    Frequently Asked Questions

    The Spouse Visa route allows a foreign partner to stay in the UK with their British or settled spouse for up to 30 months. If you have been living in the UK on a Spouse Visa, you must seek an extension or an alternative visa route in order to stay in the country once it expires.

    The benefit of extending your Spouse Visa is that you are one step closer to a permanent immigration status. By racking up five years of continuous residence, the doors will be opened to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) which then leads on to British citizenship.

    The requirements for the extension are similar to the original application you filled, only you will need to prove that you are still in a genuine relationship, that you live together and intend on doing so in the future and that you are still able to meet the financial requirements.

    To eliminate the risk of heartbreak and separation, it is best to seek an immigration advisor who will walk through the process with you. Our immigration solicitors in Winchester will verify your application, giving you peace of mind through what is normally a stressful and time-consuming ordeal.

    There are numerous types of Tier 1 visas that you may be eligible to apply for.

    These are:

    Each visa has a unique set of immigration requirements. Typically with Tier 1 routes, its requirements are the most stringent and require the heaps of paperwork from applicants above any other visa route.

    This is because they are highly specialised and restrictive routes. For example, you must be able to invest at least £2 million into a British business to qualify as an investor whereas you need £50,000 to be eligible for an Innovator Visa. Exceptional Talent or Exceptional Promise applicants must be world leaders or budding world leaders in either science, engineering, arts, fashion, digital technology or medicine.

    Our expert team of immigration lawyers in Winchester are fully equipped to handle your application on your behalf. Your personally assigned lawyer will ensure that you are eligible and will go above and beyond to secure the right documents and evidence to accompany your application. He or she will organise your supporting evidence and guide you through every step if you choose to book for an Application session.

    You can absolutely study in the UK as an international student. We have some of the most prestigious and highly acclaimed universities in the world for you to choose from.

    You will need to apply for either a full Student Visa or a Student Visitor Visa, depending on how long you intend on studying in the UK. Before you begin, however, you must first obtain an offer from a registered UK university, school or educational facility.

    To aid you towards your goal of securing the best education, our IAS lawyers will check if your chosen educational body is registered and able to host international students. IAS immigration lawyers in Winchester will liaise with your prospective institution as well as the Home Office when organising your sponsorship. Your lawyer will also verify your identity and supporting evidence to maximise your chances of success.

    If you are worried that you fall short of some of the requirements, your IAS lawyer will talk through your concerns and will agonise over every minor detail to ensure your final application is of the highest standard. You may also wish to discuss the possibility of extending your Student Visa into the Post-Study Work route after you graduate.
