Tier 2 Work Permit Holder - Dependant Visa for Husband

Post by 2018Wealthy » Thu Mar 08, 2018 2:13 pm

Hello everyone,

I have been on my Tier 2 work permit for 4 and a half years now. At the time of my application, an A-Rated sponsor letter to show that my employer would be responsible for maintenance for myself and my daughter was included.

I am now getting married next month and my husband is in Nigeria. I would be looking for him to join me as soon as we got married and was wondering if another A-rated sponsor maintenance letter from my employer would still be valid and accepted as proof of maintenance/funds for him.

Please advise.

Thank you

That provision is in the Immigration Rules, Appendix E, paragraph (i). It is for all Tier 2 or Tier 5 dependants, not just for children.

Thank you for your response.
To be clear please, are you saying the letter that was issued previously would still be relevant in this case? It is a bit unclear to me as this is another application for a new dependant.

Did you look at that paragraph in Appendix E that I referred you to in my previous answer? Would the letter your daughter used in her application four years ago meet paragraph (i)(3) b i ?

b. ... a letter from the sponsor which includes:
i. the applicant’s name,
ii. the sponsor’s name and logo, and
iii. details of any limit on the level of the undertaking provided.
