Thanks for your question.

To what extent is the parent dependent (eg. financially, socially) on the children based in the UK please?

Kind regards

Thanks for your reply.

The correct form of visa application in these circumstances is an application for an adult dependent visa.

The eligiblity criteria for this form of applicaiton is on the following link:-

Please refer to the section with the heading titled "Coming to be cared for - you’re an adult dependent relative".

You will have to show that they are dependent on you and cannot carry out day to day tasks themselves and require care to do so from others. You have to show that this form of care is not avialable in the country where they are based and that you can support/accomodate them when they are here, so that no public funds will need to be claimed asa reuslt of them coming here.

It's quite a complicated application in that the evidential burdern of supporting documentation to be submitted with the application is quite detailed, so I really would advise instructing a soliciotr in order to advise you of your eligiblity based upon the documentation that you can gather after intially consulting with them and to draft the application for you.

Kind regards,
