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. Contact our team of professional Uk family visa specialists to for the legal represntation of your family visa applications.

Apply for Fiance Visa Extension. Unable to get married within 6 months validity period of UK Fiance Visa- What can you do and how can we help?

A UK Fiancé Visa is a type of UK family visa, allows individuals who are engaged to a UK-based British partner (or person with ILR or Settled Status) to enter the UK to marry their partner within visa validity period. The UK fiance visa is valid for 6 months in contrast to long term partner visa for civil partners, unmarried partnership visa or spouse visa for married couples which are valid for 2 years and 9 months for first visa application to join a partner in the UK. 

To apply for a fiancé visa extension, you must provide evidence of good reason why you were unable to get married in the UK within 6 months of the fiance visa. In addition, all UK fiance visa requirements must be met.  Such as you and your partner must both be 18 years or older. Your partner must either be a British or Irish citizen, have settled status in the UK, or have proof of permanent residence such as ILR or Settled Status or Pre-Settled Status for EU Citizens living in the UK. You must also be able to prove that you have a good knowledge of English, can financially support yourself and your dependents, and intend to live together permanently in the UK after you apply.

The UK government has set out a number of immigration rules and regulations that must be followed by those who wish to enter or remain in the country. These rules apply to all types of visas, including fiancé(e) visas. One of the visa conditions of the UK fiance visa is that you and your British sponsor will get married in the UK before expiry of your fiance visa. If you are in the UK with leave as a fiancé(e) or proposed civil partner and the marriage or civil partnership did not take place during that period of leave, there must be good reason why and evidence that it will take place within the next 6 months. The application for fiance visa extension must be made before visa expiry. You are not required to leave the UK  while your Uk visa application is pending, though you will not be able to work in the UK on fiance visa or while your fiance visa extension application is pending.  

Contact our family visa team to get professional immigration advice and support.  We can prepare your fiance visa application to extend your visa and submit to the UK Visas and Immigration as your legal representative. Our full application service for UK fiance visa application covers all work on the application with unlimited advice, until a decision is made on the application by UKVI.
