PBS dependent - How soon can we apply?

Post by rohitys » Mon Jul 09, 2018 2:50 pm

Hi all,

My wife was granted a PBS dependent (I was on Tier 1 General) visa in 2015 for a year and we later extended that which now expires in 2019 (she was granted an extension for 3 years)

By 2019 she would have completed four years. She needs another extension but I have two questions

1. When we apply for an extension now how many years would she be granted a visa for? Would it be only a further one year so as to allow her to complete 5 years and apply for an ILR?
2. How soon can we apply for this extension? Her visa expires in Feb 2019 should we wait till Jan 2019 or can we do it much earlier i.e. at some point towards the end of this year?

Thanks,
Rohit

1. It will be a 3 year extension as stated in the Immigration Rules.

2. Anytime but ideally Dec/Jan probably.

PBS Dependant extension query

Post by rohitys » Sat Nov 03, 2018 1:32 pm

Hi all,

My wife is currently on PBS Dependant visa which is due to expire in Feb 2019 at which point she completes 4 years in the UK. I am now a British Citizen and received my passport last month and got my ILR based on Tier 1 General 5 years residence route.

We are now in the process of applying for her second extension. In order to keep her ILR qualifying residence in tact am I right in thinking that we continue to extend her visa on the PBS dependant route even though I am a British citizen now?

Thanks,
Ro

The advice has not changed since you asked the question previously.

Thanks CR001

I wasn't a British citizen when I initially posted the query which is why I was hoping to clarify

Makes no difference. She is still able to extend her current visa.

I'm in the process of filling out the PBS dependant online form for my wife and I have a query (screenshot provided here https://imgur.com/a/ltqaoW7)

As i am a british citizen now I've selected Tier 1 general as the category I was last granted leave under after which I'm asked to enter the BRP number, although I know the BRP number I have returned it after my naturalisation

Do I still proceed with entering my BRP number
or
Do I choose I do not have a HO reference number

I think you should answer know as you have surrendered the tier 1 BRP. I am not 100% sure. May be seniors could clarify
