UK Family Visas

Successful applicants for UK immigration can generally bring spouses, partners and dependent children with them to the UK.  The relative will then enjoy the same benefits as the main applicant in terms of work rights and rights to education for the children.

Generally, such partners or children must apply for entry clearance before coming to the UK. The partner of the main visa holder would have the same conditions placed on their visa as the visa holder.

If you are looking to bring a spouse or partner to the UK, you can find more information in our UK Partner Visa section. Alternatively, there are options available to those who have some other family ties to UK citizens, permanent residents or EU Citizens (generally those who at least have Indefinite Leave to Remain) to be sponsored to come to the UK with a view to being here permanently.
