Family (Unmarried Partner) Visa
If you want to join your partner in the UK and you are not a citizen of either the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you will need a ‘Family of a Settled Person’ visa.
First, you will need to show that your partner is:
- a British citizen
- has settled in the UK
- has asylum or humanitarian protection in the UK
You must then meet the eligibility requirements and prove that you and your partner are 18 or over and in a genuine partnership. You will also have to meet the financial requirements for yourself and for any child or children that you have. Out immigration experts will be able to tell you exactly how much that is.
To qualify for this visa, you must also prove:
- you have been living together in a relationship for 2 years. You will need documentary evidence to show your relationship is genuine and ongoing.
- you intend to continue living with your partner in the UK after you apply
- you and your partner and any children will have an adequate place to live in the UK
- you have a good knowledge of English
Your UK partner visa application might be refused if, for example, you have got a criminal record or provided false or incomplete information to the Home Office.

The UK partner visa allows you to work or study in the UK but you will not have access to any public funds. Your initial stay will be 33 months and, depending on your future circumstances, you will be able to extend your visa and settle in the UK permanently.
