Tier 1 Dependent Visa

Post by Evicra » Thu Feb 13, 2020 10:42 am

Dear Members .

i am applying for my Spouse Tier 1 Dependent Visa. i got my T1E ILR in September 19. we have 3 kids they already got British passports.

my spouse is going to apply for 10 year route ILR in September 2020. her current visa(T1 E dependent) expiry is 17 April 2020

my question is
1. which is the best and cost effective route to apply , t1e dependent or parent of british child or any other if you suggest please.

2. i think i am in a bit of trouble as guidance says that applicant should have maintenance Funds in their account for at least 90 days while she doesn't have any funds in her accounts . theses maintenance funds are in my account 3300 from last 6 year . i never touched them. would you please guide if its ok or its going to be a problem.
guidance needed please

1. Parent of British child is for those who are NOT in a relationship with the other parent, so not relevant to her. She can extend her Tier 1 dependent visa if you got ILR based on PBS route. If you got ILR based on 10 years long residence, she has no option but to switch to FLR(M) meeting the English and financial requirement. If you don't meet these requirements, she will likely be granted the 10 year FLR(FP) Partner route. You were already advised about extending PBS dependent visa in September last year when you asked. Nothing has changed. indefinite-leave-to-remain/t1-dependent ... l#p1831229

2. The maintenance funds can be in EITHER of your accounts. It does NOT have to be only in her account.

ILR qualification date is 24-08-2020, but she can apply 28 days before that date.

What date did she enter the UK?? Long residence ilr starts counting from date of entry to the UK not the visa issue date.

You need 2 years evidence in both names spread evenly across the period from at least 3 different sources.

You only need two years worth but you should have different sources. So bank statements, driving licence, lease agreement, council tax bill, etc. would all help. You just need to submit 2-3 pieces of evidence for every three months (as an example) during the last two year period - you do not need to submit 24 sets of each.

Admin could you please check the information again because as you said that if any PBS migrant applies ILr on the basis of long residence dependent can not extend their visa as PBS dependent am sorry but this is incorrect. I got my ILR on the basis of long residence when I was in Tier 1 entrepreneur and my dependent got their Visa extended 5 months after my ILR for another 3 years without any issues . Which clearly means that dependents can carry on with their pBS dependent visa and no need to switch it till they qualify for ILR after completing their own qualification period.

1. Please continue in your own topic.

uk-tier-1-entrepreneur-visas/tier-1-ent ... l#p1891325

2. The immigration rules are clear about this and changed in April 2014. It was likely an error in your spouse case if you got ilr on SET LR.

You need to apply online BEFORE the visa expires.

Has this not been done yet?? What exactly are you expecting HO to say when applications can still be submitted online?
