Thanks for confirming. What status does your parent's hold in the UK? How old are you?

If your parents work you can apply as a Child of Migrant Worker just now and once you have your Settled Status you can send your updated Home Office letter with new share code. Do you know the evidence required for the Migrant Worker?

Okay thank you , I’m not sure what evidence is required for the migrant worker.

We'd need the following:

Your Home office letter and immigration status share code

Your parent Home office letter and immigration status share code

Your Birth Certificate

Your parent employment contract (or UTR Letter if self employed)

Your parents last 3 months worth of payslips (or invoices and bank statements if self employed)


You'd choose one parent to send the evidence over for.

Thanks, Ross
