UK Spouse Visa

UK spouse visa is a type of UK visa which can be filed only by the applicants who are married/committed to or in a relationship with a British Citizen or a settled person on PR visa. UK Spouse visas are sometimes mentioned as UK spousal visa, UK marriage visa (as these terms are related to the word marriage) and at times even UK wife visa or UK husband.

A non- EEA(Economic European area) national can register for a spouse settlement visa to unite with their partner who is already a British Citizen or settled person. This is a settlement visa and the initial entry clearance takes around 33 months. The applicant must be a non-EU/EEA national who is married to a British citizen or person settled in the UK on PR visa. The sponsor must be British citizen or individual who has attained indefinite leave to remain (ILR) and wants to invite their spouse as well to the UK.
