Default Some visa advice needed.

Hi there, I'm living in South Africa and my girlfriend lives in the UK. We heard that there is a chance we can get a partner visa. As we don't want to get married yet. So I can move over to her, as the job opportunities in South Africa are quite slim. I've been looking at the British Embassy Website and have found no guidelines to what we should do or stipulations to how long we should have been together before we can apply or what evidence we need to provide. I used to live in the UK but can no longer get a work visa.

My big question is if anyone has ideas on what we should do? Or who I can contact?

Regards
Kalvin Garner

To get an unmarried partner visa, you should have lived together for at least 2 years, with documentary evidence to back it up, such as joint tenancy agreement, joint bank account, utility bills in joint names etc.
Furthermore, you must be able to be accommodated and live in UK without needing help from public funds. Your housing must be suitable, and you need to have combined financial resources that will put you on par with average UK worker, who earns around 25,000 a year.
