Fiancée Visa is the most difficult UK visa to obtain. It is immigration visa that allow the applicant to live permanently in the UK. For this reason, the authorities check the documents more attentively. Here, the partners must prove their relationship even if the marriage is already registered officially.
Fiancée Visa allows the applicant to come to the UK for up to 6 months and register a marriage. After the marriage is registered the applicant should apply for a Settlement Spouse Visa in the UK. Fiancée Visa does not allow the person to work in the UK.
The applicant must demonstrate that the UK sponsor (fiancé) has sufficient income. The UK sponsor must meet the financial requirement which is £18,600 where the applicant has no children, £22,400 with one child, £24,800 with two children, £27,200 with three children and so on. If the UK sponsor does not meet the requirement and their salary is less than the amount needed, there is a possibility of showing savings in a bank account that meets the financial requirement. The particular amount of savings depends on income, and the funds must be kept in the bank account for 6 months. We can count the specific amount for you and consult you on the matter. If the UK sponsor does not have a regular income in the form of salary, they can meet the financial requirement by showing the amount upward of £62,500 has been kept in the bank account for 6 months or more.
The UK sponsor (fiancé) must occupy their accommodation solely and exclusively. If he/she rents accommodation in a shared house/apartment, then they must have a personal bathroom. If he/she lives at the accommodation with relatives, the accommodation must have enough bedrooms for everyone living at the accommodation and all the relatives should give permission for the applicant to live at the accommodation with the sponsor. We will consult you on your accommodation conditions and check if you meet all the necessary requirements.
The applicant and the UK sponsor (fiancé) must have communicated with each other for at least a 1 year after the first personal meeting. They must have met each other several times before the applicant applies for a Fiancée Visa. The UK Embassy does not consider online meetings as proof of a relationship. Meeting online and talking for a year while only having 1 or 2 personal meetings and deciding to get married, would not be enough for a visa.
The applicant should prove she knows English. It is necessary to pass an individual English test – IELTS life skills at level A1.
If it is essential for you to register your marriage in the UK, then you should choose Fiancée Visa. Otherwise, Fiancée Visa is not profitable. This type of visa is given for only 6 months, and then the applicant needs to apply for a Settlement Spouse Visa in the UK. The visa fees are the same and the lists of documents are also the same for both types of visa. This means that the applicant would collect the documents twice and pay the visa fees twice in 6 months. It is more profitable to register your marriage outside the UK and apply for a Settlement Spouse Visa in the applicant’s home country. The Settlement Spouse Visa is given for 2.5 years at a time.
If your documents are not in English, you will need to send a certified translation.
