Dear all,
I would be more than happy if some one could tell me whether a person on dependant visa to a PSW Visa holder can travel to the UK before the main visa holder (entry clearance visa obtained in Chennai)?

Thanks in advance :)

This is the response we got from the HO. So Ste is correct on this issue.

"The dependant can only enter with or after the main applicant, not before''

Well we got the opposite answer and this is far from being unusual.

I would be fascinated to know how anyone at passport control would know that the main applicant was not already in the UK when the dependant turned up with a valid visa...... are our people psychic now? :o

I do agree that it is possible... but IO's are told to ask where the main applicant is before allowing a dependant in. But on a busy night a T3 will the IO always ask???

Dear all,
I am currently a PSW Visa holder in the UK with my husband as the only dependant. I would like to know if I could travel to India while my husband stays in the UK? If so, how long can I be away from him/UK? Our visa is until the end of December'2010. I'd be really happy if some one takes me through this and thanks in advance for your time.

Wish you all a merry christmas and a wonderful new year ahead :)

Regards,
Nithya Prabu.

It is not so much a question of how long but of why. Is it a holiday, do you have a job still in the UK, what will you be doing there?
