UK Spouse visa

The UK spouse visa is a family-based settlement visa that gives the holder the freedom to work or study in the UK。The applicant's partner must already be a British citizen or have permanent residence in the UK。

Spouse visa application can be divided into 3 stages:

  • 首簽

Stay for two and a half years

  • 續簽

Applicants can extend their visa validity by 30 months (two and a half years), which will increase your total stay in the UK to five years。

  • Turn to stay permanently

B. Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) b. Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)。

There are generally two types of spouse visa applications:

  • Married couples or same-sex couples

  • Unmarried but have lived together for at least 2 years

Relationship requirements for spouse visa

  • Both parties must be 18 years of age or above at the time of application

  • For all applicants, their relationship with a British or resident sponsor (i.e. the applicant's significant other) must be "real" and "existing"。Applicants must voluntarily provide evidence of their relationship, such as:

1. Evidence of correspondence between the couple (texts and social media chats, emails exchanged, etc.)

2. Travel documents evidencing their mutual visits

3. Photos of the couple from when they met, dating and now (it is recommended to briefly summarize each photo and be sure to include a variety of photos from different stages of the couple's life)

4. Marriage certificate or civil relationship certificate (for couples already married or in a civil relationship)

Capital requirements

  • Applicants need to have enough money to support themselves while living in the UK without claiming public benefits。This means that applicants must meet minimum income requirements to be approved for a spouse visa unless they fall under certain exemption categories。

If there are no dependent children, the sponsor (i.e. the other half of the applicant) who is British or permanent resident in the UK must have an annual income (before tax) of at least £18,600

Scenario 2: If children are involved, the cost increases by £3,800 for the first child and £2,400 for each subsequent child。Therefore, the requirements for financial proof are completely different depending on the family structure. Only when the corresponding financial requirements are met, can you apply for a visa。

If the minimum income requirement is not met, the applicant and sponsor can also use "savings" to replace the shortfall, which should be kept in a bank account for at least 6 months to meet the requirement。
