Update: NEW Minimum Income Requirement for UK Spouse Visa, Fiance Visa and Dependent Children, rising from £18600 to £29000 a year from 11 April 2024

Updated 1 Feb 2024

This has now been confirmed by UK Government on 30 Jan 2024 that-

“The spouse/partner visa minimum income will first increase to £29,000 on 11 April 2024; to around £34,500 at an unspecified time later in 2024; and finally to around £38,700 by early 2025.”

The UK Secretary of State for the Home Department announced on Dec 4, 2023

“Fourthly, we will ensure that people bring only dependants whom they can support financially, by raising the minimum income for family visas to the same threshold as the minimum salary threshold for skilled workers, which is £38,700. The minimum income requirement is currently £18,600 and has not been increased since 2012. This package of measures will take effect from next spring.”

When will the new higher income requirement for UK spouse Visa and Fiance Visa be enforced?

The spouse/partner visa minimum income will first increase to £29,000 on 11 April 2024; to around £34,500 at an unspecified time later in 2024; and finally to around £38,700 by early 2025.

What are changes in the income threshold for UK family visas, how much income requirement has been increased?

The proposed change in the financial requirements for the family visas from £18600 per year to £29000 a year, an increase of £10,400, a change of 56 percent. The change will affect low income UK sponsors who want to bring their partner and children to the UK. The UK family visas include UK fiance visa, UK partner visa such as spouse visa and dependent children visa applications for UK under appendix FM. The current annual income threshold for sponsoring an additional family member is £3800 for a first child and £2400 for each additional child. These amounts could go high as much as £8000 and £5000 respectively. This is a forecoasted change by our inhouse immigration experts.  

I am already in the UK on a family visa. Would new income requirements £29000 per year apply to me at the time of visa extension?

The UK Home Office confirmed that- “Those who already have a family visa within the five-year partner route, or who apply before the minimum income threshold is raised, will continue to have their applications assessed against the current income requirement and will not be required to meet the increased threshold”.

This means that the change will not affect the family members under appendix FM 5 years route, who are already in the UK, at the time of their application for spouse visa extension.

Applying for UK family visa before change in the income requirements

In view of the above, it may be worthwhile considering making a UK partner visa application earlier than you originally planned before change takes effect in the 11 April 2024.
