Child of a parent with LTR in the UK

This visa category allows a child to apply for a family visa to live their parent in the UK. If the child is under 18 and born in the UK then he will get the same permission to stay as their parent.

If the child is over 18 and born in the UK then their parent can only include them in their application as a dependant if they comply with the following requirements:

  • enter the UK on a family visa when you were under 18
  • do not live an independent life
  • are applying from inside the UK

If the child is under 18, they must not be married or in a civil partnership and living an independent life. One of their parents must also be applying or have applied for a visa or to extend their permission to stay as a:

  • partner – and the partner is your other parent
  • parent – and they have sole parental responsibility for the child

If the child is over 18, their parent can include them in their application as dependant, or the child can apply separately and they can apply if they:

  • got permission to stay in the UK on a family visa when they were under 18
  • do not live an independent life
