PBS Dependant Extension After main application got the British Citizenship

Post by ashokhein » Wed May 15, 2024 6:30 pm

I came to the UK in 2016 with Tie 2 General and got the ILR in 2021 after staying continuously for 5 years and then got British Citizenship. My spouse joined in 2017 and applied for an extension in 2021.

but she has been outside the UK for more than 6 months in 2018 so she still can't meet the 5-year route yet so we need another extension to get the 5-year route.

Now I am trying to complete the Dependent Partner Extension Application under Skilled Worker and need to pay for the IHS fees but it is asking for the COS Start / End Date but I don't have the COS because of ILR (and I cut the ILR and sent it to the home office after getting Naturalization)

I can't enter my past COS dates. Not sure how we proceed further.

Put the dates 3 years in the future as that's how long extension is going to be (and pay fees for 3 years).

There is NO absence limit if this absence was on a visa issued BEFORE 11th January 2018. The dependent absence limit ONLY applies to dependent visas issued AFTER 11th January 2018.

Thanks for the response.

Let me give the correct timeline for the absence.

She got the Tier 2 Dependent Visa in Sep 2017.

She has been outside the UK from July 2018 -> Mar 2019 (Due to Delivery)
She has been outside the UK from Mar 2020 - Oct 2020 (Due to Covid Restrictions)

We renewed the Tier 2 Dependent Visa in 2021 (applied by Jan 2021, and granted by Jun 2021 -> Jun 2024).

So can we apply for Dependent ILR now?

She got the Tier 2 Dependent Visa in Sep 2017.
When did this visa expire?
She has been outside the UK from July 2018 -> Mar 2019 (Due to Delivery)
She has been outside the UK from Mar 2020 - Oct 2020 (Due to Covid Restrictions)
There is NO absence limit if the absence occurred during the whole time of a visa issued BEFORE 11th January 2018.
We renewed the Tier 2 Dependent Visa in 2021 (applied by Jan 2021, and granted by Jun 2021 -> Jun 2024).
Only absence during June 2021 and June 2024 is relevant under the rules!!

Absence Limit from 11 January 2018 (click)

She doesn't need an extension. She can apply for ILR. She could have applied for ILR in September 2022 already.

Thanks for your reply.

I understand that this same applicable to the PBS Dependant Child as well.

I am trying to fill out the form Set(O)

Does the period of stay on which this application was based include any leave granted since 11 January 2018?
Yes

Have you had any absences from the UK during any leave granted since 11 January 2018?
Yes

Should I include the absence only from Jan 2021?
