Spouse, Family and Dependant Visas for the UK
If you want to bring your family members to the UK with you then there are a number of ways to do this, depending on your nationality and, if applicable, your UK Visa status.
Family members will usually include your Spouse or Partner and your children under the age of 18. In some cases you can bring your parents to the UK if they are financially dependant on you and require care that cannot be provided in their home country.
Categories of Family Visas
The various categories under which family members can join you in the UK are generally determined by your nationality and your right to be in the UK.
UK Spouse Visa
This visa enables British Citizens to bring their non-EEA Spouse or Partner and children to the UK.
EEA Family Visa
EEA Citizens exercising Treaty Rights in the UK can bring their non-EEA Family members with them.
PBS Dependant Visa
If you are in the UK as a migrant (including Tier 1 Visas, Tier 2 Visas and Tier 4 Student visas) then your family members can often join you in the UK under the PBS Dependant Visa category.
