The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
If you are currently living in the UK on a Spouse or Civil Partner Visa, you can apply for a UK spouse visa extension after 30 months. You can do this by submitting an FLR (M) form application to the Home Office.
In order to be eligible for a Spouse Visa Extension, you will need to ensure that you still meet the same requirements that you met when you were granted your original Spouse Visa. The Spouse Visa requirements are strict and your extension application may require you to show such changes as an improvement in English language skill.
Contact us today on 0333 363 8577 or use our online enquiry form to speak with a qualified immigration lawyer who can help you with your extension application. Your personal lawyer will make sure your application meets the standard expected for a renewal of your Spouse or Partner Visa.
In order to extend your Spouse Visa, you must meet the following requirements:
Changes to the Home Office Immigration Rules mean that some people who did not originally have to meet the English Language requirement in their application for a Spouse Visa may now have to satisfy this part of the application in order for their Spouse Visa renewal to be approved. This affects any applicants whose “leave to remain as a partner” expired on or after 1st May 2017.
If you make a UK spouse visa extension application that is unsuccessful for any reason, you will have 14 days from the date you received your decision letter to appeal to the First Tier Tribunal.
If you submit an appeal after this deadline of 14 days, you will need to explain why your appeal was late.
It will then be down to the First Tier Tribunal to decide if they will hear your case.
We have a number of lawyers with specialist experience in appealing to the First Tier Tribunal. If you need help with your appeal, get in touch with us today.
If you are submitting a Spouse Visa extension application and have any doubts about any part of the process, it is important to get expert advice. Our immigration lawyers are here to help guide and advise you.
