Help needed regarding dependants visa

I am seeking some help regarding the dependent’s visa. I have recently switched from a skilled worker visa to Global Talent Visa, while my spouse and children are still holding the previous skilled worker dependent visas. In my conversation with the UKVI helpline, I was informed that their visas remain valid until their expiration, as indicated on the following page:

I acquired my skilled worker visa through sponsorship from my employer, who also sponsored (paid for) the visas for my dependents.

When I asked the helpline representative whether the term “expiration” referred to the actual visa end date or if the visas would expire once my current employer notifies the UKVI that I am no longer under their sponsorship, they were unable to provide a definitive answer.

I am a little worried about it as I have upcoming travel plans with my family outside the UK

I’ll appreciate the clarification from someone knowledgeable in this matter.

Thanks :slight_smile:

No need to worry. I went thorough the same. Dependant visas are valid until original the expiration date when you switch to gt visa

Thankyou Vudu. Did you travel outside the UK and come back as well with dependants?

Yesterday, I returned to the UK while my family was still on the old skilled worker-dependent visa. Had no issues.
