Good morning, can you kindly confirm which visa you currently hold? It is not clear from above

Hi, i am on the Parents of child student visa.

Expert:  Tamari SL replied 16 days ago.

Do you mean that your parent has a Tier 4 visa and you are your parent's dependant?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
No, i mean i am a parent.
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
My child will go to another school this September. They already issue CAS and everything to confirm. Do we both need new visa? Or just my child need new visa while i continue using my current Parent visa?
Expert:  Tamari SL replied 16 days ago.

May I ask how old is your child?

Expert:  Tamari SL replied 16 days ago.

Also, is you child applying from outside the UK for new visa?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
She is 8 years old. We are currently applying hers in the UK.
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
We are in UK now.
Expert:  Tamari SL replied 16 days ago.

I see, I am afraid I am not 100% sure whether you will be required to leave the UK and apply again as a dependant as your child is being issued with a new CAS with the new school.
