Spouse Visa -Every year during the holiday season, many UK citizens travel to Pakistan, Bangladesh, India and other non-EU countries to get married. If this is you, then congratulations on your upcoming big day!
Once married you’ll no doubt want to bring your spouse back to the UK, but to do this you’ll need to navigate your way round the UK’s immigration rules. The rules can be a little tricky and you will have to learn exactly what to do to make sure your application for a visa isn’t refused.
You certainly don’t want a lovesick spouse waiting for you thousands of miles away in another country!
While they’re often thought of as being a ‘spouse visa’, the actual visa your spouse or fiancé needs to live in the UK will depend on your situation. There are many reasons which can affect your application for visa such as income, savings, living accommodation, dependency on benefits, number of children and so on.
Getting specialist immigration advice to apply for a visa for your spouse is recommended by the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) if your application is rejected. This is sensible advice from CAB, but MLC Immigration Lawyers recommends that you engage with a good quality specialist immigration adviser before you apply to give you best possible chance of securing a visa for your spouse.
