What are the UK Spouse Visa Requirements?
To be eligible, you must satisfy the following requirements:
- Your partner must hold British Citizenship or an Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR);
- You and your partner must intend to live together permanently;
- You must have already met your partner in person;
- You must provide evidence of legal marriage;

How to apply for a UK Spouse Visa?
To apply for a Spouse Visa, you must complete the relevant application forms.
If you are already in the UK on a different visa, you may be able to adjust your status. If you are outside the UK, you must submit your Spouse Visa application to the Home Office among your supporting evidence. This must include paperwork pertaining to your marriage, to prove that your relationship is genuine.
You will also be required to provide documentation relating to your financial situation. If you have any dependent children under the age of 18, you should make a separate application for them. This must be submitted at the same time as you make your application.
How to apply for a Spouse Visa Extension?
The UK Spouse visa is initially granted for a 30 months period. If you are still married to your British partner and you still meet the other visa requirements, you can apply for a visa extension.
A Spouse Visa Renewal will be issued for a further period of 30 months. Eventually, you may stay in the UK until you qualify for an Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR).
If you have dependent children, you may need to also apply for a renewal of their status. In this case, you must send a separate application for their visa extensions.
