This page explains the requirements you must meet to come to the UK as the parent of a child in the UK.
To qualify under this route you must be the parent of a child who is:
- under the age of 18 on the date you apply;
- living in the UK; and
- a British citizen or settled in the UK.
You can apply under this route if:
- you have sole responsibility for the child or the child normally lives with you and not their other parent; or
- if the parent or carer that the child normally lives with is a British citizen or settled in the UK, but is not your partner, and you do not qualify for entry clearance as a partner.
