Partner Dependent (of Visa Migrant) Visa

Many UK visa categories allow the main applicant to bring their partner to live with them in the UK. Examples include the Skilled Worker Visa, the Innovator Visa, etc.


A partner dependant will usually increase the financial requirement for the overall visa application. For example, the Student Visa requires a maintenance level of at least £1,023 per month (for up to 9 months) for courses taught by universities outside London, while the same student, bringing their partner, will need a maintenance level of at least £1,703 per month.


Generally, the immigration permission the partner dependent receives will be in line with that of the main applicant. 


Interestingly, the partner dependent of the migrant will be subject to fewer restrictions when compared to the migrant. For example, there is usually no restriction on work for the partner dependent.
