Also commonly referred to as a UK Marriage Visa, the UK Spouse Visa allows spouses (married partners) of UK citizens or permanent UK residents to apply to enter or stay in the UK because they are married to a person who is considered to be present and ‘settled in the UK’. ‘Settled in the UK’ means that you are ordinarily resident in the UK with no immigration restrictions on your length of stay.

If your application for a UK Spouse Visa is successful you will be able to work or study in the UK as soon as you’re Spouse Visa has been granted.
