered when making an application. We explain below how to get a UK dependant visa now, and once the new regulations officially come into effect.

Requirements for a UK dependant visa (Children)

The UK dependant visa allows a child to join their parent(s) in the UK as long as one of the parents is a British citizen, a European Union (EU) national or have gained the right to live and work in the UK.

The exact requirements will depend on which of these categories the parent falls under.

To be considered a “dependant”, your child can’t be over the age of 18. Children who are no longer financially dependent on their parents, are married or have their own family will not qualify no matter their age.

The process becomes more complicated if you are a single parent trying to bring a child to the UK. You will need to prove that you have sole responsibility — not only legal custody — for the child. If this is your situation, we strongly recommend that you seek assistance from an immigration expert.

Once granted a UK dependant visa, your child will gain full right of admission to state schooling and the National Health Service (NHS). However, they won’t be able to seek assistance from public finances, so you will need to show that you have adequate funds to support them.
