Important UK Fiancé Visa Information for 2021

Following the end of free movement between the EU and UK from 1 January 2021, all non-UK nationals – including EU nationals (excluding citizens of Ireland) – require a visa for UK entry. This applies to fiancé visa applicants.

If your fiancé is a citizen of the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, and started living in the UK prior to 1 January 2021, you could be eligible for making an application for residence under the EU Settlement Scheme. 

The EU Settlement Scheme exempts you from needing a UK visa to remain in the country. You have up until 30 June 2021 to apply for the scheme.

If you do not qualify for residence under the EU Settlement Scheme, a visa is required for you to join your fiancé in the UK.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, entry to the UK is subject to the current government guidelines.
