A dependant of sole representative is his/her:

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

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

Following changes in the Immigration Rules implemented from 1 October 2013, it is now possible to switch into dependant visa of Sole Representative 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 with Temporary Admission in the UK can switch into Dependant visa as a dependant of Sole Representative from inside the UK.

In order to apply for leave to remain as the child of a Sole Representative, 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 Sole Representative or someone applying at the same time for leave as a Sole Representative.
