Apply for a partner visa today
Applicants can apply for a family visa to live with their spouse or partner if they have a genuine and subsisting relationship with a person who is settled in the UK. A settled person includes a British Citizen, an EU national or a person with Indefinite Leave to Remain status.


If applicants and their partner meet the eligibility criteria, they will be granted a 2.5 years visa. If they continue to meet the rules, they can apply to extend their visa for a further 2.5 years. They will be eligible to apply for citizenship directly after completing 5 years continuous residence as a partner.

This route is for those seeking to enter or remain in the UK based on their family life with their partner who is a British Citizen or a person who is settled in the UK.


For this category, “partner” is recognised as someone who is:  


  • The applicant’s spouse
  • The applicant’s civil partner
  • The applicant’s fiancé(e) or proposed civil partner or
  • A person who has been living together with the applicant in a relationship akin to a marriage or civil partnership for at least two years prior to the date of application


Requirements for applying for entry clearance as a partner:

There are several requirements that applicants will need to meet in order to be granted entry clearance to the UK as a spouse.


A core part of this application is to prove the relationship between the applicant and their settled partner is genuine and subsisting and they intend to live together in the UK. If the couple are not married, this can require extensive documentary evidence to show that they have been in a relationship akin to marriage for at least 2 years.


All applicants will be required to demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the English Language and adequate accommodation.


Experts at Astons Law provide compressive advice on the requirements for a partner visa and all the required documentary evidence you will need to gather based on your specific circumstances.
