Confused - What dependent visa should I apply ?

Post by samkumar2018 » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:13 pm

Dear forum members,
Many thanks in advance for your replies for my queries.

Summary:
I am in ILR now ( Tier -1 PBS route extended twice and based on 6 years stay ) .
My wife initially joined me during Mar 2012 and stayed till Aug 2012 and left UK due to personal circumstances. Then again I applied PBS dependent visa for my wife and my son during march 2015.
so Again she entered UK and now for the last close to 3 years she is in UK ( along with my son) .

My question is : What type of Visa I should apply for her stay extension.
- As I am in ILR do i need to apply dependent ILR visa for my wife and son ( in that case, will their clock starts newly)?
- Do I need to apply PBS dependent Visa ? ( if so, could you please share the application link etc as I am confused with GOV website:().
_ is there something like ILF(M) visa etc. to be applied?
- how long HO will grant their visa ( in 2015 they were given 3 years until my tier 1 validity)
- Will they be eligible for ILR by any chance if they continue their stay for 2 more years ( to make in total 5)
- Do i need to pay health surcharge fees though they are applying second time extension etc?

Lastly , as my wife's intial entry is before April 2012, can she apply ILR ( based on 2 years rule) - inspite of she took break for more years and came back only on May 2015.

I am really indebted to thank you for your valuable inputs.

Sam

FLR((M) will reset the clock.
- Do I need to apply PBS dependent Visa ? ( if so, could you please share the application link etc as I am confused with GOV website:().
Yes. See link below, the rules permit PBS extension provided you got ILR base on 5 years PBS route.

_ is there something like ILF(M) visa etc. to be applied?
No, there is no such form. It is FLR(M) which will reset the clock to zero and a new 5 year route (2 x 2.5 year visas) before they will qualify for ILR.
- how long HO will grant their visa ( in 2015 they were given 3 years until my tier 1 validity)

PBS Dependent extension will be for 3 years.
- Will they be eligible for ILR by any chance if they continue their stay for 2 more years ( to make in total 5)
Once they have 5 years residence they can apply for ILR.
- Do i need to pay health surcharge fees though they are applying second time extension etc?
Yes, £600 per applicant.
Lastly , as my wife's intial entry is before April 2012, can she apply ILR ( based on 2 years rule) - inspite of she took break for more years and came back only on May 2015.
No she cannot as she applied for a new entry clearance in 2015 which put her on the new 5 year route.
