We can help you apply for your tier 2 dependent visa, or help you and your partner apply for your visa’s at the same time.

As a Tier 2 dependent you will be able to live, work and study in the UK for the same duration as your partner, the main tier 2 visa applicant.

Applying for a Tier 2 dependent visa

You can apply for a Tier 2 Dependent visa both from inside the UK and overseas, unless you are currently in the UK on a visitor visa. When you are in the UK on a visitor visa you are expected to leave the country at the end of your visa term.

Applying for a Tier 2 dependent visa can be very complex, as you must meet a large number of requirements, as well as provide proof of your relation to the main applicant.

Dependent visa requirements

As an adult, you can apply for a dependent visa if the main visa holder is your spouse, your civil partner, your unmarried partner or your same-sex partner. You can apply as their dependent if they are either:

  • Already living and working in the UK, or
  • If they are in the process of applying for their Tier 2 visa

That means that you can apply for your Tier 2 dependent visa at the same time your partner applies for their standard tier 2 visa, or after them. But you cannot apply or arrive in the UK before they will.

If you are not married then you will  need to provide evidence that you have been in a relationship equivalent to a marriage for at period of at least two years.

Maintenance requirements

As a tier 2 dependent visa holder you will have to support yourself for the duration of your stay in the UK. You will not have access to public funds. You must meet the minimum financial requirements as part of your visa application.

English language requirements

There are currently no English language requirements for tier 2 dependants.
