Check How to Apply Dependent Visa to Overseas

Holders of different types of visa may need to take their family members with them while moving abroad for work, permanent residence and studies. These family members in most cases can be their little children, brothers and sisters, spouse, fiance, who depends solely on the main applicant or with whom they share affections with who is willing to travel. In such a case they would have to apply for a dependent visa to cover their travelling family members.

Dependents can be categorized into any of the following:

  • Spouse
  • Fiance[e]
  • Siblings
  • Dependent children
  • Same-sex civil partners
  • proposed same-sex civil partners

Types of dependent visas

It is classified as a permanent or temporary visa

Temporary visa

They are categorized as follows:

  • Dependent Work visa: When travelling on a work visa, your family members are eligible to travel with you on the dependent visa especially when your destination is one that greatly requires labour ,e.g, Australia. However, it is a temporary type of visa, and so your children must be unmarried and below 18 years or you travel with your spouse alone.
  • Dependent Student visa: when travelling to study, you can include your dependent family members on your student visa application or apply for them to come to join you overseas after you must have started your studies over there

When including them in your original study visa, you are required to put them on your main form 157A: Application for the student visa.

  • Intracompany transfer
  • Fiance

Permanent visa

These migration processes are meant for spouses, children who are below 18 - 21 years and immigration dependents. In some case, the dependents can apply for a work visa to enable them to work in the country.


Children and partners or spouses on temporary visas are limited to working rights based on the validity of the visa in most of the countries except in the US.

Dependents who have permanent residence visas have the unlimited right to study, live and work for as long as they are in their permanent residence.

In order to qualify for the dependent visa, the candidates must meet up with the following requirements:

  • They must show the relationship on which the application is known for and also provide evidence of his/her relationship.
  • They must provide proof that the main applicant is in possession of enough funds to take care of the dependent or to show that the dependent has enough fund to care for themselves without any means of public funding.


This type of dependent visa does not have any particular criteria for income required to make the sponsor or main applicant eligible to sponsor the dependent [spouse]. The most important requirement for the visa is a relationship proof which should be a marriage certificate or else the spouse migration will not be approved.
