Spouse visa Extension

Post by sahidpatel22 » Wed Apr 22, 2020 3:04 pm

Hi All,

Hope all okay and keeping well and safe

Seeking advice regarding My Wife Spouse visa extension application

My Wife Current Situation:
Visa Expiry date : 15/07/2020
Visa Type : Dependant of Tier 2 Visa holder

Main Visa holder (My Self) Current Situation :
Had Tier 2 Visa up and till 11th September 2019
From 11th Sep 2019 I got Indefinite Leave to remain on 5 years bases
Yet to apply for british citizenship/passport as i have to wait 12 months after my Indefinite

Baby Born in UK on 12/06/19 he only have birth certificate not applied for any passport yet. As he will be qualify for british passport once i got british citizenship/passport

Question 1 : Visa Type
If We apply for extension she has to apply as spouse/family visa not dependent anymore. Am I correct ?

Question 2 : Finance
We both working so we fulfill the criteria of 18600.00 income. but do we need to show extra 3800 for our first child. ?

Question 3: Details of Children
As we only have birth certificate for baby. if application ask to provide nationality then what shall i write in that details ? british ?

Wish for the best and pray to keeping well in this unforeseen circumstances .

Stay Safe

Your spouse does not hold a 'Spouse visa'. Tier 2 Dependent visa is a different visa category to a spouse visa.
Baby Born in UK on 12/06/19 he only have birth certificate not applied for any passport yet. As he will be qualify for british passport once i got british citizenship/passport
A UK born chidl is entitled to register as British once EITHER parent is granted ILR. There is no need to wait till you apply for citizenship. Note the child is NOT yet British so cannot apply for a British Passport. You must register the chidl as British first on form MN1.
Question 1 : Visa Type
If We apply for extension she has to apply as spouse/family visa not dependent anymore. Am I correct ?
You apply for a PBS Dependent visa extension. It will be a 3 year extension. If you switch to FLR(M) spouse visa, it resets the clock to zero for ILR and a new 5 year period (2 x 2.5 year visas) before ILR can be applied for.
Question 2 : Finance
We both working so we fulfill the criteria of 18600.00 income. but do we need to show extra 3800 for our first child. ?
There is NO minimum income requirement for a tier 2 dependent visa extension. You need to prove £630 maintenance funds for 90 days.
Question 3: Details of Children
As we only have birth certificate for baby. if application ask to provide nationality then what shall i write in that details ? british ?
Your child is NOT British.

Thank you so much for your prompt response.

Confusion is Am I still be able to apply as PBS Dependant even tho i have been granted ILR ?

Regarding my child one of my friend advice that you don't have to do MN1 form once I will apply and get british passport for my self. my child will be able to apply for british passport straight away. been advised to wait until i get my british passport so it will easy for me to apply for first child british passport straight away rather than go thru MN1 form ?

Yes, the rules allow it if you got ilr based on tier 2.

Why are you listening to people who don't know what they are talking about!! Your child was born before you got ilr and is therefore NOT British. Only a British citizen can apply for a British passport. You becoming British makes absolutely no difference to this and doesn't suddenly make your child British because you are British. Your British citizenship isn't applied retrospectively to your children. You have to do MN1 first, there is no shortcut.

Thanks for your guidance on this route.

One more question reading this application. If she apply to extend her visa on Tier 2 PBS Dependent, does she needs to have a maintenance of £630 in her bank account or is it okay if I (sponsor with ILR) have it in my bank account.

Either of your bank accounts must have held £630 maintenance funds for a minimum of 90 days.

Yes, there is only one form for your dependent, provided you got ILR based on 5 years Tier 2.
