Hi,

I am the only daughter of my single mother and she is dependent on me. Will she get a visa if I work abroad?

Thanks in advance.

What is abroad ? UK ? US ? Canada ? UAE ? .... Each country has it's own definition of dependant visa.

How about "retired"? As long as you don't put journalist, media, writer,
missionary, Pakistani terrorist bomber I don't think they care. How long she plans to stay affects the choice of visas..

I assumed you meant for India. But, from which country matters also..

Nope ! She is Indian citizen, applying for a job "abroad" - the kind twitter-in-chief just signed an executive order few days ago, restricting entry to the US.

Abroad means US/UK. She should be staying with me as long as I work there as I don't want to leave her in India.

Hi, LavanyaK, and welcome to IndiaMike

In the UK, at least, I suspect that your mother will most likely not get a dependent visa as you start your work. Getting one issued in parallel with your work visa will be a problem.

However, when you start your job, she should be able to accompany you with little difficulty with a Tourist/Visitor Visa and hence be able to be with you from the start. In the UK, such visitor visas are usually issued for a maximum 6-month stay, and then she would have to return to India before applying for another one. She may also be able to apply for a 'Family Visa' from India after you are settled in your job to join you as a dependent.

Read the UK rules here if you get your work visa under a points-based system (PBS):

Guidance for dependants of UK visa applicants (Tiers 1, 2, 4, 5)

"Full guidance on the policy for applications by the family of people who have UK visas under the points-based system (PBS dependants)." - PDF

Family visas: apply from outside the UK >>

Quote:
1. Overview

You’ll need a ‘family of a settled person’ visa if you’re from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland and you want to join, for 6 months or more, a partner or family member who’s living in the UK permanently.

You don’t need a ‘family of a settled person’ visa to visit your family for up to 6 months, but you should check if you need a Standard Visitor visa.

Your family member can:

be a British citizen
have settled in the UK
have asylum or humanitarian protection in the UK

If you meet the eligibility requirements, you can apply to:

join your partner (spouse, fiancé(e), civil or unmarried partner)
join your parent
come to look after your child
come to be looked after by family

...

How long it takes

You should get a decision on your visa within 12 weeks. Check the guide to processing times to find out how long getting a visa might take in your country.


Fees

Your situation Fee

Adult who needs to be looked after by a relative £3,250

You may also have to pay the healthcare surcharge as part of your application.
Check how much you need to pay before you apply.

Dependent Visa (H4) for US for a person on a non-immigrant visa (H1B) , does not go beyond spouse, and children below a certain age. At this moment, everything is in a flux, I would not encourage any one other than a citizen (even a permanent resident) to attempt this.
