Obtaining Fiancee & Spousal Visas for the UK
UK Fiancé Visa
The fiancé visa (or proposed civil partner visa) is issued to applicants who intend to marry (form a civil partnership) a British citizen (or permanent resident). It is issued by a foreign post where the applicant has a claim to normal residence or citizenship. The visa runs for six months and during that period the applicant and sponsor are expected to marry. Once landed in the UK, the applicant cannot seek access to public funds, and is not allowed to accept employment.
The holder of a fiancé visa' may use the NHS. Additionally, the fiancé may attend courses and learning programs.
A successful application for a fiancé visa will generally include evidence, and some notes about this are given below. Care should be taken, however, because these notes are generic and may not apply to a given case. Some consulates are more rigorous than others, and some applicant profiles invite more scrutiny than others. Accordingly, this list should not be taken as authoritative.
All evidence should be in the form of originals or certified copies. While not strictly required, it can be helpful and save time to make an additional photocopy of each document submitted.
We also recommend that the applicant make a copy of the entire application package in the event that documents are lost in the post or misplaced by the consulate.
Documents submitted as evidence will be returned to the applicant once the consulate has processed them.
The applicant must present a valid passport with at least 6 months remaining until its expiry, and at least one full empty page where the visa can be affixed.
If the passport was not issued in the country where the application is made, it should include evidence that the applicant is normally resident in that country. If the applicant cannot establish citizenship or normal residence in the country where the application is submitted, the application will fail save for extraordinary circumstances (such as refugees). An exception to this rule occurs where the Foreign Office has instructed a consulate to process applications from another country.
Some consulates will require that the national identity card (or birth certificate) be presented in addition to the passport.
And finally, the applicant's passport must be issued by an entity recognized by the UK as a legitimate sovereign government.
The applicant must provide evidence of biometric enrolment. This is a matter of recording one's fingerprints and photograph at an approved biometric enrolment centre. There's more information on our Biometric FAQ page.
This usually takes the form of the sponsor's passport. If the passport itself cannot be presented, then a notarized copy of the portrait page should be made by a UK authorized notary or solicitor (i.e., member of the Law Society).
If the sponsor does not have a passport, then the sponsor's original birth certificate can be substituted, although this would be considered rare.
If the sponsor is not British (or without right of abode), the sponsor's identification document should show that the sponsor has acquired permanent residence in the UK. A within-the-rules application cannot succeed if the sponsor's status is junior to permanent residence.
