What happens after I get married in the UK, do I need to return back?

The main advantage with a Fiancé visa, the visa allows the applicant to get married with their Spouse/Partner in the UK and gives them the right to continue to remain or stay in the UK upon applying for a Spouse visa application to the Home Office from inside the UK. This means the applicant is not required to return back to their home country and be overseas to apply for entry clearance to re-enter the UK in the Spouse visa category. This category allows the fiance visa applicant to settle in the UK. 

How long does the Process Take?

On average it can take between 6 weeks for an Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) to consider your application and documents before reaching a decision on your visa application  In some case it can be longer and each case is considered in its individual merits. In some cases it can take a lot quicker depending on the case work at the respective British High Commission, Embassy or Consultant.

Do I need to pay for the Immigration Health Surcharge?

All applicant (s) need to pay the UK NHS Surcharge, which is a separate fee from the visa application fee. The Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) covers the initial period of the length of the visa.

What happens if I am the Sponsor in the UK and not working or am no benefits, can I still apply?

You may still be able to meet the requirements if you are not working or are on benefits or have sufficient savings to satisfy the financial requirements. You may still apply if you can show your separation to join your proposed Spouse/Partner in the UK, would be a breach of human rights and you are unable to continue your relationship from outside the UK.

How long is my Visa Valid For?

Your initial visa will be valid for 6 months allowing you to get married with your Spouse/Partner within this time period. Once you get married you will be eligible to apply for a UK Spouse visa from inside the UK, on the basis of your marriage

Does this visa Lead to Settlement?

The Fiancé Visa is valid for 6 months allowing the applicant to get married in the UK. Once you get married this will give the applicant under the Immigration rules the right to apply for a Spouse visa from inside the UK. If your Spouse visa application is successful, you will be issued with a Spouse visa for 2.5 years and then will need to apply for a further extension in this category and then allowing you to apply for indefinite leave to remain in the UK.

What happens if my application is refused?

If your application is unsuccessful and has been refused by an Entry Clearance Officer, you will be given a right of appeal to challenge and lodge an appeal against the decision to refuse your visa to the UK.
