But this is not the complete list of documents, as it depends on cases. You can consult to our immigration experts to get detailed advice of marriage visa.

Can UK spouse visa lead to ILR and citizenship?

In most cases, a spouse visa holder must wait five years to obtain Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR).

If you meet all the requirements, you should be given a partner visa on the 5-year route rather than the 10-year route. Once Indefinite Leave to Remain(ILR) is granted, the applicant will no longer need their sponsor to stay in the UK.

Can I extend my spouse visa?

Yes, you would be able to extend your visa for 30 months (2.5 years) at a time, as long as you meet the requirements. You will have to get your visa extended at least once if you want to stay in UK as a partner or spouse after 60 months. You might also need to extend if, after 5 years, you still don’t meet all of the requirements for settlement. For example, you might not speak English well enough or fail the “Life in the UK” test.

How can I qualify for spouse/partner visa housing?

You must have appropriate housing for you and your partner (and anyone else who is part of your family unit). Property can be owned or rented. You could even be staying with family for free. In every scenario, you must show that there is enough space for you and your spouse.

How do I apply for a UK spouse or partner visa?

The application process can be completed entirely online. Biometric data (picture and fingerprints) enrolment is also required as part of the visa application process.

Additionally, you’ll need to provide copies of all the necessary supporting documents, which can be quite lengthy.  If your caseworker has doubts about your relationship, you may be requested to attend a spouse visa interview. You and your spouse will be quizzed on your relationship and each other to determine if your marriage is real and not just a staged event.

How long does a UK marriage visa application take?

The UK Border Agency(UKBA) typically takes 2–12 weeks to process a spouse visa application after we submit it. Applications are processed at varying rates depending on the country from which they originate. Applying from inside or outside the UK requires an online application for a biometric appointment. A non-UK application may take 3 months to process. Your passport will be stamped with a “vignette” if you’re approved to visit the UK.

Can I work on spouse visa?

Yes, you can work or study in the UK once the spouse visa is granted.
