Family visas or partner visas are the type of visas which can be applied for by someone who has a family member who is settled in the UK (i.e., such as British citizenship or indefinite leave to remain) or who holds leave on refugee status in the UK.

  3. The applicant needs to meet financial and accommodation requirements to maintain and house themselves in the UK adequately.
