What is a Fiance Visa?

If you intend to relocate to the UK to begin a new life with your UK-based partner, you could be eligible for the UK Fiance Visa. The Fiance Visa is designed to enable non-EEA nationals to enter the UK to marry/enter into a civil partnership with their UK-based partner and to begin a new life here. The applicant’s partner must be either a UK citizen or a person with settled status in the country.

Fiance Visas last for 6 months, and they are granted under the assumption that you will marry your partner within the validity period of the visa. If, for an exceptional reason, you were unable to marry within this period, it may well be possible to extend it.

You must apply for another immigration permission to remain in the UK after your Fiance Visa expires. The simplest is to switch from the UK Fiance visa to the Spouse Visa, which grants holders 30 months of residence in the UK. You can look for employment and study in the UK as a Spouse Visa holder without any restrictions.

Who is eligible for a UK Fiancé Visa?

To be eligible for the Fiance Visa, both you and your partner must meet certain conditions and requirements.


The main current eligibility criteria:


·       Both you and your partner must be at least 18-years-old

·       You must be planning to get married within the 6-month validity period of the Fiancé Visa

·       Your partner must be a UK citizen or a person with settled status

·       You must intend to live with your partner in the UK once you are married/in a civil partnership

·       If you are from a non-English-speaking country, you need to take an approved SELT test to prove that you can understand and communicate in English to the level of A1 as set by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages

·       One of the essential UK Fiance Visa requirements is the genuine relationship requirement. You must provide sufficient evidence to prove that you are in a genuine relationship with your UK-based partner

·       If you or your partner have been married previously, you must give genuine proof that your previous marriage has been terminated through divorce (which must have been done officially through the courts) or widowed
