Dependent visa for mother
I am looking to apply for a dependent visa for my mother. My dad passed away this month and I do not wish to leave her on her own here in Indis as my brother also works in uk. I was wondering if she will be eligible for a dependent visa and what the procedure is to get this done.
My brother is on a British passport with wife and children on it too
I live in the uk with my husband and we are on a PR and our children on British passports
Mother has no property or income here in India. There is a possibility of her inheriting her mothers property at some time.
Please help. Your advice is much appreciated.
Yes, your mother is eligible for a dependent visa, and you should visit VFS site to note the procedure.
There is no such thing as an Indian "dependent" visa.
Is your family of Indian origin? You should investigate Entry visa and OCI for possible ways to go.
What is the exact basis on which you think your mum should be able to get a visa? That might help people to give a better answer. As it stands, your question is too vague for anything but shots in the dark.
Condolences on the loss of your father, and welcome to IndiaMike, Debbiedev :)

Not like you to misunderstand posts this early in the night, Nick.
It's all there in the OP's post (not to mention the sub-forum)- she is Indian living in UK, her brother is British living in UK. She wants to take her mother from India to the UK, not vice versa.
OK, got it now. I was completely confused.
Thanks for your reply everyone. Appreciate it. Will look into it and get back if I need any further questions answered
The UK Government's visa and immigration web pages (last time I looked, at any rate) are a model of clarity.
On the other hand, the fees, as quoted by ViShVa above are shocking and make me feel ashamed of my mother country.
I don't think they're unjustifiable. The cost of man-hours that will go into scrutinising and validating applications at UK 'Living-Wage' rates would just about cover the fees.
How much scrutiny is required would depend on one's point of view. Personally, I'd say that fifty to a hundred quid would be about right. Visa fees are not fixed to cover costs, which are paid for by tax payers anyway. Visa fees are a political tool. Sun readers set UK visa fees and immigration policy. Wait... you know all this already, right? :)
