UK Fiance Visa

What do I need to know about the Fiance visa?

If you are a Non-EEA fiancé or proposed civil partner of a British Citizen or a person with settled status in the UK, you will need to obtain a Fiancé Visa in order to travel to the UK and get married or undertake a civil partnership ceremony. Your application needs to be made outside of the UK and you will need to marry your fiancé or register your civil partnership within six months of your arrival. You may then apply to switch into the Spouse Visa or Civil Partner Visa category in order to stay in the UK.

What visa do I require if I wish to have my ceremony in the UK?

If you wish to get married in the UK but do not intend to reside in the UK for more than six months then you will need to apply for a Standard Visitor Visa for marriage or civil partnership, however, there will be no option to switch categories on this type of Visa.

What other options are there for partners who do not wish to get married just yet?

The Unmarried Partner visa category is for long term partners of British citizens or persons with indefinite leave to remain in the UK, who wish to join, or stay with their partner in the UK.  You can also apply if your partner is outside the UK, but intending to return to the UK with you.
