Over the years, the UKBA has stipulated a number of rules and regulations with regards to the spouse or a dependent child of a UK work permit holder gaining an entry clearance visa, particularly in those cases wherein an applicant is traveling to the UK for a period in excess of 6 months.

Those wishing to come to the UK on a spouse visa should be conscientious when applying and endeavor to have the following documents attached with their application.

Visual proof of the marriage, i.e. photographs and videos

A marriage certificate

Once all the documents are in place, the candidate would need to submit the completed form along with their evidence, fees and their passport at a British Embassy or consulate in their home country.

Eligibility Criteria

According to the conditions stipulated by the UKBA, it is important for the applicant to state the reasons for applying for a visa. If the reasons stated are not considered strong enough, the immigration authorities may deem it necessary to reject the application. On the other hand, if the application is successful then the candidate would be able to enter and exit the UK freely at their own discretion.
