I have ILR and my wife have Tier 1 dependent visa and both are working, whether my son eligible for 30 hours childcare in the nursery.
I spoke to one person from HRMC but they both need recourse to the public fund but in the below link it says one should be sufficient, it confusing,
http://www.nrpfnetwork.org.uk/informati ... funds.aspx
"A parent who has leave to remain with the NRPF condition cannot apply for the additional hours of childcare. This means that families will not be able to access this scheme where a single parent or both parents have leave to remain with NRPF.
However, if the parent with NRPF has a partner who is a British citizen, EEA national, or is from outside of the EEA and has recourse to public funds, for example, indefinite leave to remain, then the partner may apply. Both must meet the standard requirements as listed above.
"From September 2017, parents who are working and earning on average at least £120 per week will be able to apply for an additional 570 hours of free childcare each year. Children may also be eligible if a parent is on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or unable to work due to a disability or caring responsibilities. A parent who has leave to remain with the NRPF condition will not be eligible for this additional childcare. However if they have a partner who is entitled to apply and who has recourse to public funds then they may make the application instead
. This is not immediately clear in some of the government information about free childcare but is confirmed in this document setting out eligibility for 30 hours childcare."
Thanks in Advance.
