#1 UK Fiancé Visa Immigration Lawyers.
A UK fiancé visa, also a known a prospective marriage visa, allows you to bring your fiancé to the UK. If you are planning to get married to a partner who, either has a British Citizenship or is a permanent resident in the UK, or has refugee or humanitarian status, you can apply for entry clearance as a fiancé visa. The earliest you can apply is 3 months before you wish to travel. This application can only be made from outside the UK.
A Fiancé visa is valid for 6 months, you can apply for a visa extension as the spouse of a UK citizen which will be granted for 2 years and 9 months after you marry in the UK.
After completion of 5 years’ continuous stay on a spouse visa, you become eligible to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (also known as permanent residence) in the UK and then subsequently apply for British Citizenship.
Two things are very important to understand once you have been granted a fiancé visa.
1. You have six months to get married from the time the visa is granted.
2. Whilst here in the UK on a UK fiancé visa you cannot work in the UK. However, you can start work once you are married and the fiancé visa has been changed to a spouse visa
