Dependents of Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer migrant
Family members of migrants who are in the UK as Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer visa holder would be allowed to enter the UK as dependents if they are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
A ‘dependant’ is any of the following:
- husband, wife or partner
- child under 18
- child over 18 if they’re currently in the UK as a dependant
Dependants applying from outside the UK
If the dependants meet all the relevant requirement of the dependant visa, then they would be required to apply online. And also would be required to have their fingerprints and photograph (known as ‘biometric information’) taken at a visa application centre as part of their application.
Dependants applying in the UK
In certain cases, the dependants can apply to extend or switch their visas to stay with the migrant if they’re already in the UK. They should apply using the dependant application form.
They can apply at the same time as the primary applicant or at a later date by post, or in person at a premium service centre.
While applying for the dependent visa it is not possible for the applicant to ‘switch’ the visa from within the UK, this means that family members can’t apply in the UK as a dependant if they hold a visitor visa and have entered the country on a visitor visa. The applicants will be required to return to their home country to make a fresh application.
The visa is granted for the same duration as the visa of the main applicant.
