Hello--about to apply for a job and need to use the Myjobscotland.co.uk for the first time - it asks what my Entitlement to Work is--I am on a settlement visa, approaching my 1-year anniversary in the U.K. The options seem to be a lot of options I know i DEFINITELY am NOT! And....

-dual U.K.
-family member of an EEA nation
-Settlement (IRL)
-family of a settled person

My husband thinks i am dependent? Is he right? I'm stuck before I even start my job hunt!! 😂 Thanks in advance.

Family of a settled person, it's what all the visa paperwork talks about us being.
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

Thank you @lyonaria and @larrabee - my natural born Scottish husband wants me to make sure you know he is "full-blooded" and all that 😂- he feels he is more than a settled person. It's been a year for me doing all that paperwork and now what you're saying is ringing a bell so thank you--I actually was not even looking at that option! I'm good to go on it, but he just wants to be sure. Thanks so much!

Lol - 'settled' just means you have the right to live and work in the UK without a visa or any kind of immigration restrictions.

So, UK citizens and people who hold ILR or Permanent Residence (PR) are considered 'settled' in the UK.

Settlement is not to be confused with a 'settlement visa' though.

Settled person = someone who is “free from any restriction on the period for which he / she may remain in the UK, and ordinarily resident in the UK”

Settlement = the act of becoming a settled person in the UK (receiving ILR or PR, or by being a UK citizen)

Settlement visa = a temporary visa issued for the purpose of eventually gaining settlement and therefore becoming a settled person in the UK

Dependant would be, for example, if he were on a work visa and you accompanied him as his dependant wife.

Haha. Yep, but he is technically settled as a citizen! My hubby is English.

Our choice on the .gov site is family of a settled person. I don't understand why, but there you go. It's probably because settled covers those with ILR, citizenship and PR. 🙃

And ksand of course covered all the definitions. Glad my little guess was right.

@ksand24 @lyonaria @larrabee you all rock. Thanks so much! I was worried I wouldn't be able to apply. I read Ksand's reply to my very hubby and he has "settled" down now 😝- wish me luck!

If you don't mind me asking, what does: Dual -UK mean?
