Hi,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

From the information you have provided above, I would suggest that your partner make an application for a Fiancee Visa.

 

In order to make an application for a Fiancee Visa, your partner will need to show:

 

  • they currently live and are settled in the UK, or
  • they are coming to live permanently in the UK, and
  • they are not under 21

I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.

 

If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.

 

Kind regards,

Hi,

 

Your partner will need to make an application for settlement of Application Form VAF4A. Click on the following link for a copy of the form and guidance notes:

If your partner is not prepared to make an application herself, I suggest you instruct a solicitor in Edinburgh to make the application for you.

 

I hope this helps. If so, kindly click accept.
