Child (of Family Visa Migrant) Visa

Officially part of the Appendix FM & Part 8 Routes.


The child of a Family Visa migrant might need a visa in certain circumstances, for example if the child is from the Family Visa migrant's previous relationship. In this case, the migrant parent would usually be required to have sole parental responsibility over the child, for the child to be eligible. However, the sole parental responsibility requirement does not apply if the child was born in the UK.


The Child (of Family Visa Migrant) Visa may also be the most suitable option in the special circumstance if the child is from the current relationship between the UK citizen/settled person and the Family Visa migrant, but was born outside the UK and is not eligible for British Citizenship.


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