BRINGING FAMILY TO THE UK

Every visitor to the United Kingdom wishes to know if they can bring their family. Yes, you may bring. Your family members ('dependents') may accompany you to the UK on your visa, but they will require financial support. You are not permitted to bring anyone else into the United Kingdom.

Any of the following constitutes a 'dependent':

Your spouse, wife, or common-law partner your kid under the age of 18

 

Important Update: Effective immediately, your partner's child/children should have a predetermined sum of money. As a result, they must sustain themselves while in the UK. This is required when applying for a dependent visa to the United Kingdom.

 

Your dependents may accompany you to the UK upon your arrival or at any time thereafter. Given that you are coming to the UK as a pre-registered nurse, the majority of companies recommend that you bring your family after passing the OSCE examination or within a few months of arrival. This is to ensure the safety of the colony.
