A ‘dependant’ is considered any of the following:
your child under 18
your child over 18 if they’re a dependant presently in the UK
They will also need to get their fingerprints and photo taken.
If your dependant(s) are in the UK, they can apply for an extension. Members of your family cannot apply in the UK if they hold a visitor visa.
