Thanks for your question.
If she is to come here to live permanently as your wife then she will need to apply for a spouses visa directly to the British Embassy nearest to her.
You will have to show the following:-
- 1. That you are legally married to each other (marriage certificate)
- 2. That you are present and settled in the UK (passport, evidence of your life here - tax records, employment, residence)
- 3. You intend to live permanently together here in the UK as husband and wife (statements, evidence of her (statements, correspondence)
- 4. You can support each other without the need for public funds (bank statements, evidence of income)
- 5. You have suitable accommodation which is owned or lived in only by you or your household and where you and your dependents can live without any help from public funds (tenancy agreement, land registry docs if you your own home)
- 6. That neither of you are younger than 21 years of age. (birth certificates, passports)
Importantly you must be able to show that the income and assets available to you are enough to cover the costs of your living accommodation and day-to-day living expenses in the area in the UK that you are going to live in. You should present a budget to them to show that your financial arrangement are such that you will not need to access public funds.
She will need to apply by completing form VAF4, available for download from the UKBA's visa website.
To give yourselves the best possibly chance of a affirmative decision upon application (ie. without the need to appeal) it would be best for either a solicitor in the UK to prepare it in consultation with both you and your wife before submitting it. If you do not wish to pay a solicitor to prepare it for you then I would suggest at least paying to get them to check the application you yourselves have prepared before submission.
Your wife can find Uk immigration solicitors through the following Law Society Website search engine:-
