A Spouse or Partner visa allows British citizens and individuals who have indefinite leave to remain, a permanent visa or settled status to call over their spouse or civil partner to live with them in the UK. A Spouse or Civil Partner will need a partner visa to live in the UK long term.
Once the visa is granted spouses or partners are granted a 30 day visa to enter the UK. After entry, the spouse or partner will need to attend a pre-selected Post Office location to collect their BRP (Biometric Residence Permit).
The Spouse/Partner Visa allows the Spouse/Partner to live and work in the UK without seeking permission from the Home Office.
