Hello everybody,

Hope you can help me out regarding the visa type I need to choose.

To start, Is Civil Marriage and Civil Partnership the same?

Got married in the UK through a civil marriage ceremony by the Registrar in 2015.

I'm applying for a visa using: (Same-sex marriage, both LAD)

Reason for visit: Settlement
Visa Type: Settlement.
Visa sub type: Confused! Do I pick Husband? or Civil Partnership?

Visa sub type (Husband) - gives the instruction to fill VAF4A - Appendix2
Visa sub type (Civil Partnership) - gives the instruction to fill unspecified Appendix and also asks to fill SU07 form.

I have actually started my On-Line application (chosen - Civil partnership) but haven't submitted yet.

Hope someone here can help me out.

Thanks in advance!!!


Regards,

Gee&Jay

In the UK, a Civil Partnership is only between same-sex partners. Even though same-sex couples can (now) legally marry, they can also form a civil partnership (precursor to legal marriage), which opposite-sex couples can't. This is more info than you asked for...

If you are already married and you (the applicant) are the husband, select Husband.
