Spouse Visa UK Application

As a non-UK national spouse or civil partner of a UK citizen, you do not automatically acquire immediate immigration rights or lawful status in the UK. To reside in the UK with your spouse, you are required to submit an application to the UK Home Office. Your application should include compelling evidence that demonstrates compliance with the prerequisites for a Spouse Visa.

The UK Spouse Visa, commonly known as a UK Marriage Visa, allows non-UK nationals to join their partner in the UK. Your spouse must be either a British citizen or a UK settled person.

The Home Office is adopting a more stringent approach in assessing spouse visa applications. Therefore, it is crucial to meticulously adhere to the correct procedures and present a thorough submission that effectively proves your eligibility.

Indefinite Leave to remain

Indefinite Leave to Remain enables a person to become permanently settled in the UK. In other words, they will have the right to remain in the UK indefinitely without any immigration conditions imposed.

In most situations, an individual can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain after five years of continuous and lawful residence.

Indefinite Leave to Remain, or UK settlement, grants an applicant the right to live and work in the UK without any immigration restrictions. It is a mandatory requirement for non-EEA nationals looking to apply for British citizenship.

Generally, this means having spent 5 continuous years in the UK with lawful status and without excessive absences.

We look at some of the frequently asked questions put to us by individuals looking to apply for ILR or to settle in the UK.
