I am on a Tier 2 Visa working in the UK, my wife and two kids are on the Tier 2 dependant visas.
We had a new baby 3 weeks ago and we got her passport, and want to travel outside the UK. How I will apply for permission to stay for my baby?

Your new child should apply for a tier 2 dependent visa:
Apply as a child
You were born in the UK
You’ll get the same permission to stay as your parent if you were born in the UK.
If you’re under 18
You can either:
- be added to your parent’s next application as a dependant
- apply separately
To apply separately, you’ll need to know what kind of permission to stay in the UK (‘limited leave to remain’) your parent has.
If you leave the UK before doing this, she'll need to apply for a visa before she can return to the UK.
