REQUIREMENTS FOR UNMARRIED PARTNER VISA UK

However, please note that two years of living together in a relationship akin to a marriage is not an automatic qualification. Some requirements must be satisfied before an Applicant can succeed under this route.

  • The Applicant must not be in the UK as a visitor and must have entered the UK legally on a visa granted for more than six months.
  • The documentary evidence as set out in Appendix FM must be satisfied.
  • The Applicant must satisfy the English language requirement.
  • The financial requirement as set out in Appendix FM must be satisfied.
  • Evidence of adequate accommodation must be produced.
  • The documentary evidence proves that both of you have been in a relationship akin to marriage for two years or more must be produced.

UK UNMARRIED PARTNER VISA PROCESSING TIME

The Immigration caseworkers can always use their discretion to decide if they need to request more documents to support the required documents or even refuse the Application entirely. When such happens, there is always a reason why they would request further documents. From our experience, it usually occurs when most Applicants decide to file the Application by themselves without the help of professionals. Unfortunately, the consequence always erases the intended savings because the Application fees would be paid twice if the Application is refused; usually, the Applicants always at this stage decide to approach Immigration specialists to pay for their services instead of repeating the risk.

However, if the application is submitted through the Premium service, it is placed in front of the queue and decision tend to be made quicker. But if the application is submitted through the standard process, it usually take 30 days. But note that if further documents are requested, it may take longer or the visa can even be refused altogether.
