Eligibility for a parent visa

The Parent visa is for parents of children who are a British or Irish citizen, settled in the UK with indefinite leave to remain, settled status or permanent residence, or are from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein and have pre-settled status.

The broad eligibility requirements for the parent visa are: 

Duration of a Parent Visa

The initial grant for a parent visa is for 2 years and 9 months if applying from outside the UK or 2 years and 6 months if applying from within the UK. You must apply for an extension and if successful this will be for a further period of 2 years and 6 months.

In the future, you may be able to make an application for indefinite leave to remain in the UK once you have you completed the required residence which is applicable at the time of the application. Remember that immigration laws can change so it is best to seek up to date advice before submitting an application.
