Many British expats living in Thailand either choose to do so or are forced to return to the UK. Most of them will have Thai women or Thai friends and want them to come to the UK to live permanently or to stay longer. Of course, if your Thai wife wanted to live in the UK permanently, she would need a British spouse visa, and for a Thai friend who would like to stay up to six months a year, she would need a British tourist visa. In this article, we focus on the UK spouse visa.
Very few people make a quick decision to return to the UK. It is therefore important that you plan ahead. One of the biggest restrictions on a UK spouse visa is the financial requirements. If you haven’t lived in the UK for some time and are of working age, this can be even more difficult. If you plan to be self-employed, start up and trade your business early and make sure you have a one-year trading account with a profit of over £ 18,600. If you are employed, you need a three month pay slip so you have to return first.
Requirements for a British spouse visa
- You must both be at least 18 years old
- Be legally married
- Be in a real relationship and live as a man and woman
- The sponsor must earn at least £ 18,600 a year.
