Child (of Family Visa Migrant) Settlement

Officially part of the Appendix FM Routes.


The Child (of Family Visa Migrant) settlement route may be applicable in the case of a child born from the migrant's previous relationship. If the child is from the current relationship between the UK citizen/settled person and the foreign migrant, the child may be eligible to apply directly for British citizenship.


The child should already be in the UK on a Child (of Family Visa Migrant) Visa before applying for settlement. The child should not be married, in a civil partnership or living an independent life. The child may be eligible even if they are over 18, as long as their most recent visa approval was the Child (of Family Visa Migrant) Visa.


For the settlement of a child of a general visa migrant, please refer instead to the Child Dependent (of Visa Migrant) Settlement page.
