UK Immigration as an Unmarried Partner under Appendix FM Immigration rules

UK Unmarried Partner Visa Application

Many partners choose to live together without getting married, so if you have lived together continuously for a minimum of two years in the UK, or elsewhere, you could be eligible for an unmarried partner visa.

This visa application can be considered a little tricky as you would also need to show that you are in a genuine and subsisting relationship and when you are not in a marriage it becomes vital to get this right. Also, it may be that you are now living separately although you are still in a relationship; we will help you work out how to present this to the UKVI or the Home office to ensure you are meeting the relationship requirements. You can apply for an Unmarried Partner visa from your home country or in the UK depending on where you have lived together before your application. Unmarried partners can be same-sex partners also. 

If you are in the UK on a Tier 2 Work Visa or Skilled Worker Visa you can switch to an Unmarried Partner Visa within the UK  if you have cohabited with your partner together for 2 years.
