You’re not alone if you’re a UK citizen or have permanent residency in the country, but your partner is a Brazilian. Many couples have to negotiate the exciting but challenging process of combining their lives while living in separate nations. Fortunately, Brazilians can now join their spouses in the UK and eventually get married due to the UK fiance visa from Brazil. This thorough guide will explain the criteria, eligibility, and essential paperwork for getting your UK fiance visa from Brazil.
Eligibility to UK Fiance Visa from Brazil:
A Fiancé(e) Visa applicant and sponsor must fulfil specific requirements to be eligible for a UK fiance visa from Brazil:
#1 – Status of Relationship:
The couple must be sincere in their engagement and intend to get married within six months of the visa being granted. It is required that both individuals be married to another person or be in a civil partnership at the moment.
#2 – Age Requirement:
At the moment of application, both partners must be at least eighteen years old.
#3 – Financial Requirement:
The UK will increase the financial requirement for family visas; it will go from £18,600 to £29,000 in the spring of 2024 and then to £38,700 in the early months of 2025. The UK government has the authority to modify this level regularly. We advise you to read our page on family visa financial criteria or contact us for the most up-to-date information on how to fulfil these requirements.
#4 – Wedding Plan:
The application needs to include information on the planned marriage, as well as proof of any costs already paid, such as a booked location or other ceremony preparations.
#5 – Language Requirements:
Candidates have to show a basic command of the English language, which commonly entails completing an approved A1-level exam.
#6 – Requirements for Accommodations:
The sponsor is responsible for finding their partner appropriate housing in the UK that satisfies all requirements and isn’t overly crowded.
#7 – Duration of Stay and Return Schedule:
The Fiancé(e) Visa applicants should not strive to establish permanent residency in the UK, nor should they plan to stay in the country for longer than six months. The candidate must be able to cover the cost of their return airfare from the United Kingdom.
What is the Processing Time And Decision?
Fiance(e) Visa applications are usually processed in two to three months, though actual processing timeframes may vary. The applicant will be informed of the outcome, and should their visa be approved, they can arrange to travel to the UK to join their partner.
The couple has six months from the time they arrive in the UK to get married. After this time, in order to remain in the UK, the applicant must apply for a Civil Partnership Visa or, if they got married, a Spouse Visa. Keep in mind that the Fiancé(e) Visa does not allow one to work or get government assistance.
Your Brazilian partner may apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) through the Spouse Visa and Civil Partnership Visa routes once they have been in the UK for five years.
