Dear OTS solicitors, I am a Japanese student and currently studying for PhD on Tier 4. I am thinking of bringing my wife to UK on Tier 4 dependent visa. The question is: can she remain in UK while I am away from UK for the field trip back in Japan for about a year (starting this summer)? She wants to remain because she has to secure the job here (she is now promised a job). Under the regulation of UKVI I have to notice UKVI through my uni that I will be away from UK for the field trip, and I wonder whether 'living together' condition applies to this case.
