How to apply for a UK Fiance Visa: step by step

Are you thinking of applying for a Fiance visa or just interested to learn more about how to apply for this visa?

This easy to understand step by step guide simplifies the Fiance Visa application process and is especially useful for those who are looking to submit their Fiance visa themselves along with our “Do Your Own Partner Visa” service.

Before we begin….

So, what is a Fiance Visa?

A UK Fiance Visa allows the applicant entry to the UK for a period of 6 months to marry their Fiance in the UK. The UK Fiance must be British or ‘present and settled’ (we’ll discuss this in more detail later).

If you are not sure that the UK Fiance Visa is the right visa to be applying for then we recommend you read our “Which partner visa should I apply for?” guide first.

Appendix FM sets out the requirements to be met for entry clearance as a partner. These are:

  • The person applying (applicant) must be outside the UK
  • The person applying must have a valid application for entry clearance
  • The person applying must not fall for refusal under any suitability grounds
  • The person applying must meet all of the eligibility requirements
