ADULT DEPENDENT RELATIVES

Certain adult dependent relatives, residing overseas, may come into the UK to e cared for by a relative in the UK.

Those dependent relatives must be outside the UK to apply and need long-term care from a parent, grandchild, brother, sister, son or daughter who is living permanently in the UK.

Who can sponsor a relative to come to live in the UK ?

The following groups of people in the UK may sponsor their dependent relatives to join them in the UK:

  • EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein citizens with the EU Pre-Settled status - they must have started living in the UK before 1 January 2021
  • Refugee status or Humanitarian Protection in the UK
The applicants must prove all of the following:

  • The person they will be joining in the UK will be able to support, accommodate and care for them without claiming public funds for at least 5 years
