United Kingdom - Family & Partner - Child Dependency Visa (Settlement Visa)
Listen to our RECENT WEBINAR where our two British nationality experts - Philip Gamble and Mishal Patel - discuss the ways in which children under 18 can have rights to British nationality.
This Child Dependency (British Parent or Settled) Visa entitlement arises where a child (including an adopted child or stepchild) is born outside of the UK and one of the parents has settled status in the United Kingdom. For a successful application, the child must be under the age of 18.
SETTLED status is where a person holds British Nationality, Right of Abode or Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). Non-SETTLED status is where a person holds UK Ancestry, Work Authorisation, a Student Visa or any other Temporary UK visa and is subject to Immigration control.
