What does the UK Spouse Visa processing time involve?
There are several different factors involved when UKVI reviews you Spouse Visa application.
When you submit your application, it will be passed on to an assigned immigration officer. This can take a chunk off the Spouse Visa processing time.
Once an immigration officer has received your application, your application will be reviewed and processed.
During the Spouse Visa processing time, the officer will check:
- Your application details
- Supporting documents
- Evidence of your relationship
- Financial details
- Details of your accommodation arrangements
They will be very thorough with this, particularly when it comes to checking whether your relationship is genuine.
The application may then be passed onto a second party, to be reviewed.
After this, a decision will be reached on your application and you will receive a letter of acceptance or rejection from UKVI via post.
