They are a British overseas territories citizen, unless they are from one of the sovereign base areas in Cyprus;

They are a Commonwealth citizen with permission to enter or stay in the UK because at least one of their grandparents was born here.

Their partner or (if they are under 18) one of their parents has permission to stay in the UK under Tier 2 of the points-based system - they should apply as their dependant; or

They have no conditions or time limit attached to your stay
