UK Begins Dependants’ Ban For Migrant Care Workers


March 12, 2024

The United Kingdom (UK) has started the implementation of the dependants’ ban on migrant caregivers. 

In a post on its X handle on Monday, the UK Home Office said the move is part of plans to cut migration, and promptly, care workers entering the UK on Health and Care Worker visas can no longer bring dependants.

With the UK government keen to crack down on net migration which has risen to record levels, restrictions have been introduced, including on family members accompanying foreign students for non-research postgraduate courses.
