Find out what you need to do if you are coming to the UK to get married.
Step 1: Check if you need a visa
Step 2: Apply for a visa
The visa you need depends on who you are marrying and whether you want to live in the UK after. You can apply for either:
- a marriage visitor visa if you are not going to live in the UK,
- a fiance visa if you want to live in the UK and you are marrying a UK citizen or settled person.
Or apply for a family permit
You can apply for a family permit if you are marrying someone who is a citizen of:
- an EU country that is not the UK,
- Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland.
