Spouse & Partner Visas

Spouse & Partner Visas

A partner can be a spouse, a civil partner (same-sex relationship), an unmarried partner, a fiancé(e) or a prospective civil partner (same-sex relationship). The relevant definition of an unmarried partnership is that the parties have already lived together in a relationship like marriage for at least two years (in either the UK or outside the UK).

UK immigration law may enable a non-EEA partner to join or remain with their partner in the UK, if the partner in the UK is a British citizen or holds settlement or refugee/humanitarian protection status.

Fiancé(e)/Prospective Civil Partner visas have rather different rules from the other categories. The visa can only be applied for from outside the UK and is granted for only six months. The visa holder is not allowed to work, and they are expected to marry/form a civil partnership within the six-month period, and then they can apply in-country to switch to a Spouse or Civil Partner visa.

The other visas can all be applied for from either outside or within the UK (depending on the applicant’s circumstances) and the initial grant of leave is for 30 months. At the end of the 30-month period, if the relationship is still subsisting and if all the other requirements are still met, it will be possible to extend the visa. After either five years or ten years (depending on the circumstances) it may be possible to apply for settlement.

The basic types of requirement for partner visas are as follows but, very importantly, requirements vary depending on the applicant’s situation:

-Showing that the relationship is genuine.

-Showing that financial earnings or savings are sufficient

-Showing that accommodation is adequate

-Showing that the English language level is high enough

Partner visa applications tend to be complex, and this can particularly be the case when assessing the financial earnings/savings. The calculations can be complex and the evidential requirements are very precise.

At Get UK Visa we have many years of experience of partner visas, and we can assist our clients by making an initial assessment of their application and advising them whether they should apply straightaway or improve their evidence and apply later. If the evidence is not good enough then the application is very likely to be refused, and we can give realistic advice about this, and competent advice about how to improve an inadequate application.

We will –
  • Give you detailed advice about the required supporting documents for the application.
  • Prepare the visa application form.
  • Write a cover letter for the application which will include an enclosure list and present the application in an orderly way.

  • review rating 5  I highly recommend GET the UK Visa, I've selected them for my ILR application as a British Spouse. In the beginning, I was a little bit sceptical and scared. I was coming from an agency where the solicitor did not know anything about the new digital rules, and I was freaking out every time I was talking to this lady. (At that time the digital application was new for me because I made my previous applications in an analogue way and with no solicitor help). Adel and all the team were extremely patient; they listened to us and gave us all the confidence and knowledge to understand all the new digital process. He's been all the time next to us, answering all the questions and doubts. Even if I was having over and over again the same needs and doubts, he was always there. I had our Residency approved on the same day Application. We decided, with no doubt, that he was also going to help us with my citizenship, which I've applied on the 22nd of February 2020. Due to Covid-19, he received my approval letter at the beginning of August 2020. The real date of the approval was the 24th of March 2020. So it means that thanks to Adel, the Home Office approved my citizenship a month after my application!!!!! Thank you very much to Adel and all the team!!
