I have my grand mother who is around 80 and lives in India with my brother.
My mom is a Portuguese national and she sponsored my dad to come to UK as my dad holds Indian citizenship.
Advised by local agents, we applied for my grand mother as dependent member of EEA national as my mom sends money to her every month and visit her in once in a couple of years.
We applied for her 4 times and it got rejected every time with almost similar reasons like you are not financially dependent, etc.
Below is the refusal reason from her latest (fourth) attempt.
We are not sure what to do now. Thinking to appeal this time but not sure if that will be a good choice given we have to pay huge fees to solicitors.
Please advise what next we should try?
I was advised by one of our relative that I should try to sponsor my grand mother as I am also a Portuguese citizen living in UK. But I recently got visa for my wife on my sponsorship ( Spouse - EEA Family Member).
I am not sure if that will help, since we have been showing that my grand mother as dependent on my mother for her 4 applications and also as I have sponsored already my wife as dependent on me.
Any advice on that?
