Eligibility Criteria for the UK Partner Visa

7개월 전

The UK Partner Visa allows married partners of UK citizens to immigrate to the UK because they are married to someone who is settled in the UK. If you have a partner visa, then you are allowed to study or work in the UK. You can apply for the partner visa both outside and inside the UK as of your choice and depending on your situation and where you are currently. If you are already in the UK on a fiancé visa, work visa, or student visa that is valid for more than six months, you may be able to switch to a partner visa.
The average processing time for the UK Partner Visa is 2 to 12 weeks and they may vary depending on the date you submit the application to the UK home office and the country where are you applying from. To qualify for the partner visa, you must meet these requirements without fail:
• You must meet the English language requirements
• You and your partner must meet the minimum age requirements (generally 18)
• You must have an accommodation for your partner and other dependents
• You must have legally married (submit your marriage certification)
• Your partner who is currently in the UK should earn £18,600 per year or have enough savings to support you. The financial limit may increase if you are bringing children along with you
• You must intend to live together
• You should not access public funds
If you satisfy these requirements, you will be granted the partner visa. The partner visa is valid for 33 months or 30 months depending whether you are applying from outside UK or inside UK. If your partner visa is going to expire and you want to stay in the UK for some more time, you can apply for extending your partner visa. The partner visa’s extension period is additional 30 months. If your extension period is also going to expire and you want to stay in the UK for some more years, you can now apply for ILR visa rather than another extension, as you have spent 5 years in the UK.
