Unmarried Partner Visa

Unmarried Partner or Durable Partner Visa route applies the same requirements and benefits as spouse or partner route. The requirement is that you need to provide proof with supporting evidence that you have been in a committed and serious relationship for two years or longer. The unmarried partner visa falls under the family visa category, which applies to unmarried couples but also to children, parents, and spouse or civil partner. Under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, foreign nationals have the right to legally seek to travel to the UK with the intention of staying and living with their partner permanently in the UK.

The Unmarried Partner visa category is for long term partners of British citizens, persons with indefinite leave to remain in the UK or limited leave to remain under Appendix EU or Appendix ECAA, who wish to join, or stay with their partner in the UK.  You can also apply if your partner is outside the UK, but intending to return to the UK with you.
