Switching from Tier 4 Student Visa to spousal visa
sarastephanie last edited by
I am an Australian citizen currently on a Tier 4 Student Visa, expiring in November 2017. I am hoping to marry my partner (UK national) of 1 year, but am not sure how to go about applying for a visa.
My partner is currently a student, and will start employment (earning over £25,000 p/a) in May 2017. As I understand, we are not able to apply for a spousal visa until he has been working in this role for 6 months.
Is there any way we can marry and apply for my visa without my having to leave the UK? Am I able to stay on in the UK after my Student visa expires, as a tourist, and apply for a marriage visa?
Any help would be so appreciated - it's a complicated situation so it's hard to find help on the subject!
Thank you for calling the office about this matter.
