I'm on Tier 2 Sponsorship visa living with my wife in the UK since 2011. They don't count my full-time work on Post Study Work Visa, so that I am not eligible for ILR. My wife is now pregnant and she is planning to give birth in our home country.
- Is it a straightforward process for my newborn baby to get dependant visa? Does this happen through the usual dependant application in my home country by applying at the UK Embassy?
- Can my wife, as a dependant, leave the UK for more than 90 days and not have problems when applying for ILR (when they count days)? I thought this rule applies to main applicants only, i.e. myself. Can my wife leave the UK, for instance, for 6 consecutive months, then return to the UK and, when it is time, apply for ILR?
- Will my grandchildren have to go through same immigration process as I do now because my child (their parent) will be born outside of the UK?
