If you obtain the Global Talent visa and you are outside the UK, you can bring certain family members known as “dependants” with you. These are your:
- spouse or partner
- children under the age of 18; and
- children over 18 who are already in the UK.
It costs an extra £608 per dependant to add them to your Stage 2 visa application.
If you are already in the UK with your dependants and you switch to the Global Talent visa, they will be able to remain with you. Whether or not they need to apply for new visas will depend on the circumstances and it is recommended that you contact us to discuss this further.
