What are the main requirements?
In order to enter the UK as a marriage or civil partnership visitor, an applicant must demonstrate that:
How long can I stay and what are the conditions of my stay?
Applicants can apply to come to the UK for a period of up to six months and are required to leave the UK at the end of this time. There is no option to extend this visa from within the UK.
Applicants should not intend to live in the UK for extended periods through frequent or successive visits under this route or to make the UK their main home. Applications can be refused if an immigration officer believes that this is the case.
During their stay in the UK as a marriage or civil partnership visitor the applicant will be unable to work and study is restricted to 30 days.
