Hello TN community,
I am on a Tier-1 Global Talent Visa and my spouse is on the GTV dependent visa.
During my initial stage-2 application (in 2020) - I had applied for 3 years for both - self and her (as far as I remember, I couldn’t have applied for 3 years for self and 5 years for her?). I am sure everyone who has got an exceptional talent endorsement have had to go through this?
Now next year i.e September 2023, I will be eligible to apply for the ILR. But I will have to apply for a 2-year GT dependent visa extension for her.
Can someone help me on how I should go about it? I mean, can I apply for her extension now or should I do it with specific time remaining? What is the process?
I searched online and the links took me to start a ‘fresh’ stage-2 application - but I wasn’t sure, so thought of asking this helpful community. Surely, an extension is a different process flow?
Can someone who has gone through this process advise me? Your help will be much appreciated.
