The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
A Fiance Visa UK can be used by the partner of a British citizen or person with settled status to enter the UK to get married. The Fiance Visa requirements include passing a ‘genuine relationship test’, meeting the minimum income requirement and showing adequate accommodation for your stay.
The Fiance Visa UK can be granted for up to six months. You must intend to marry in this time and can then switch to a Spouse or Civil Partner Visa after the ceremony. This will allow you to stay in the UK with your British partner indefinitely and, in the future, to settle permanently. You will not be able to work on this visa type so you will also need to prove that you can support yourself without public funds.
The team at IAS understand the importance of applying for a Fiance Visa to start your life in the UK. With our services, your personal immigration lawyer will work with you to maximise the strength of your case before completing your application forms and organising your evidence.

Applications from outside the UK will cost £1,523. For those applying in-country, a Fiance Visa application costs £1,033 or £1,643 with the Premium Service.
If you are applying with children, this charge will also increase with each dependent child.
Similar to other partner visas, the Fiance Visa UK requirements include:
If you are concerned you do not meet any of these requirements, our expert lawyers will be able to advise you on the alternative ways you can prove that you are eligible for a UK Fiance(e) Visa.
If you would like to marry in the UK but are not planning to settle here permanently, the Marriage Visitor Visa route will be more relevant to your needs. This falls under the Standard Visitor Visa route and will allow you to enter the UK for up to six months to get married.
Unlike the Fiance Visa, Marriage Visitors cannot apply for a Spouse or Civil Partner Visa once the ceremony has taken place.
A Fiance Visa lasts for six months in total, from the date of issue. During this time, you must get married to your fiance. Once you are married, you can remain in the UK for as long as your Fiance Visa is valid (for example, if you had a wedding two months after the date of issue, you could remain in the UK for four month months after the wedding).
If you want to stay in the UK after this time, the married partner of the British citizen must apply for a Marriage Visa UK, also known as a Spouse Visa.
When applying for a Fiance Visa UK or a Proposed Civil Partner Visa, it is very important that you fill your application out properly and are able to prove the legitimacy of your relationship. Many people who apply for Fiance or Proposed Civil Partner Visas have their applications refused because they are unable to do this properly and the Home Office do not believe their intentions or relationship are genuine.
We know how daunting this can be and, as a result, we make it our responsibility to guide you through each step of the application process.
