Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a tier 2 dependant visa and my 2 children are tier 2 dependant as well. We are going to apply indefinite leave to remain. At the moment, I heard of there is a price increase of Immigration Health Surcharge from £400 per year to £624 per year from 1st October 2020. The detail is as below:
https://iasservices.org.uk/immigration- ... 24-09-2020

Due to the rise of Immigration Health Surcharge, does my application fees (along with my children) of indefinite leave to remain will be raised as well?

Thank you for your response.
Topics Merged!!! Keep all your questions in one topic please.

There is NO fee for IHS payable for ILR.

The ILR fees have NOT increases yet. They usually increase in April each year.

There will be no maintenance funds required at ILR stage.

Application Fees(Pay Separately)

Post by ILR-1982 » Sat Sep 26, 2020 10:42 am

Dear Sir/Madam,

I filled up the Set(O) form to applied for indefinite leave to remain for myself alongside with my 2 Children. All of us are under Tier 2 dependant Visa. The total payments are GBP7200++, and I am only able to pay with 2 different credit cards since this is a big chunk of money. Prior to that, I rang home office and I have been informed that I am able to do so. However, when I about to start paying, I do not have any option to make payments separately for different applicants. Perhaps, I missed out something? My questions are as below:

(1) Please could you advise how to pay separately for one ILR application? Is that because of setting issue ? (e.g I should use different email addresses for myself and my children rather than just one email address for all of us?)

(2) Suppose I submit my ILR application, then made payment for myself. I then subsequently submit my 2 children ILR application and made payment. In other words, I made these 2 applications at the same day. Please could you advise if there is any risk? (e.g the home office happen to be firstly processing my 2 children application without knowing that I am applying and lead to rejection?)

Many thanks for your advice.

You all are in one account. I am afraid you will have to make payment with ONE credit/debit card. You can not split the payments unless you have two different accounts and apply separately which is not advisable.

Consent Form

Post by ILR-1982 » Sat Sep 26, 2020 4:34 pm

Many Thanks for your advice. I have submitted the ILR application for myself alongside with 2 children (5 years old and 7 years old). All of us are under Tier 2 dependant visa. After submitting the application, there are consent forms that need to be signed as listed below:

PART 1: Consent for the Home Office to verify application information
PART 2: Consent for the Home Office to verify third party information
PART 3: Consent for the Home Office to verify information from third party sponsor

I have following questions:

(1) My husband (he got ILR under 5-year Tier 2 (general) route) is the bread winner of the family, does he needs to sign the Part 3 form for 3 of us (myself and 2 children) and provide related bank statements? If so, please could you advise how many months and how much money need to be shown?

(2) For my 2 children, each of them I am going to provide:
- Birth Certificate (which includes my name and my husband name)
- Current passort and all previous passports
- NHS registration letter (address proof)
Are these sufficient?

As you know my children are only 5 and 7 years old, how they are going to deal with this Part 1 form? And my husband and I are going to sign the part 2 form right?

(3) For my case, do I just sign part 1 form and my husband sign part 2 form?

You advice is very much appreciated. Thank you.

1) Just ask him to sign part 3 for all of you. No evidence needed.

2) Yes. You sign Part 1 on child’s behalf, Your husband signs Part 2 and Part 3 for them.

3) You sign Part 1, Your husband signs Part 2 and 3 for you.

You would have joint accounts/documents for cohabitation documents and financially dependent on your husband so the above will take care of that.

- Birth Certificate (Indicating myself and my husband are thier parents)
- NHS medical card issued in September 2015 (include our current address)
- My Tier 2 Dependant Biometric Card and My husband's ILR Biometric Card

Would these be sufficient? If not, please could you advise further? Thank you.

Living Together - electoral registration

Post by ILR-1982 » Thu Oct 01, 2020 10:26 pm

Dear Sir/Madam,

At the moment, I am under Tier 2 dependant visa and would like to apply for indefinive leave to remain alongside with my 2 children, where my 2 children are under Tier 2 dependant visa as well. My husband has got his indefinite leave to remain in June 2020 under Tier 2 route. All of us holding Malaysian Passport.

My husband and I received a letter from electoral registration few days ago.
Both letters state that we are both registered as electors since 2016 until today, and both letters are with same address.

May I ask do these 2 letters are useful to be submitted as one of the supporting documents of living together?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you

Yes but not only electoral roll letters will be enough. You need to prove cohabitation for the last 2 years. You need documents from 3/4 different sources evenly spread across last 2 years i.e. every 3/4 months.

UKVCAS - Taking Finger Prints

Post by ILR-1982 » Tue Oct 06, 2020 4:28 pm

Dear Sir/Madam,

As you know, I am applying for indefinite leave to remain under Tier 2 dependant route along with my 2 children, and they are under Tier 2 dependant as well. For your information, I submitted one application for myself alongside with my 2 children. Today, we went to UKVCAS to take a photo and finger prints. For my 2 children, everything went well. When taking my biometric information, the device wasn't able to capture one of my finger prints, where the finger has a tiny cut and the skin is too dry. The officer tried numerous times, everything went well execpt the same finger print cannot be captured. The officer end up with sending all the information to home office, and making a remark that one of my fingers is crack. The officer told me that I might need to come back again. I have following questions:

(1) This is entirely out of my control, please could you tell me how would it affect our application?

(2) Would it be any possibility that the home office putting my application aside and firstly process the application of my 2 children (even though it is just one application)? I am worrying that this will cause direct rejection of my 2 children due to the requirement of both parents got to have ILR beforehand and being granted ILR at the same time with 2 children?

Your reply is very much appreciated. Thank you.

1) No issues as long 8/10 fingers match.

2) It will not affect any of your applications. Relax.
