1. Unmarried Partner Route

This route is more flexible and serves couples in substantial relationships without marriage.

2. Fiancé Visas

This visa caters to individuals planning to marry their British or settled partner in the UK. They also have the option to switch to the Spouse route without leaving the UK.

3. Spouse Visa

This visa is suitable for married couples intending permanent settlements.

4. Marriage Visit Visa

This visa is ideal for people planning to marry in the UK but have no intention of being permanent UK residents. It facilitates:

  • Notifying marriage intention
  • Registering the marriage or civil partnership
  • Accompanying ceremonies within the UK

Please note that you are expected to leave the UK once the marriage ceremony is over under this visa. However, marriage visit visa holders do not have the option to switch to other partner visas while staying in the UK.

Contrarily, people considering a long-term stay should review the visas under Appendix FM to select UK settlement routes, each serving diverse relationship circumstances. Additionally, the individual’s relationship status and financial stability should be considered when determining the appropriate visa.
