You may apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the United Kingdom if you are related to a person present and settled here under one of the following circumstances:

  • Parent aged 18 or over;
  • Grandparent;
  • Brother of sister over the age of 18 or over; or
  • Son or daughter aged 18 or over of a person ("the sponsor") who is in the UK

If you are the sponsor's parent or grandparent you must not be in a subsisting relationship with a partner unless that partner is also the sponsor's parent or grandparent and is applying for entry clearance at the same time as you.

What are the requirements for a Dependant Relative Visa?

In order to qualify under this category, you must meet the following requirements:

The sponsor must at the date of the application be aged 18 years or over; and be:

  • A British Citizen in the UK; or
  • Present and settled in the UK; or
  • In the UK with refugee leave or humanitarian protection.
  • You or your partner as a result of age, illness or disability requires long-term personal care to perform everyday tasks.

The care you need is not available in the country where you are living, either because it is not available and there is no person in the country where you are living who can reasonably provide it or it is not affordable.

Your sponsor can show that he or she is able to provide adequate maintenance, accommodation and care for you without having to rely on public funds. Your sponsor will need to sign a sponsorship undertaking form to confirm that they will be responsible for your care without relying on public funds for a period of at least 5 years.
