The UK Dependent Visa allows UK citizens and holders of certain visas to bring their dependents to live with them in the UK. With this visa, you can bring your spouse, children, parents, and other close relatives to the UK.
The sponsor must show that he will be able to provide for his dependents while they are in the UK. To establish that he has the required funds, he must provide his bank statement.
This visa is open to both families and children. The sponsor is a permanent resident or citizen of the United Kingdom who can apply for the visa on behalf of their family members.
