UK Home Office Reverses Position On Care Visa For Dependants


The United Kingdom government reversed its policy of March 11, 2024, that prohibited care workers and senior care workers from bringing dependents when they migrate to the UK, and only made Care Quality Commission  (CQC) -registered providers in England to be able to sponsor Health and Care Visa applicants.

In a document updated on the UK Home Office website today, April 11, 2024, said a Skilled Worker route now allows defendants to apply.

“The Skilled Worker route is for employers to recruit people to work in the UK, including in UK waters, in a specific job. A Skilled Worker must have a job offer in an eligible skilled occupation from a Home Office-approved sponsor. A dependent partner and dependent children can apply on this route,” the document obtained by BlackBox Nigeria reads.
