Dependents Of Tier 2 Minister Of Religion

A dependent is:

  • your husband, wife or civil partner; or

  • your unmarried or same-sex partner; or

  • your child aged under 18 years old.

Your dependent children can be over 18 years old if they are in the UK now as dependants.

If you are the partner or dependent child under 18 of a migrant who is in or coming to the UK under Tier 2 Minister of Religion category, you can apply for a visa to join them in the UK. The Home Office, UKBA will grant leave in line with the expiry date of the Tier 2 Minister of Religion Migrant's visa.

In order to be granted entry clearance as a spouse, civil partner, unmarried or same-sex partner, the family member and the main applicant must be aged 18 or over on the date, he/she is due to arrive in the United Kingdom.

In order to be granted entry clearance as a child of Tier 2 Minister of Religion, the child must be under the age of 18 on the date of entry clearance application. Switching Into PBS Dependant Visa As A Dependent Of Tier 2 Minister of Religion
Following changes in the Immigration Rules implemented from 1 October 2013, it is now possible to switch into PBS Dependant of Tier 2 Minister of Religion from inside the UK unless:

  • you were last granted leave to enter or remain as a visitor; or

From the above, it is clear that anyone who is not in the UK on a visitor visa or an overstayer with Temporary Admission in the UK can switch into PBS Dependant of Tier 2 Minister of Religion from inside the UK.

In order to apply for leave to remain as the child of a PBS migrant, the child must be under the age of 18 on the date of application.

Extension Of Stay As PBS Dependant Of Tier 2 Minister of Religion

If you are already in the UK on a visa as a PBS dependant of a Tier 2 Minister of Religion, you can seek an extension of stay when the Tier 2 Minister of Religion is either seeking an extension of stay or applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). Certain PBS dependants of Tier 2 Minister of Religion cannot apply for ILR at the same time as the main applicant due to not meeting the residency requirements and therefore they have to apply for an extension of stay when the Tier 2 Minister of Religion is applying for ILR as a Tier 2 Minister of Religion.

A person who was granted PBS dependant visa as a dependant of a Tier 2 Minister of Religion under the rules in place before 9 July 2012 can apply for ILR as a PBS dependant of Tier 2 Minister of Religion if he has lived in the UK for two years on PBS dependant visa and the main applicant is either applying for ILR at the same time or has already been granted ILR as a Tier 2 Minister of Religion. A person who was granted PBS dependant visa as a dependant of a Tier 2 Minister of Religion under the rules in place from 9 July 2012 can apply for ILR as a PBS dependant of Tier 2 Minister of Religion if he has lived in the UK for five years on PBS dependant visa and the main applicant is either applying for ILR at the same time or has already been granted ILR as a Tier 2 Minister of Religion.

Funds For Maintenance

One of the requirements for family members of Points Based System Migrants is that he/she must be able to support themselves without recourse to public funds. This requirement is satisfied by showing funds for maintenance for last 90 days before the date of the application.

If the Tier 2 Minister of Religion is outside the United Kingdom or has been present in the United Kingdom for less than 12 months, each family member of the Tier 2 Minister of Religion must show that he/she, or (for children) his/her other parent who is also legally present in the United Kingdom has at least £1800 to support him/her; this is in addition to any funds the Tier 2 Minister of Religion needs to prove he/she has enough money to support himself/herself.

If the Tier 2 Minister of Religion has been in the United Kingdom for 12 months or more, each family member of the Tier 2 Minister of Religion must have £600 to support himself/herself.
