and

If αυτοτελής means independent (see: https://www.wordreference.com/gren/αυτοτελης ), then μη αυτοτελής means non-independent or contingent, hence contingent application.

This is also called a "conditional application". See:

Although the opposite of 'independent' is 'dependent', the term 'dependent application' generally refers to the application that a foreigner files seeking permission for a close relative (wife or parent) to stay or work in a country that he has emigrated to.

Also, although ΄μη αυτοτελής' can also be translated as 'non-autonomous', the small number of Internet results that I obtained for 'non-autonomous application' referred to 'application' as in 'εφαρμογή', and not to 'application' as in 'αίτηση'.

The relevance of my previous note (of yesterday) was merely to say that before I recommended my answer of 'contingent application' (or 'conditional application'), I had checked other possible alternatives to determine if any could apply.
