To submit a valid UK Spouse Visa application, you must be able to meet the following requirements:

Your Relationship

  • You and your partner should both be at least 18 years of age.
  • You must be married, and your marriage must be valid under UK law. If you are unmarried then you must have been living together in a relationship for at least 2 years;
  • The marriage must be genuine and subsisting
  • You and your partner have met in person

Financial Requirements

It is important to meet the minimum level of income and saving requirements for you and your spouse. You need to ensure that you meet the income or savings criteria. If you are applying from outside the UK, then only the British citizen’s income can be considered. But if you are applying from within the UK, then joint income can be considered. The minimum amount of income should be £18,600 and this would increase if you have children.

The English Language Requirement

The applicant needs to ensure that they meet the English language requirement. This can be satisfied if they are from an English-speaking country, have taken an approved English language test or have a degree taught in English.
