UK Immigration: How can PBS migrants legalise the immigration status of their new born child in the UK?

29 January 2010

Under the current UK immigration rules a new born child will not be automatically British merely on the basis of having been born in the UK unless one of the parents is at the time of birth settled in this country i.e. has acquired or .

Therefore, if a Points Based Scheme migrant has a new-born child and wants to submit an application on their behalf as a dependant, they will need to use a PBS dependent form and not an FLR(O) form. At the moment, a legal representative can submit Tier 1 PBS dependent applications using the same day service at the Public Enquiry Office. All Tier 2 dependents, however, require now biometric and cannot be used by the representative service.
