The Spouse Visa is also known as a marriage visa is one of the settlement visas that allow the applicant to join their partner to settle in the UK. The applicant is eligible to work on this visa but cannot claim any benefits. If you want to apply under the spouse visa then your partner needs to be a British citizen or must be settled in the UK. In case the applicants are applying as an unmarried partner then the applicant must provide proof that they have lived with each other for at least two years. In case you or your partner was married in the past then you need evidence of separation from the previous relationship like a divorce certificate.
The Spouse Visa category allows the applicant to be eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) and finally British Citizenship. The main requirement of the Spouse Visa is evidence of a genuine relationship with the spouse.
The British national must be earning a minimum of £18,600 per annum OR alternatively, you have £62,500 in savings for the last 6 months OR the British national is claiming PIPS or Carer allowance than its different calculations.
You must show sufficient accommodation for the both of you to reside in the UK. We have to do a housing inspection report which is a mandatory requirement.
This requirement seems straightforward, however, in reality, it is the most sensitive requirement as we shall have to provide sufficient documentation and substantiate in our legal representations how you both satisfy this requirement.
