UK family visas are basically a group of UK permanent and short-term immigration authorizations which are granted to people who wish to establish a meaningful permanent family life in the UK with their respective UK resident family members. There are couple of ways through which you could get a UK family visa as a spouse or parent of a UK national. The first is to apply for a visa directly with the Home Office of the British Council or the VISA scheme. The second way is to get your spouse or parent an immigrant visa or settlement by the British High Commission in the country of the applicant.

The spouses or parents of the UK citizens who are eligible for a UK family visa can apply for it either by themselves or with the help of their partners. A person can also get a UK private life visa or Settlement by applying for it with the help of a private solicitor. An applicant may also get the green light from the authorities if they are married or residing as a civil partner or unmarried partner with the consent of the applicant.

In order to be granted a UK private life or a UK spouse visa, there are certain documents which need to be submitted along with the application form. Among these are the marriage certificate, birth records, evidence of income and the address at present. You must ensure that all these documents are original and not forged. This will help you to have an improved chance of being granted a UK family visa or a UK private life visa. Once these documents are verified, you could then proceed to fill out an application form and submit it along with the required documents.

After this, you will receive an application pack or a checklist in the post. Along with it you will receive an SMS or an email asking you to click on some links so that you could complete your application properly. Within two weeks, you will receive a registration card which is necessary for tracking down your visa category. The next stage is a consultation meeting where the professional who is responsible for processing your application will go through the documents that you have provided. He will make sure that all the necessary eligibility requirements are fulfilled and only then the application will be sent to the UK department of immigration.

You could then decide to apply for a UK indefinite leave to remain or indefinite leave to work. For indefinite leave to work, you will be required to have been working for a minimum of two.5 years. Similarly, if you want an indefinite leave to remain, you will be required to have been a British citizen for at least five years. If you are an EU citizen, you will be eligible to apply for a non EU family visa.

Applications for UK family visa do not take much time as compared to the procedure of applying for an EU family visa. In fact, the whole process may sometimes seem to be very easy. The applicant should remember though that the whole process will take at least two years. There will be a lot of paperwork and the whole procedure will be dependent on whether you are being granted permission to reside or whether you are being granted permission to work. There are so many rules involved in both the processes and this means that it is important to understand the rules well in advance.
