UK Visa for Thai Spouse
A UK Spouse visa Thailand for Thai spouses of UK citizens or permanent residents (mainly those with indefinite leave to remain) may come to the UK under marriage visa category, and are able to work as soon as a visa is granted. The Thai spouse should be legally married to the British national, this means the marriage should have been done in accordance with the requirements of the jurisdiction where the marriage is registered. Note that Buddhist marriage ceremony in Thailand has no legal basis and only marriage registered at the local amphur (distric office) is considered legal. Those who are married under the Buddhist ceremony alone are not qualified for the UK spouse visa Thailand.
Obtaining your UK Marriage Visa or applying for a UK Spouse Visa for your Thai spouse can be completed in Bangkok, Thailand. The Visa section of the British embassy in Bangkok processes UK spouse visa application and other settlement visa applications. The processing time depends on the volume of UK visa Thailand applications received by the British embassy. A UK Spouse Visa Thailand is valid for two years and is stamped on the applicant's passport if the application is successful.
- If you are married to a British citizen, you may be granted a UK Spouse Visa for a probationary period of 2 years and 9 months.
- If you are still married and living together at the end of that period in the UK, you will be eligible to apply for a Leave to Remain which entitles further stay of 2 years and 3 months.
- If you have been together for five years or more inside the UK and still meet the requirement, you will be granted Indefinite Leave to Remain (permanent residence in the UK).
