Thanks for your question.
Your Boyfriend can make an application for a Tier 1 General Visa, however, he will need to fulfill all of the criteria set out in the Immigration Rules.
The easiest option is either a Fiancee Visa or an Unmarried Partners Visa.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.
If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.
Hi thanks for above but I didnt think you can work on a fiance visa? If we have not lived together (although spendt time together in uk and spain) can we still get an unmarried partner visa? and if so can he work with that?
On a Fiancee Visa, you must get married within 6 months, thereafter, he will be granted a Spouse Visa and he will be allowed to work.
For an Unmarried Partners Visa, you would have had to lhave lived to gether for a period before making your application, therefore, this option would npt be available if you have not lived together.
I hope this helps.
