No. She has no entitlement to register and requires ILR first.I got my ILR in Nov 2017 and assuming my wife too gets her ILR in say June 2018, can we directly apply for citizenship for my child immediately after?
Apply for ILR when your spouse applies.If not, if I include my child along with my application for British Citizenship in Nov 2018, what will be the status of my child between 'Oct 2018 and Nov 2018' (i.e. her visa expires about a month before I can apply for BC).
No. Children born abroad require ILR first.Can I do a postal ILR application for my child in Oct 2018 and make a request to consider BC directly for her at the time of my application? If they consider this favorably, will I need to pay for both the fees? or will they refund the ILR fees?
Yes. The 5 years is counted from the date of ENTRY to the UK and not visa issue/stamp date.(1) if we can apply for ILR 28 days early for dependents as well ?
No residence requirement for small children.If we have to apply for ILR for child at the same time as my wife, does the child also need to complete 5 years by that time?
You can try but if you are refused (which is likely), you lose the fee and your child will have no valid visa if the PBS Dependent visa has expired. For children born abroad, both parents (and the child) need to be settled (hold ILR)and at least one parent must either be applying for BC or already be BC.(2) Regarding BC for child, can we request for 'discretion' - assuming we get all supporting letters from school etc?
Rules changes on 11th January. Date of visa stamp can be used. uk-tier-1-general-visas/ilr-through-tie ... l#p1583820Does the 5-year period for a tier 2 dependent still counted from the date of entry to the UK?
I read in some recent posts by others that their applications were successful even if they based it on their visa issue date? Is there any official guidance on this?
On a side note, I notice that there are no appointments available for the next 45 days. Is there any specific reason for this?
Why did you not include your daughter with your wife's ILR application??? Children born abroad are expected to hold ILR before applying for citizenship, as already advised on 7th December 2017 @ 12.49pm.Does my daughter still needs to apply for ILR before getting BC?
