There is nothing in the requirements for leave as the family member of a relevant points-based system migrant (RPBSM) in the Immigration Rules, Part 8, paras 319C or 319E that would require an application from a dependant to be made where their RPBSM has switched categories within the points based system (PBS).

The only exception is where the RPBSM has moved into the Tier 4 (General)
