Hi everyone,

Im desperate need help please! my tier 2 working visa will expire on 27 april and i have tried to book the premium appointment with ukba for unmarried visa so i can know the result same day. The earliest available date is 19 april. Does anyone know if this is likely to leave me enough time?

I believe ive got sufficient document to get the unmarried visa but still nervous...

Got joint tenancy and council tax to prove leave together for 18 months
Then me and my uk boyfriend bought a house together as well as the mortage
We both got a job to got support our bills\mortage
Ive got the BNO passport to prove my country is english native speaker so do not need to provide the english test

Im just dont know whether i shd extend the working visa or go for the unmarried visa...much appreciate if anyone can guide me as time is ticking on me:noidea::noidea::noidea:

You need proof of two years' of cohabitation to qualify for unmarried partner visa. They are very strict about it. 18 months isn't enough.

If you are eligible to extend your Tier 2 (with new certificate of sponsorship etc), then you should go for it, because as things stand you won't be eligible to stay as unmarried partner.
Or you can get married.

Yes, we are living all the way together. I mean we been rented for 18 months then bought a house and live together.

so sorry, not sure about your mean of 'because as things stand you won't be eligible to stay as unmarried partner'. do you mean things may happen between me & bf which may split? Also, if I can get the unmarried visa and does it mean I'm still able to work?

Also, once the visa granted then if I got the Life in the UK test then I can get the ILR and does it mean that I can apply the UK passport?

Joppa explained to you that you need to have 2 years of living together for the unmarried partner visa, you mentioned that you only have been living together for 18 months so you need another 6 months of living together before you could apply for the unmarried partner visa.

Thanks, Jonne_Manchester! Sorry, i think i may mix u guys, We do leave together more than 2 years. I mean we rent apartment together of 18months then bought a house and live together since then. I've got the council tax & billings to prove it that we have more than 2 years of living together.

Yes, 6 Six months bank statement required in which there will be debit n credit balance. If you have savings; it will be superb.

Yes, you required photos, communication (if any), prove that you travel together, Council tax along with utility bills.

You must justify your relationship that is existing & subsisting.

Hope it helps you out.
