Re: Apply Provisional License on Spouse Visa

My Spouse received driving licence within 3 weeks of application, and it was sent via Royal Mail 2nd class standard. Supporting documents were returned 2 days after licence arrived.

If you send first class recorded, depending on ur circumstances, you may receive sooner.

marraige allownace - spouse visa

Dear All

I intend to back date this a couple of years, however my spouse has only entered the UK in the last 28 days.

Re: Spouse Settlement to Citizenship efficiently

There is no 2 year route to ilr anymore, not since 8th July 2012. So previously it was a 2 year spouse visa and one year on ilr then citizenship.

Re: Spouse Settlement to Citizenship efficiently

There is NO fast track route to citizenship, however once they have ILR and are married to a British citizen and meet all the requirements based on 3 years residence (different to the ILR 5 years residence requirement), they can apply immediately for British citizenship.
