The requirements of a Spouse visa/Unmarried Partner/Civil Partner visa!

THE 5 YEAR PERIOD – Initial Visa for 30 months

  • Suitability
  • Relationship
  • Immigration Status
  • Financial Situation

In the circumstances where the above requirements are met and you are placed on the 5 year route to settlement, then you should be given an initial visa for a period of 30 months.

However, should you not meet all of the requirements, but you meet the suitability requirement and you if fall into one of the categories in the exceptions, then you may be granted a visa as part of the 10 year route to settlement.

    thumb Theo Taylor
  • review rating 5  I contacted Whitehorse Blackmans Solicitors as I needed help with my British Citizenship application. I was thoroughly and patiently guided through the maze of the questions I had by Mudassir over the phone, followed by an appointment at their office. Everyone at the office were so lovely, welcoming and helpful. Having had horrid experience with immigration solicitors in London before, I was so pleasantly surprised at Mudassir’s efficiency and commitment to his work. Everything went incredibly fast, with my application being ready and sent off within a week. I am so thrilled to say that I received my British citizenship a few days ago! The entire process took less than two months, mainly thanks to Mudassir’s incredible efficiency and organised hard work. His work was also complimented by the lady at the Biometrics office, letting me know that my documents were uploaded in such an incredibly organised and proper manner, allowing them to move forward quicker and send my case off to the Home Office on the same day, speeding up the process considerably. All I have to say is a massive thank you to Mudassir for his fantastic work. I highly recommend him and Whiterose Blackmans Excellent experience *****
