How Much is the Spouse Visa UK Fee?

The Home Office Fee

The current fee (as of 2021), for a Spouse Visa is £1,523 for applications made outside the UK. This comes under the Family Visa Category which effectively allows you to live with a family member (in this case, your spouse/partner) in the UK for more than 6 months.

If you are applying inside the UK to extend your stay as a spouse of a British person from your existing visa, the application is 'FLR M' and costs £1,033.

How Long Does the Visa Last?

The Visa gives you permission to stay in the UK for 2.5 years which can then be extended via FLR M (See above).

Can I include my Children on my Application?
You can include dependants (children under 18) on your Spouse Visa Application. Each dependant will cost an additional £1,523.

The Immigration Health Surcharge

As part of your application you must also pay for the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) which gives you access to UK healthcare. The cost for which is currently £1,872 applicable to applications made outside the UK (The fee is £1,560 for applications made inside the UK).

Priority Visa Service for Faster Processing Time
To get a quicker decision on your application, you can opt to pay extra for the priority service. The cost for this is £573 (for applications made outside of the UK). - Note that this service is not suitable for people who have had any of the following:
