Hello everyone,

I am looking into options of having my family members to join me in the UK.

I am an ILR holder.

I read in the guideline that my parent must meet the requirements of being 65 and over. My mom has not reach that age.

Is there any other alternative?

Also my brother who is 37.

Any comments and suggestions much appreciated.

Thanks Victoria.

'fortunately' they are not disable nor have any illness that could categorize under compassion ground.

Does that means my mom who havent turn 65 and my brother who is both healthy and well arent able to join me in the UK?

The 65 years of age threshold is no longer relevant. They could be any age. It's now down to illness or incapacity that has no viable or affordable palliative care available in the applicant's location.

Hi Could you please elaborate on this and where did you read this? I am planning to apply ILR for my parents but both are under 65.
Thanks in advance

It is, indeed, in the rules, and I would say that if you don't know what you are doing you may be doing great harm. A failed settlement application will kill off any chance of a future visit visa application being granted. Seek professional advice on the merit of your prospective applications. Any competent professional should be able to tell you if there is a reasonable chance or not.
