Hi I've seen on websites that in the future will they ever change the £18600 to £13000 a year for fiance visa & spouse visa


I only earn £13100a year with both jobs that I have plus I have savings in the bank

Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon

Yes, that was the speculation at that time but since then the government has appealed against the High Court judgment and stated in parliament last month they have absolutely no plan to lower the financial requirement.

It's not a decision but a statement of intention. So the government is prepared to fight tooth and nail to maintain £18,600 (possibly uprated with inflation) all the way to the Supreme Court, and then Europe.

Nothings ever fair in this world I suppose you can provide between 26,000+ worth of savings to use a shortfall of your income but realistic some people just don't have that amount of savings

Dual British/Irish national cannot use EEA route.

For financial requirement you need £29,750 in savings (kept at that level for 6 months) plus your salary of £13,100

All I'm saying is for bringing your partner to UK, taking out Irish nationality offers no advantage.
