Immigration So you want to come to Europe?
THERE ARE MANY RECENT CHANGES TO IMMIGRATION Its
not easy any more
Immigration from Kenya into Europe is not
that easy. Just getting a visa to leave the country is hard enough,
let alone be granted European entry. Despite its long British history,
if you are from Kenya and want to come to UK, its a minefield of obstructions
and delays.Your first approach and the best way to get a feel for European
countries like UK, is to seek a two year working holiday
maker visa from Kenya. These are the easiest to
obtain but only if you are between 17 and 30 years of age.
UK - Prospective Marriage Visa
The UK fiancé visa service allows
a person to bring their fiancé to join them in the United
Kingdom as long as they themselves have settled status as a permanent
resident or British citizen. Settled status means that they are living
here lawfully with no time limit on their stay. If you are returning
to the United Kingdom to settle, your partner can also apply for
a UK fiance visa to join you at the same time.
If you wish to bring your spouse or common-law
partner to join you in the United Kingdom, Global visas can help
at every stage of the process. As a specialist UK immigration consultancy,

as well as the range of British work permits and visas for immigration
Fiance immigration to the UK through this
type of visa for Great Britain grants your partner leave to enter
the UK in order to marry. Unlike other spouse immigration routes
such as marriage visas, De facto visas and the Highly skilled Migrant
Programme, or HSMP, fiance visas do not require applicants to provide
evidence that a relationship has already been in existence for a
given number of years.
Fiancée visas are issued for a period
of six months and are awarded solely for the purpose of travelling
to Britain in order to get married. Only after marriage may the applicant
apply to stay in the country beyond the six-month period, at which
time a two-year UK visa extension may be issued in the shape of a
marriage visa. After this time, a person can apply for Indefinite
Leave to Remain (ILR)
, often known as permanent residency in
the UK, as long as the marriage continues to stand.
People who wish to apply for this class of
immigration service must be 16 years of age or over, and the partner
with the settled status or who is returning to Britain to live permanently,
must be 18 years of age or over.
To qualify for a UK fiancée visa partners
- Plan to marry within a reasonable time (usually six months).
- Plan to live together permanently after they are married.
- Have met each other.
- Have a place to reside for the applicant and any dependants
to live until they are married without help from public funds.
- Be able to support any dependants without working or receiving
help from public funds.
Only after an applicant's fiance-prospective
marriage visa is changed over to a two-year marriage visa are they
able to start working and hold the same rights as their spouse who
is present and settled in the United Kingdom. However, once a two-year
grant of leave has been obtained, applicants will be able to work
without the need for a UK work permit and without restrictions upon
the type of work undertaken. Applicants for a visa for Fiancee immigration
should marry within the six months from the date of issue.
