Settlement Visas

Would You Like A Family Member Join You In The UK?

If you are settled in the United Kingdom, either by having Indefinite Leave or by being a British Citizen, then you have the right to have your children (as long as they are under 18) or your parents join you. As long as you are able to support them financially by meeting the financial requirement, have suitable accommodation, can prove that you have a your relationship is genuine and they meet the language requirement then we can assist you in making the application for them to join you here.

To qualify for settlement for Children you must satisfy the following requirements:

  • The Child must be under 18
  • The Parent or Parents must be settled in the United Kingdom
  • If only one parent is in the United Kingdom they must have sole responsibility for the child
  • They are not leading an independent life;
  • They are not married or in a civil partnership;
  • They have not formed an independent family unit.

Your children will not be able to settle in the United Kingdom unless both parents are settled in the UK. There only exceptions that UKBA will allow are where;

  • 1 parent is dead and the other is settled or coming to settle here; or
  • the parent who is settled or coming to settle in the UK has had sole responsibility for the child's upbringing or the child normally lives with that parent and not the other parent; or
  • 1 parent is settled or coming to settle in the UK and there are serious reasons why the child must be allowed to come here.
  • The term 'parent' includes the stepfather or stepmother of a child whose father or mother is dead, both parents of an illegitimate child, and an adoptive parent in certain circumstances.

If your child is adopted there are additional rules to those stated above.

Can I Bring My Adopted Child To the United Kingdom?

You can bring your adopted child to the UK if you can show that they:

  • were adopted when both parents lived together abroad or when either parent was settled in the UK; and
  • have the same rights as any of your other children; and
  • were adopted because their original parents could not care for them, and there has been a genuine transfer of parental responsibility;
  • have broken all ties with their original family; and
  • were not adopted just to make it easier to enter the UK.
  • Your child must obtain a visa before they travel to the UK.

You can apply for permission to settle permanently here (known as 'indefinite leave to enter or remain') if you are:

  • aged 18 or over; and
  • a parent, grandparent, brother, sister, son or daughter of a British citizen or person settled in the UK.

You can apply to join a settled person in the UK if: You need long-term personal care to perform everyday tasks, such as washing and cooking.

The care you need is not available in the country where you are living, either because it is not available and there is no person in the country where you are living who can reasonably provide it or it is not affordable.

Your sponsor can show that he or she is able to provide adequate maintenance, accommodation and care for you without having to rely on public funds.
