UK Fiance Visa to Marry in the UK

If you are engaged with a qualifying person (sponsor) and you wish to marry in the UK, you can apply for a UK fiance visa. You can also apply if you are same sex partners and intend to have a Civil Partnership ceremony in the UK. You can only apply for a Fiance Visa from outside the UK. Some people also name the UK Fiance visa the UK Marriage visa.
A sponsor must be either a British citizen or a person who is settled in the UK. That is with indefinite leave to remain or permanent residence. A person who has refugee leave or humanitarian protection leave can also be a sponsor.
The UK Fiance Visa requirements are similar to those for other partner visas but the UK Fiance Visa, also known as the UK Marriage Visa, is valid for six months. Within the six-month visa period you are expected to marry or have a civil partnership ceremony and apply for a Spouse Visa within the UK.
