The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
An Unmarried Partner Visa allows non-EEA nationals to enter the UK provided they are in a genuine, long-term, committed relationship with a British Citizen. This visa type is also commonly known as a UK De facto Visa and can be applied for in cases of both heterosexual and homosexual relationships.
Depending on where you are applying from, the duration of an Unmarried Partner Visa changes. If your application is made from within the UK, the visa will be issued for a period of 30 months. However, if your application is made from outside the UK, the length of the visa will initially be issued for a period of 33 months.
IAS can help you attain your Unmarried Partner Visa, De facto Visa or Same-Sex Partner Visa. We will ensure that you qualify for this type of visa and one of our highly-qualified immigration lawyers will make sure that you have the required evidence to prove that your relationship is genuine to the Home Office. Applications for Unmarried Partner Visas are regularly rejected because they do not provide enough proof that the relationship is genuine or long-lasting. We can oversee your application and liaise with the Home Office until a decision on your application is reached. Your lawyer will also prepare a Letter of Representation to accompany your Unmarried Partner Visa application. This will include details on your case and relevant immigration laws in support of your application. With IAS, your chances of a successful application for an Unmarried Partner Visa will be maximised. Get in touch with the team to today to discuss your application.
