  • Timeline: This process typically takes a few weeks to a couple of months, depending on availability and administrative procedures

Applying for a Spouse Visa:

  • As a partner/spouse, you can apply for a Skilled Worker dependant visa to join your spouse who has a Skilled Worker visa. You’ll need to prove your relationship, English language proficiency, and financial capability. The processing time for applications from outside the UK is usually around 3 weeks, while in-country applications can take up to 8 weeks
  • Timeline: Approximately 3 to 8 weeks, depending on the application location.

Moving Jobs:

  • If you plan to change jobs in the UK, you’ll need to follow the relevant employment procedures, such as finding a new job, obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship (if applicable), and applying for a new Skilled Worker visa.
  • Timeline: Varies based on job availability and employer processes.

Arriving in the UK with an Employment-Based Dependant Visa:
