    In other words, family reunion in the UK really stinks, these provisions have been in place since 2012 (thanks Theresa May! ) They are the worst part of the UK immigration system and something I very strongly disagree with, unfortunately there isn't much that can be done about it. While the skilled worker and refugee routes are currently under review, there are no plans that we are aware of, to even look at the family visas.

      It’s big different between 1)to apply before arrival but as married in Slovakia (which is our plan in next week because we are currently in Slovakia together as I have a holiday) 2)to get married in UK after apply as can be see above?

          As you will have seen, there's the option to do it either way. If you marry in Slovakia, your spouse can then apply for the spousal visa from Slovakia as a spouse rather than a fiance, providing the marriage certificate.

          When she makes the application, she will have to provide evidence of how the relationship was built up, as noted here: UK family visas - spouses and partners (spousal visa route) - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families

          She will then have to provide that evidence with the rest of supporting documents. Visa applications made outside the UK are handled by either VFS or TLS, I believe TLS handles most applications made in Europe, so the documents will need to be provided via their systems, instructions will be provided when you make the application.

            One person has come to me so far who has been refused and we have lodged an appeal. After 3 months the Tribunal has finally acknowledged receipt! Progress will be painfully slow.

            I have another 3 applications which are outstanding with the HO and I fear they will be refused simply because the Govt did not extend the Covid concession to these people. I shall argue as strongly as I can, but it will be difficult since the law does not have the flexibility. I shall be relying on people's best attempts to get married last year and the "flexible and pragmatic approach" which the caseworkers are supposed to apply.

            As ClaudLatina has stated abov, the solution may well be under the arduous Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules. I have also advised my clients to be prepared to leave the country and make an entry clearance application with their EEA partner in UK meeting the usual income requirements etc. It's not a popular decision/advice since people fear they may not return at all, although I think they are wrong. This has to be a backstop, unless someone is willing to go for a judicial review which is expensive and may still not yield te desired results.

            I am the Principal of the Practice ACS Visas and I am a Level 3 Regulated Adviser, authorised by the Office of Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) to provide advice in both Immigration and Asylum. I am also a volunteer with UKCEN, where I provide one-off advice on a pro-bono basis. This advice should not be considered a substitute for formal legal advice. Please see Tariq N for full details.

                Evening,

                Congratulations on your wedding!

                If you look at what our lawyer wrote above, what he said is that the Home Office DID NOT extend the Covid provisions to those who couldn't get married due to lockdowns, so I'm afraid you will find nothing in them, if that's the link you are after. I sent an email to them asking very specifically about this situation and they just gave me the runaround with the criteria for durable partners without addressing the issue of weddings cancelled due to lockdown at all.

                As he says above, he will be relying on some other arguments often used by the Home Office, but it's not certain whether the approach will work. Feel free to contact him if you want him to help with your case, you will find his details linked to from his signature: Tariq N - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families
