Dependant Children Visa to join British parents, carer in the UK or Extend your visa

What is a UK Dependent Child Visa?

Children of British Nationals, EU Citizens with settled status or pre-settled status under EU Settlement Scheme or persons with Indefinite Leave to Remain can apply to join their parents or carer in the UK on the basis of their relationship. They can apply for Permanent Residence in UK if one of their parents is British Citizen or have ILR. Children of EU citizens can apply for EU Settlement Scheme. Children from previous relationships (or adopted children) can make an application but a high threshold of evidence is required in terms of parental responsibility.

Applying for Child Visa

You can apply with the parents if they are coming to UK or you can apply individually if parents are already in UK.

Age under 18 or over 18

Different immigration rules apply if age of the child is under 18 or over and they have formed a family by living an independent family life or if they are applying from inside or outside UK and whether they were granted previous leave as a child of someone settled in UK. We only deal with applications where child is under 18 years of age.
