    HI @nvdbkh

    Due to the fact that your family still require another 16 months residence as a PBS dependent before being eligible to apply for ILR, you may not wish to make a SET(LR) application.

    If you were to vary your application to SET(LR) and you were granted settlement on that basis, your family would not be eligible to extend their PBS dependent visas and their applications will be refused if they are already with the Home Office.

    If you are granted ILR on the basis of 5 years as a Tier 1 Entrepreneur, then they will be able to extend their PBS visas and reach 5 years on that route in December 2019.
