I'm a dependent of my wife. I am currently not living with her since I am based out of India and would like to not depend upon her to visit the UK (since my work with a UK based company does take me there). I am also open to a tourist visa - this will help me to be with my kids.
I dont mind being based in either the UK or India. I work for the UK companies' India arm as an employee. It looks likely that I need to keep travelling between the two countries.
yes, will need to carry out work in the UK. Both options are open for spending my time.
just two more questions: does this process (of cancelling my existing dependent visa) need to start with my wife applying for the same or can i apply for a fresh one inspite of having an existing dependent visa? how lengthy is this process typically?
thanks- how much time is typically required to get a new visa- had asked previously, but unanswered. Will rate to finish once I get this response :)
