Apply for tier 2 Dependant Visa from Tier 2 Main Applicant

Post by Sholly123 » Sat Jul 14, 2018 1:45 am

Hello Immigration Gurus,

I am on tier 2 Visa but it is expiring in Sept 2018 and my company is not extending my Visa.. My husband is on tier 2 PBS Visa but he has got a job as Civil Engineer and his company is willing to sponsor him.

My questions are:

- Will he be required to fly back to India to apply for his Tier 2 General Visa?
-I am going to switch to his Dependant once he gets his Visa. Do I need to travel to India to get my Visa or I can apply here from the Uk?
-He needs to stay in India for sometime due to his Sister's Marriage, do I have the option to apply for dependant Visa from the Uk before my Husband travels to Uk with his new Visa? I actually want to avoid travel costs if I can apply from Uk before my husband is physically present here in Uk with his new Visa.

Looking forward for some positive answers

thank you

Hello Immigration Gurus,

My questions are:

-I am going to switch to his Dependant once he gets his Visa. Do I need to travel to India to get my Visa or I can apply here from the Uk? You can apply from the UK provided your current visa remain valid. Otherwise, if your husband gets his Tier 2 visa after your current visa expires you have to fly back and apply from India
-He needs to stay in India for sometime due to his Sister's Marriage, do I have the option to apply for dependant Visa from the Uk before my Husband travels to Uk with his new Visa? I actually want to avoid travel costs if I can apply from Uk before my husband is physically present here in Uk with his new Visa. See response 2

Thanks so mcuh Sc2018. What If I apply in Uk before my Visa expire while application of my husband is stil being considered and attach a cover letter to consider my application after considering my Husband’s visa application. I can give reference of his application number in my cover letter and also attach a cover letter from my husband with my application that He wants to sponsor me as a dependant?

You can't. Your husband must have a visa and be back in the UK for you to switch to dependent visa.

If you wish to apply at the same time, you need to apply in home country.

You are not able to apply in country for a PBS Dependent visa if you do now have your partner in the country with a PBS main applicant visa. You either need to apply for entry clearance together or you will need to wait till partner's visa is approved and is back in the UK.
