Bringing your elderly parents to the UK
It is possible to sponsor your elderly parents to come to the UK. There are various options available to bring your elderly parents to the UK, however, the specific routes available depend on individual circumstances.
If you plan to bring your elderly parents to the UK for a temporary visit, then your elderly parents may be eligible to apply for a Visitor Visa. The Standard Visitor Visa, will enable your elderly parents to come to the UK for a period of up to six-months, however, they must be considered to be a ‘genuine visitor’ and intend to return to their country of origin at the end of their visit. However, if your elderly parents require multiple visits over a long period of time (from 2 to 10 years in duration) then a Multiple-Entry Family Visitor Visa may be an appropriate option. Again they will need to meet a set of eligibility requirements, including being a genuine visitor and intending to return to their country of origin at the end of their visit.
Alternatively, there is a more permanent option called the Adult Dependent Relative visa. This option is suitable for cases where the person in the UK is a British citizen and is willing to provide care for their elderly parents. The Adult Dependent Relative visa enables elderly parents to remain in the UK permanently, ensuring they receive the care they need and can be with their family.
