A UK Family Visa, most commonly known as a `family of a settled person’ visa, offers family members of non EEA Nationality the opportunity to permanently join a family member who is settled within the UK. A settled person is someone who is a British citizen, someone who has settled in the UK, or someone with humanitarian protection to remain in the UK such as an asylum seeker. This process is more complex than it may seem as there are many different ways to apply depending on a degree of factors.
A Parent Visa UK is a type of Family Visa. It is for family members who are parents to those settled individuals in the UK. A Parent Visa follows the same procedures as all other Family Visas but may require different documentation due to the different nature of the Parental Visa as opposed to another family member.
Children Visas, which are also Family Visas, are for the children of those settled persons in the UK. This is a visa for children looking to apply under the Family Visa. Like many categories under a Family Visa, a Children’s Visa may also require different documentation as proof.
Furthermore, your application can be different if your family member is of EEA or Swiss origin. There are different applications depending on whether you are applying from your home country or within the UK. It is important to know the right application to use and ensure you are providing the right evidence in support.
