I have recently received an endorsement as an exceptional talent. This route allows for a three-year visa that leads to ILR afterwards. However, as the main website states, dependents can apply for ILR after 5 years.
My question: can I apply for a three-year visa with my dependent applying for a 5-year visa to avoid any issues extending the dependent’s visa after 3 years? (It’s not clear to me how an extension will work for the dependent given that I’ll be applying for an ILR after 3 years, while my girlfriend will be applying for an extension of her dependent’s visa based on me having a UK Global Talent Visa)
I’ve seen posts in this forum suggesting otherwise, i.e. that dependents visa cannot be longer than the main applicant, which may result in them asking to prolong the main applicant visa to 5 years in this case.
What will happen to the extension if a dependent can’t apply for a longer term than a main applicant in this case?
I.e., as an exceptional talent, I can get ILR in 3 years. Will my dependent be able to extend their dependent visa while I am applying for an ILR?
I am in the process of applying extension for my dependants. I came to the UK via Global Talent visa and I got my ILR last week. As my dependants got 3 years visa, now I want to extend the visa for them for next 3 years to stay with me and get the eligibility to apply ILR.
I am confused with the application form to use for extending their visas. As I’m an ILR holder now should I use ILR dependants family visa application form
same Global Talent Dependants extension form to extend(below one)?
If I use the 2nd form in the IHS payment page it’s asking me the person you’re joining or remaining with Enter their Visa expiry date? What should I enter here as I’m an ILR holder now and doesn’t have an end date.
