UK Spouse Visa 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.
