Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
It needs to be paid yes.1. We didn't have to pay any health surcharge for my daughter when she applied from India. The health surcharge calculator says that we dont have to pay anything for her either: https://www.immigration-health-surcharg ... ecker/type. However, now that I am completing my application - it says I will have to pay £500 for my 4 months old daughter! Is this correct?
You need a new number for each applicant.2. Should we use my daughter's old IHS number in this application or is it 1 new number which we will be allocated after paying £500x3 = £1500? Or can we add 2 different IHS numbers?
No! She is not in the care of the local authority (ie social services).3. There isnt any way to go back and check my answers on online application. What is the answer for "Are you under 18 and under a local authority?". I think the answer for my daughter should be yes - and I think that is what I entered as well!
This is not correct. They do have to pay. From 6 April 2015, the NHS is no longer free to all those who reside legally in the UK. It changed under the Immigration Act 2014.iworker wrote:dont worry, she has nothing to pay

I am on a Tier 2 visa since 15-Jan-2014. My visa expires on 14-Oct-2016. My daughter was born in India in May this year and came to U.K. on 23-Aug-2016 on my dependent visa.

If you showed her IHS number then that means they don't bill. The question is, should you had had an IHS number for her?bsc2007 wrote: Dont know if I have to become an immigration lawyer or something in order to stay in UK. How on earth will I come to know if I have to pay or not! No one in GP informed me about any fees. Is a bill waiting for me somewhere!?
Can you confirm if you are on an ICT visa or General. There is (soon to end) an exemption to pay for the IHS for the ICTs and their dependants, but I don't know if that extends to visas for under 6 months???bsc2007 wrote: The visa saga doesnt seem to be straightforward anytime whatsoever I try and do!
I'm correcting that "4 months" to 3 months and that the mother must be exempt from charges.Petaltop wrote: Under these April 2015 NHS changes, If your wife had a valid visa (such as your dependant) to be in the UK and gave birth in the UK, then your baby would have received 4 months of free NHS, as long as they didn't leave the UK and return. I have put that link on this board before.
