I would like to know if I am eligible to a UK independent visa. My partner is now studying post-graduate degree at Imperial College. Also, I would like to know what independent visa permits me.
I need to know what are the required documents?
Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm happy to help with your question today.
Where are you currently living? Why do you wish to come to the UK? What are your personal circumstances e.g. work/children/property status/future plans?
I am currently living at Saudi Arabia and my wife is studying post_graduate at Imperial College in London.
I want to come to join my wife and maybe study or work if this is permitted.
I am currently working in Saudi Arabia in IT fields for 15 years.
Thank you for the info.
But you have not yet answered my original question. Am I eligible for independent visa based on my situation and the current status of my wife? What can/cannot do with this type of visa comparing to visitor or tourist visa?
Thank you for your prompt reply.
Sorry, I was meaning dependent visa. I just checked UKBA website and found this type of visa which might apply to my situation "Partners and children of migrant workers and students". Does this apply to me?

The IT job I am holding now is in Saudi Arabia but when I come to London and live with her, I will be dependent of her until she finished her study which will be in 2018, isn't it?
I will resign from my current job when I decided to live with her in London. When she finished her study, we will come back to Saudi Arabia and apply for a new job.
Thank you for the reply. We start to get there..
How about "Partners and children of migrant workers and students", Does this apply to me? I could not understand everything on UKBA page that I sent earlier but, to my understanding, it talks about a family member who wants to join his/her relative while she/he is studying.
