UK spouse visa is also known as UK marriage Visa and it permits the married partners of UK citizens or individuals already settled in the UK to apply for entry clearance to join their spouses in the UK on a settlement basis. It is a type of settlement Visa that allows the spouse to live in the UK for up to 30 months and it can be extended for another 30 months later.
Spouse Visa UK allows the applicant to settle in the UK as they become eligible to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) and finally British Citizenship.

You can Apply for Spouse Visa UK under the following circumstances:
You can apply for a spouse visa UK from within the UK or from overseas, so if you are already in the UK on a work visa, fiancé visa, or student visa that is valid for more than six months, then it can be changed to a spouse visa.
To apply for a visa under Appendix FM you will need to submit a valid application, so follow part 1 of immigration rules in paragraph 34. Make use of the correct application form, which has been published most recently.
You also need to submit the right application fee along with the original and valid ID. With your application, you also have to pay the NHS surcharge which is 400 pounds per year. Applications from overseas must be filed online and it is important to print and complete Appendix 2 that consists of financial requirements.
UK applicants also need to file an important form FLR (M) for leave to remain and SET (M) for indefinite leave to remain. Children who are under 18 years of age can also enter the UK as dependents and you need to make an application for them at the same time as a British spouse visa application.
The sponsoring spouse must show income of a particular amount for the same and this income level depends on the number of dependent children that are being sponsored.
Exception-In case you have refugee status or humanitarian protection then you don’t have to meet the financial requirement.
To qualify for the spouse visa UK or marriage visa you need to meet the following requirements:
If you are a spouse visa UK applicant then you need to show that you can understand and speak English and you must meet the English language requirements if:
If you are not a national of majority English speaking country and don’t have a degree of English language then you have to pass an English language test from the approved test provider.
The average processing time of spouse visa UK application is 2-12 weeks from the date of submission. If you are applying from overseas then a spouse visa is initially issued for 33 months.
If you are applying from within the UK then a spouse visa is issued for 30 months. Later on, you can apply for an extension of an additional 30 months which can be extended up to five years.
On completion of 5 years, you can also apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) if you are still married and living in the UK and the sponsor continues to meet the financial requirements.
Once ILR has been granted, you are eligible to apply for naturalization as a British citizen. You cannot, however, switch to a spouse visa if you are already in the UK on a visa for at least six months.
You can apply for the extension of a spouse visa UK for an additional 30 months.
If you wish to enter the UK based on your relationship with a UK national then you need to apply for entry clearance before coming to the UK.
If you are applying from inside the UK then you need to have leave to remain in the UK on a visa that is valid for 6 months at the time of applying.
A successful application under Appendix FM will provide you with a grant of leave to enter for 30 months. During this time the person can apply for ILR after 5 years. There is an exception where the application is granted based on exceptional circumstances for which you will need to wait for 10 years before applying for ILR.
