Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa - Dependent ILR

Post by netmet » Fri Aug 30, 2019 4:21 pm

Hi,

I'll appericiate some help on following queries:

Context: I am currently on Tier 2 ICT visa since jun 2015 (End date on 21 sep 2019) with my depedents. Recently i received Tier 1 ET stage 1 endorsment. I'll be applying for Tier 1 ET 2nd stage along with my dependents application.

Questions:

1. I understand that as a main applicant i can apply for ILR post 3 years (by some time year 2022); however my dependents needs to wait until 5 year (by some time year 2024). So the question is can i apply indiviually for ILR post 3 year completion ? if yes, how my dependents Tier 1 ET dependant status is handled? do that continue to be on dependent visa ? if not, do i also need to wait for 5 year to apply together ?

2. Second questions is on ILR qualified duration. For example, if i switch to Tier 1 ET visa within country (UK) 1 month before my Tier 2 ICT expire (for 5 year duration), how the 5 years calculated from the date i received my decision on Tier 1 ET visa or from the Expiery of Tier 2 ICT visa ?

Thanks in advacne

1. Dependents can stay on their current visa until they qualify for ilr if you ilr based on tier 1. No need to change their visa category. They need 5 years pbs dependent residence to qualify for ilr.

2. It starts counting from tier 1 issue date.

Thanks for a swift reply!!

Just to clarify..so If i get the ILR in 3 years, my dependents continue to be on Tier 1 PBS ET dependent visa untill 5 years ?

Considering above scenario, When we apply for Tier 1 ET visa (Stage 2) can i apply for 3 years validity & for them 5 years validity ? is it possible doing this all applications together or do we need to do seperate application. i.e. 3 years application for myself & then 5 years for them.

This will allow to save some cost on IHS fees :)

Cheers

Not possible. A PBS dependent will get a visa in line with your visa expiry date, regardless of applying together or separately for dependents.

ah in this case we all have to apply for 5 years visa for my dependents to be eligible for ILR.

So overall i need to pay for 5 years IHS although i can get the ILR for myself in 3 years ..hmmm..damn :x

Anyways thanks for clarification!!

Or you simply apply for 3 years for all of you and then extend their PBS Dependent visas once you have ILR. They will apply and get a 3 year extension.

Yup ..thats the other option i thought ..but in that case the overall cost would be more as need to pay there visa fees again (£608 x 2).
