PBS Dependant visa

PBS Dependant visa

A PBS dependant is the family member of a Migrant who has valid leave as a Tier 1, 2, 4 or 5 under the points based system and who wishes to apply for leave to enter or remain in the UK.

A ‘dependant’ is any of the following:

  • husband, wife or partner
  • child under 18
  • child over 18 if they’re currently in the UK as a dependant

PBS Dependants must be able to support themselves throughout their stay in the UK without recourse to any public funds.

A PBS dependant will be granted leave in accordance with the leave of the PBS Migrant or for 3 years if the PBS Migrant has already been granted indefinite leave to remain or has naturalised as a British Citizen.

PBS dependants are allowed to study and work in the UK (there are a few exceptions) and could be eligible for settlement after 5 years of continuous residence in the UK with the PBS Migrant.
