Application for Dependants (BVI)

By: Nick Cunha | Last Updated: December 21, 2016

After your work permit is approved and processed, you can request for your family to arrive as dependants.

Firstly, you will need to fill a template letter for Immigration. A template of the dependency application letter can be found here.

Along with the completed letter to Immigration, you will need to submit the following:

  • An Employment letter from the Employer addressed to the Immigration Department (this should ideally include when the employment started, what the salary is, where the employee lives , duration of the contract and type of employment, ie. full-time)
  • Copy of approved work permit paperwork
  • Certified translation of Marriage Certificate
  • Certified translation of Birth Certificates (children)
  • Copy of picture page of all passports

Note that a bond for the dependants is to be paid. Many companies write a letter, which will serve as a bond. The amount of the bond is determined by the immigration department, and as a general guide, the amount is should cover purchase of last minute plane tickets to the home country (for the whole family).
