hello

I am a British Citizen and my fiance is Indian. we are planning on getting married in the UK and have already given notice and booked a date for next year.
my understanding is that the UKBA will look at the list of requirements (financial, accomodation and relationship) when we apply for the spousal visa. what will they look at when applying for the fiance visa and how long should the fiance visa take to process??

TIA

More or less the same as spouse visa, except that of course you provide your wedding plans and arrangements already made instead of marriage certificate. You still have to meet the same financial and accommodation requirement, and veracity of your relationship.
The timeframe for settlement visa applications made in India is rather long, about 3-4 months, and there is no priority service.

You can normally do it by same-day premium service in one day, at extra cost.
