Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
Yes, it is a 3 years extension and no, you cannot apply for a lesser time limit. The immigration rules Part 8 state that PBS Dependents will get a 3 year extension if applying after the main PBS migrants is granted ILR/BC.So how am I expected to extend the PBS visa? Do I still need to do it for another 3 years or is it possible to extend for a years or is there any other ways to work-around because it would be fee + IHS charges for PBS, then after 6 months I will need to pay for the ILR Again
No it does not count for ILR based on 5 years residence.Meanwhile she is Canadian and she was YMS Tier 5 visa for 2 years before PBS, would this be counted? (I heard it does not).
If you apply and switch to FLR(M) ILR Dependent (it is called a spouse visa not ILR dependent), she will have to stay on that visa category for 5 years, 2 x 2.5 year visas, before she can apply for ILR based on 5 years spouse visa or 10 years long residence if she reaches that first and meets the requirements. To be eligible for citizenship, ILR is mandatory. There are no shortcuts.Alternatively if i opt her for ILR dependent, by end of that 5 years would she still need to apply for ILR on her own and then Naturalization or would she be eligible for naturalization by end of 5 years as ILR dependant?
Correct.So the best option would be apply for PBS dependent as extension -> when reached 5 years or more as a PBS dependent, apply for ILR. ****
Children are Registered as British, Adults are Naturalised. You should ask citizenship questions in the British citizenship sub forum. Current fee for MN1 registration is £1,033.My daughter is born UK and is under dependent visa now. Hope she would be eligible for Naturalization, when I get the ILR. Please could you advise about the route and FEE for this? My daughter is a Canadian too.
There is NO one day service for citizenship. Once you apply you have to wait for approval, it can take a few months, sometime many months. You are only British once you have attended your citizenship ceremony after receiving approval.. Also If I apply BC/ Naturalization how long should I wait to officially become British? or will I be BC on the same day, if I book a one day service?
Highly unlikely.would I be getting the IHS charges refunded for the remaining 2 years (£200*£200 = £400)
You will not get a refund if:
your visa application is successful but you do not come to the UK
you leave the UK before your visa ends, for example to make a new application
you’re told to leave the UK before your visa expires
you’re applying for indefinite leave to remain or changing to another visa
