The requirements for immigration on a United Kingdom fiancée visa are similar to the United Kingdom spouse visa. The difference is that the British resident or citizen should marry the Thai fiancée within 6 months of entering the United Kingdom.
The Thai fiancée has no financial requirements, but the British partner must have a minimum gross income of £18,600 plus £3,800 for the first sponsored child and £2,400 for each additional sponsored child. When the Thai fiancée begins working in UK, the applicant’s income can be included in the gross income amount.
After marriage, the Thai fiancée should apply for a spouse visa This will enable them to work and live without restriction in the UK for 2 years and 9 months.
If the relationship continues after that period, Thai fiancée can apply for a leave to remain and stay for another 2 years and 6 months, and finally be eligible to apply for an indefinite leave to remain for permanent residence in the UK.
