  • SET(BUS) – applying as overseas business representative or retired person of independent means
  • SET(DV) – applying as victims of domestic violence
  • SET(F) – applying as children of British citizens or people settled in the UK

In addition, the guidance notes for the SET(BUS), SET(LR), SET(M) and SET(O) have also been updated.
