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. 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.

How can IAS help you get your Fiance(e) Visa?

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.

If you would like to know more or to start your application, call us free on 0333 363 8577 or make an enquiry online.

FAQs

fiance visa cost

What does a Fiance Visa UK cost?

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.

What are the Fiance Visa requirements?

Similar to other partner visas, the Fiance Visa UK requirements include:

  • A minimum income requirement of £18,600. The Home Office will only take the UK sponsor’s income into consideration.
  • Proof of adequate accommodation.
  • The couple must have met before.
  • The applicant must have proof of English Language ability.
  • You have enough funds to support yourself without public support.

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.

What if I am not staying in the UK for longer than six months after the ceremony?

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.

What services does IAS offer?

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.

Our services include:

  • consulting with you in person, via phone or Skype at a time that suits your schedule;
  • assessing your eligibility for the Fiance or Proposed Civil Partner Visa;
  • reviewing your documents to ensure that they are sufficient;
  • providing you with a personal Letter of Representation. This is submitted with your application and provides the merits of your case as well as relevant immigration law that may support it;
  • liaising with the Home Office until a decision is reached;
  • completing each part of your application form to an expert standard.
