If you want to apply for a UK family visa as a fiancé, fiancée or proposed civil partner, call our Fiancé(e) visa solicitor in London on 0203 417 3700.

Whether you want to apply for a Fiancé(e) visa from outside the UK or want to switch from a Fiancé(e) to a spouse visa within the UK, our solicitors can help.

What is a Fiancé(e) visa UK?

The Fiancé(e) visa allows individuals to come to the UK to marry their partner, who must be a British citizen or settled person (someone with indefinite leave to remain or permanent residence in the UK). The visa is granted for six months and does not allow the holder to work in the UK.

After getting married or entering into a civil partnership within six months, the individual can then apply for further leave to remain in the UK based on their marriage or civil partnership. This often involves applying for a spouse visa, which allows the individual to live and work in the UK for a longer period.
