Fiancé Visa - Can I Apply For A Job?

The fiancé visa allows prospective fiancés to enter the UK in order to marry their proposed spouse. The visa offers a limit of 6 months for the marriage to take place after which the spouse can then apply for a spouse visa which allows them to live and work in the UK for up to 30 months. These 30 months can be extended and will, if successful, take the visa holder over 5 years and allow them to be eligible for indefinite leave to remain.

Working

You will not be able to work while on a fiancé visa and your proposed spouse must be able to prove that they are able to provide for both of you. There are also other eligibility criteria that need to be satisfied, but the lack of ability to work means that people often use the fiancé visa just to come for the wedding so that they can work once they are on the spouse visa.

Eligibility;

  • The fiancé visa comes with stringent conditions and eligibility criteria as laid out below;
  • You and your proposed spouse must have met
  • You must intend to live together
  • You must get married within 6 months of entering the country
  • You and your partner must be able to self-support and documentary evidence may be required

Strictness

The visa route is strict as it is traditionally one of the more abused routes into the UK. This helps to ensure that applicants are genuine and offers a good route for genuine couples looking to marry and settle in the UK. As long as the criteria are satisfied then the application process should be straightforward. We can help with the application process ensuring that your application is carefully put together to ensure that it is compliant with the relevant requirements and we can also manage the documentary evidence side ensuring that the application is completed as required.

In Conclusion

The fiancé visa is very useful in the specific circumstance of a couple getting married and looking to settle in the UK. It makes the process easy and allows you and your spouse to get married in the UK itself and being able to settle all of the wedding plans before your big day.

The way they dealt with my case during COVID19 Situation is highly appreciable. I would definitely recommend Joe D. and Anna F. Anna is an amazing lady, her patience is beyond my words.

"Anna Foley was the lawyer helping my partner obtain an EEA EFM visa. She was outstanding. Handling the case with constant correspondence over a lengthy, lockdown delayed 7-month application process. Her expert advice guided us successfully through some difficult times as a result of COVID-19. Some of the best service I have received for any service ever! Often replying to emails late at night, offering to send additional correspondence to the home office and going above and beyond in handling our case! Well done and thank you Reiss Edwards and thank you Anna!!".

"Professional service. I was very impressed with the fact that my ILR application was successful 6 weeks after the submission amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. I also think the portfolio put together by the team at Reiss Edwards has played a big part in the quick turnaround of my application".
