Apply for Fiance Visa: Who is Eligible to Apply for Fiance Visa or Marriage Visa

“UK Family Visas” refers to a broad category of UK visas that allow family members to live together in the UK.

Family visa requirements vary widely. For family members of British citizens and those who have settled in the UK and want to travel with or join them, various types of visas are available. Spouse and partner visas, proposed civil partner/fiance visas, and child-dependent visas are some.

There are various requirements, application procedures, and prices involved with each of these categories. To apply for a fiance visa in this category, the UK relative must typically serve as a “sponsor” for the non-UK relative. Certain family work visas allow family members to settle in the UK and can be used to get Indefinite Leave to Stay (ILR).
