    There isn’t a specific ‘carer’s visa’, the application would be for a visitor visa, which must be applied for outside the UK. Are you able to provide more detail of your circumstances?

    she has been caring for my mum as alive in carer for 18 months and is brilliant she was on a student visa which i only know now as she came through a reputable agency ispoke to her immigration lawyer who says he is applying for a carers visa which he says could take 1 to 2 years which i cant believe she has been given 28 days to leave the country but he says once he applies she will be ok

    Is this a relative or paid help?

    I don't think relatives come via agencies. Safe to assume she was hired help.

    In which case she's been working illegally for the past 18 months. A student visa allows 20 hours work per week.

    1. Her agency can hardly be called reputable, if they assign illegal workers to their clients 2. Her 'immigration lawyer' must be a charlatan as there is no such thing as a carers visa. Her chances of getting a work visa for a low paid, low skill job are ZERO.

    Given what has been posted, I have doubts the agency have even spoken to a qualified immigration advisor. The chances of being given a visa for this type of employment is very remote.

    For the sake of those searching the forums in the future, here is a link to the basic law and policy regarding 'carer' type applications.

    thanks tobias its actually te carer whos in touch with the lawyer weve looked at the website it seems ok and spoken to him he sounds credible but i doubt much of what he said he reckons it could take 1 to 2 years to get the visa a lot less time than to get her money but she wants to do it so if it takes months good for my mum
