WF2.20 Non-principal applicant partners included in residence applications under Government Residence instructions whose grant of residence has been deferred
- If an immigration officer has deferred a final decision, on a non-principal applicant partner included in a residence application, because the partnership with the principal applicant is genuine and stable but less than the 12 months required (see R184.108.40.206(b)), then:
- provided the principal applicant is granted a residence class visa, and
- an application for a work visa is made by the non-principal applicant partner for the purpose of continuing to live together with the principal applicant partner,
a work visa may be granted to the non-principal applicant for a period sufficient to enable the qualifying period to be met and any further assessment of their residence application to be completed.
