According to our UK Visa consultants in Bangalore, one of the most important requirements for entering the UK as a family member of a Points Based System Visa holder is to be able to support yourself financially for the entire duration of your stay in the UK without needing assistance from public funds. If you are unable to support yourself you could face severe hardship because you will not have access to most of the state benefits.
There are several other requirements to meet for the PBS dependents visa depending on the visa category of the main applicant. In this article, let’s have a look at the requirements for the dependents of a Tier 1 Visa holder.
Family members of Tier 1 (General), Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) and Tier 1 (Post Study Work) visa holders:
If the Tier 1 visa holder is outside the United Kingdom or has been present in the United Kingdom for less than 12 months, they must show that they, the Tier 1 Migrant, or (in case of children) the child’s other parent have at least £1890 to support the applicant. This amount must be in addition to the fund requirement the Tier 1 Migrant must evidence to support themselves.
If the Tier 1 Visa holder has been in the United Kingdom for 12 months or more, the dependent must have £630 to support themselves.
Family members of Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) migrants
The Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Dependents visa have slight differences in their requirements, according to our UK Visa consultants in Bangalore. If the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Visa holder is outside the United Kingdom or has been present in the United Kingdom for less than 12 months, the dependent must have £1260 to support themselves.
If the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Visa holder has been in the United Kingdom for 12 months or more, then the dependent must have £630 to support themselves.
This requirement can be met by either having savings of £1260 or £630 where the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Visa holder has been in the United Kingdom for 12 months or more, which must have been held for at least ninety consecutive days prior to the date of application; or by providing an endorsement letter from the United Kingdom Trade and Investment (UKTI) organization confirming that it has awarded funding that is adequate to cover the required funds for the main applicant, the dependent applying and any other PBS Dependants.
