Petition Action

Allow parents of NHS workers to come to the UK as their dependents.

Petition Details

There are many foreign doctors, nurses and other NHS staff working tirelessly and bravely in the current situation, putting their lives at risk The parents of NHS workers should be allowed to come over to the UK as our dependents, to provide us emotional support and for us to look after them.

Additional Information

Many us don't have our families here, especially those that are single, and/or our parents are living alone in our home countries.
Having our parents around would provide us more support, especially emotionally, and will let us and our parents be at peace of mind when we are in each others' presence. My sincere request/ appeal to the UK government to allow us to have parents on dependent visas here, just like we are allowed to have spouses/children as dependents, without any specific criteria.
