If you are applying as a fiancé, fiancée or proposed civil partner you must prove that:
- any previous marriages or civil partnerships have ended
- you plan to marry or become civil partners within 6 months of arriving in the UK

You will not be able to work during your engagement.

You can stay in the UK for 2 years and 9 months on this visa. If you are applying as a fiancé, fiancée or proposed civil partner, you can stay for 6 months.

After this you will need to apply to extend your stay.

If you extend your family visa or switch to this visa you can stay in the UK for 2 years and 6 months.

If you cannot pay the fee you can apply for a fee waiver. Whether your application is accepted depends upon your circumstances.

You can add children to your application as dependants if both of the following apply:
- they are under 18 when you apply, or were under 18 when they were first granted leave
- they do not live an independent life

The earliest you can apply to settle in the UK (called ‘indefinite leave to remain’) is after you have lived in the UK for 5 years continuously on a family visa as a partner.

You cannot include time you have spent in the UK:
- on any other visa
- as a fiancé, fiancée or proposed civil partner
