Understanding Dependent Visas: Requirements, Process, and Application

A dependent visa allows family members of a primary visa holder, such as spouses, children, and sometimes other dependents, to join them in the host country. Requirements include proof of relationship, a valid visa for the primary holder, financial support evidence, health insurance, background checks, and medical exams. The process involves gathering documents, submitting the application online or at an embassy, attending biometrics and interviews if required, and waiting for processing. Check country-specific requirements, understand any rights or restrictions for dependent visa holders, and consider renewals and extensions. For detailed guidance, consult the specific country’s immigration website or an immigration consultant.
