What is an Entry Clearance Application?
An application for entry clearance is where you fill out an application for a visa, used to check whether you qualify to enter the UK under the immigration rule.
At Ashwood Solicitors, our expert team of solicitors can advise clients on all types of UK visa entry clearance applications. With a wealth of experience and extensive knowledge, we aim to provide clients with support when applying for an Entry Clearance Application.
Spouses and partners
To bring a spouse or partner to the UK, you must satisfy the Home Office that you and your partner are:
● Lawfully married or in a genuine and subsisting relationship
● That any previous marriages and relationships have ended
● That you have sufficient income (at least £18,600 p.a.) to support yourselves
● You have access to accommodation
● Your partner speaks an adequate level of English
● Your partner is free from Tuberculosis
Many clients find the financial aspect of these applications intimidating. If you are self-employed, relying on pension income or the director of a limited company, the evidence you will need to provide is very specific. We would advise that you get this paperwork and evidence in order before sending documents to a Visa Application Centre.
In limited circumstances, you may be able to rely on exceptional offers of funding from third parties or job offers to support an application. If you are successful, your partner will be granted 30 months of leave to remain in the UK on a 5-year route to settlement. If not, we can assist you in troubleshooting what went wrong with an earlier application or appeal against a refusal.
You can sponsor any family member over 18 to join you. Still, you must show that they have medical issues with basic daily functions and that the care they require is either not available or not affordable in their country of origin. You must also show that you can accommodate them without requiring any state support for at least five years.
This is a significant narrowing of without requiring previously much more generous provisions and these applications are notoriously challenging. Getting appropriate medical evidence is crucial if you wish to proceed.
