1.This does not answer my query which relates to my stepdaughter's possibly changed status as an adult.
2. It does not relate to the immediate situation I outlined
3. Neither meet the conditions(length of residence) necessary for citizenship.
I repeat, I wish to know if there is a visa she might apply for should we stay in VN a further 2 years by which time she will be 18. She gained her status by being my wife's dependant. Will she still be deemed to be dependant? If she is no longer deemed dependant, is there a visa she can apply for that might eventually be converted to ILR?
Fine. Please continue. It did occur to me after I posted that I had not specified the UK.
