Requirements & Guidelines:

Applicants who wish to migrate to the UK often have to arrange a child dependant visa application in order for their dependent child or children to accompany or join them. Broadly speaking, a dependant in the UK is any of the following:


  • Child under 18 years of age.
  • Husband/wife/civil partner.
  • Unmarried/same-sex partner.

The requirements for entry clearance with a child dependant visa under the UK Immigration rules are further divided into the following categories of application:

You also need to prove you:


  • A. Dependent children of a person present and settled in the UK
  • B. Dependent children of a person who has limited leave to remain in the UK
  • C. Dependent children of an EEA national exercising EC Treaty Rights in the UK.

Each category has its unique intricate requirements and burden of proof. There are also, further issues which need to be addressed in situations where children have parents who are separated, divorced and/or share custody of the children. In such situations, the migrant coming to the UK must show they have had ‘sole responsibility’ for the child’s upbringing and such applications often fail owing to sole responsibility not being shown to the Entry Clearance Officer’s satisfaction. So it’s imperative, that all the criteria and law, with legal representation, is applied before submitting the application. Giving it the best chance to succeed.
