My visa application is for fianceÃ© visa from outside the UK , and with the current flight booking and appointment timeline I wont have the chance to present the ielts exam again as I did 4 years ago to gain entry to the University.
Sorry but this is so confusing! thanks!
You would not require an ENGLISH test for a fiance visa but once you get married and apply for SPOUSE visa you will be required, you could do this from the UK!
If you are outside the UK
If you are subject to immigration control and you want to come to the UK in this category, you can apply to do so if your fiance(e) or proposed civil partner is:
â– currently living in the UK and settled here; or
â– returning to the UK with you to live here permanently.
Both you and your fiance(e) or proposed civil partner must be at least 21 years old (or 18 years old if either of you is a serving member of HM Forces). Additionally, you must both show that:
â– you plan to marry or register a civil partnership within a reasonable time (usually 6 months);
â– you plan to live together permanently after you are married or have registered a civil partnership;
â– you have met each other;
â– until you are married or have registered a civil partnership, there is somewhere for you and any dependants to live without help from public funds (see Rights and responsibilities for more information on what this means);
â– there will, when you are married or in a civil partnership, be adequate accommodation where you and any dependants can live exclusively and without help from public funds; and
â– you and any dependants can be supported without working or needing help from public funds.
You must obtain permission to enter the UK before travelling here, even if you are a national of a country whose citizens do not normally require a visa to enter the UK. This permission is called 'entry clearance', and takes the form of a visa or an entry clearance certificate. To obtain it, you should apply to us in the country where you live. For more information, see our visa services website.
If we allow you to come to the UK in the category of fiance(e) or proposed civil partner (not as a visitor for marriage or civil partnership), you will normally be given permission to stay here for 6 months. You must not work during this time. After you have married or registered your civil partnership, you can apply to stay here as the husband, wife or civil partner of a settled person. If we approve your application, we will give you permission to live and work here for 2 years. Near the end of the 2 years, you can apply to settle here permanently if you are still married or civil partners and intend to live together.
