having parent(s) claim dependency on you

If you’re looking to bring your parents to the UK to live with you, a UK Parent Visa may be the solution you’re looking for. The visa allows parents of a settled person in the UK to come and live with their children in the country. However, before you start the application process, it’s important to understand the requirements and eligibility criteria for this type of visa.


    • Your parent must be over the age of 18
    • You must be a British citizen or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK
    • You must be able to provide adequate maintenance and accommodation for your parent without requiring public funds
    • You must also meet the financial requirements for the visa


In order to be eligible for a UK Parent Visa, you must be able to demonstrate that your parent is dependent on you for care and support. This may include evidence of their health conditions, age, and financial circumstances. Additionally, you will need to provide evidence of your own financial stability, such as bank statements, salary slips, and proof of employment.


The process for a UK Parent Visa involves submitting an application to the UK Visas and Immigration department, along with all the required supporting documents. This includes the application form, passport photos, and all supporting evidence. You will also need to pay the visa fee and attend an appointment to provide biometric information, such as fingerprints and a digital photo.

Once your application has been received and processed, the UK Visas and Immigration department will make a decision on your application. If your application is successful, you will receive a decision letter and your parent will be able to travel to the UK.

Bringing your parents to the UK can be a complex process, but with the right guidance and support, it can be made much easier. By understanding the requirements and eligibility criteria, you can increase your chances of success and reunite your family in the UK.
