UK Settlement Visa - Exam Requirement, English Language Test & Minimum A1 Level English language Requirement - IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, ESOL tests

Those looking to enter the UK as a spouse will have to demonstrate basic English at A1 level, the same level required for skilled workers admitted under the Skilled Tier of the Points Based System.

A spouse coming from outside Europe will need to provide evidence to the UK Border Agency that they have passed an English language test with one of the UK Border Agency’s approved test providers with their visa application.

According to current rules spousal visa applicants already have to meet a range of criteria before being allowed to enter the UK. All applicants must show their marriage or partnership is genuine and that they can support themselves financially.

Whether you are married in the UK or overseas, the non-UK partner must apply for a two year settlement visa to come and live in the UK as a spouse. At the end of the two years they can apply to the UK Border Agency for indefinite leave to remain.

Spouses applying for indefinite leave to remain after completing their two-year period of temporary residence will still need to fulfil the Knowledge of Life and Language in the UK test. This is in addition to this new basic English language requirement which forms part of their initial application.

Those who are seeking to settle in the UK through a marriage visa, fiancé visa or settlement visa are required to prove that they have minimum A1 level of English by taking one of the IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, ESOL exams. Any settlement application filed without a certificate proving minimum A1 level of English will be refused. You may not have to take such an exam if you are graduated from an accredited university where classes are taught in English.

For detailed information please e-mail us: info@visaadvisor.net

Minimum A1 level English language proficiency exam for a UK settlement visa must be taken at an organisation approved by the UK Border agency. The applicant will prove their English proficiency by taking one of the IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, ESOL exams administered by the authorised organizations.

Authorised organisations approved by the UK Border Agency that can administer one of the IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, ESOL exams.

APPROVED ENGLISH TESTS

If our assessment of your current situation concludes that you do not meet UKBA requirements for the type of visa you are seeking, we will inform you of what you must do in order to be successful in your UK visa application, and make sure that you do not waste time and money by applying for a UK visa that will be unsuccessful. Once we work together to remedy your current discrepancies, you may confidently apply for your requested UK visa with a professional portfolio prepared by our staff members, which is guaranteed to increase the probability of a successful result.

Who has the ultimate authority to decide on the conclusion of your visa application?

Your visa application is reviewed and approved / disapproved by the UKBA (United Kingdom Border Agency) officers at the UK Consulate in Istanbul. In other words, employees of WorldBridge visa application centres are not in a position to decide whether or not you should be granted a UK visa.

In the event that you come across any individual or corporate entity that requests you pay them an undeserved fee so that they can positively influence your visa application through their special connections with the consulate, please contact the UK Consulate immediately, even if this entity is WorldBridge, or the individual is an employee of WorldBridge.

To report a complaint with regards to any undeserved fee requests, please send an e-mail to the UK Consulate General: visafraud.tk@fco.gov.uk or send them a fax at (212) 334-6553.

Beware of any individuals and firms that give you 100% guarantee that they will get your visa! Based on our 20+ years of experience as visa advisors we can confidently say that only impostors can make such a commitment and give you false hopes.

Please remember that only individuals that are qualified and able to evidence their qualification as required by UKBA can be issued UK visas. Any other approach is considered fraud and a crime, and can result in prosecution.

Let us prepare your visa application in a form that is to the full satisfaction of the requirements of UKBA officers; saving you time and money (including visa fee, travel expenses, translation fees, freight etc.)

You are deeply mistaken if you think that anybody that speaks English, any travel agency or any translation agency can handle such a job which actually requires professional know how. Numerous disappointed applicants visit our office every week because their UK visa application has been refused due to incomplete or incorrect preparation conducted by individuals with inadequate experience, or know nothing about the requirements of the UK Border Agency, the UK Consulate General in Istanbul and UK Immigration Laws, even though they are proficient in English, or native speakers.

We can still assist you to appeal refusals with the UK Immigration Tribunal. Not only are we knowledgeable and experienced in appealing UK visa refusals, but we also cooperate with law firms located in the UK. However, we prefer to be by your side before and during your UK visa application process without resorting to appealing a refusal. The only successful way to obtain a UK visa is to prepare an application portfolio that fully meets requirements of the UKBA. We have the know-how to do it professionally, and we are willing to help you throughout the process.

Please refer to our web site and links to the web sites of the UK Border Agency, the UK Consulate General and WorldBridge for more detailed information about how to file a UK visa application.

For detailed information on the UK Immigration Laws and the current policies please refer to UK Border Agency web site.
