Pave the Way to Your ‘I Do’: Complete Guide to UK Fiancé Visa

Preparing for your happily-ever-after in the UK? Let Immtell simplify the process of obtaining a UK fiancé visa, making your journey to the altar smoother and less stressful.

What is a UK Fiancé Visa?

A UK fiancé visa allows non-residential individuals engaged to a UK citizen or permanent resident to enter the UK and get married within six months of arrival. The journey of a lifetime begins with understanding the application process to apply for a fiancé visa to the UK.

How to Apply for a Fiancé Visa in the UK

Applying for a fiancé visa in the UK involves several steps, from gathering the necessary documents to proving the authenticity of your relationship. These steps can seem overwhelming, but that’s where Immtell steps in.

Our expert consultants are ready to guide you through every step of your fiancé visa application. We help you understand the requirements, gather necessary documentation, and compile a persuasive application to heighten your chances of securing a UK fiancé visa.

The criteria for a UK fiancé visa are notably rigorous, with the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) possessing minimal flexibility for discretion. Hence, it is absolutely crucial that applications for UK fiancé visas are meticulously prepared and executed to the letter.

The key UK fiancé visa requirements:

You must apply for the fiancé visa from outside of the UK
You and your fiancé must be 18 years old or over
You must plan to live together permanently
Your fiancé is either present and settled in the United Kingdom (British Citizen or holds ILR), or will arrive with you to be admitted for settlement
You intend to marry your fiancé within 6 months or arrival in the UK;
Any of your or your fiancés previous relationships (married or unmarried) must have ended
Adequate accommodation arranged for you and any dependants, and you will be able to maintain yourselves and any dependents without the need of UK public funds
Your fiancé earns more than £18,600 per year or has enough savings to be able to support you without claiming public funds. If you have dependent children, the minimum financial requirement is higher. Please use our easy to use free Appendix FM maintenance requirement calculator to confirm the amount you will be required to show
You must satisfy the English language requirement, Level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR)


If approved, initial UK fiancé visas are usually granted for 6 months. After entering into a marriage or civil partnership, you must apply to switch into a UK marriage visa or civil partner visa from within the UK.

Following 5 years continuous residence holding either a spouse or civil partner visa (i.e. after the initial 6-month fiancé visa), you may qualify for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in the UK, effectively permanent residence providing all the requirements are met at that time.

Children under the age of 18 may apply for visas to accompanying their parents as dependants. They may apply for their visas at the same time as the parent applying for a UK fiancé visa.

UKVI aim to process fiancé visas as follows:

Visa applications submitted outside of the UK:

  • Standard processing: 90 working days
  • Priority Service processing: 30 working days


Important: UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) do not guarantee processing times and delays do occur. We advise that you do not book any non refundable travel until your visa has been approved and your work visa is in your possession.  Priority services can be suspended without notice and may not be available at the time of application.

The UKVI application fee for a fiancé visa is £1,538. In addition, you will need to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) which is £624 to cover the initial 6 month visa duration.

Our professional fee will depend on the level of service you require. Please see the options below or contact us for further information.
