A dependant is:

  • your husband, wife or civil partner; or
  • your unmarried or same-sex partner; or
  • your child aged under 18 years old.

Your dependant children can be over 18 years old if they are in the UK now as dependants.

If you are the partner or dependent child under 18 of a migrant who is in or coming to the UK under Tier 1 PSW category, you can apply for a visa to join them in the UK. The Home Office, UKBA will grant leave in line with the expiry date of the Tier 1 PSW Migrant's visa.

Entry Clearance As PBS Dependents Of Tier 1 PSW Migrant

In order to be granted entry clearance as a spouse, civil partner, unmarried or same sex partner, the family member and the main applicant must be aged 18 or over on the date he/she is due to arrive in the United Kingdom.

In order to be granted entry clearance as a child of Tier 1 PSW Migrant, the child must be under the age of 18 on the date of entry clearance application.

Switching Into Dependent Of Tier 1 PSW Migrant

Following changes in the Immigration Rules implemented from 1 October 2013, it is now possible to switch into PBS Dependant of Tier 1 PSW Migrant from inside the UK unless:

  • you were last granted leave to enter or remain as a visitor; or
  • you are on temporary admission or temporary release.

From the above, it is clear that anyone who is not in the UK on a visitor visa or an overstayer in the UK can switch into PBS Dependant of Tier 1 PSW Migrant from inside the UK.

In order to apply for leave to remain as the child of a PBS migrant, the child must be under the age of 18 on the date of application. Where the child is aged 18 or over he/she must have, or have last been granted, leave as the family member of a PBS migrant or someone applying at the same time for leave as a PBS migrant.

Funds For Maintenance

One of the requirements for family members of Points Based System Migrants is that he/she must be able to support themselves without recourse to public funds. This requirement is satisfied by showing funds for maintenance for last 90 days before the date of the application.

If the Tier 1 PSW Migrant has been present in the United Kingdom for less than 12 months, each family member of the Tier 1 PSW Migrant must show that he/she, or (for children) his/her other parent who is also legally present in the United Kingdom has at least £1800 to support him/her; this is in addition to any funds the Tier 1 PSW Migrant needs to prove he/she has enough money to support himself/herself.
