In order to get a British spouse visa, your British wife will need to sponsor you. There are a number of ways to do so, but the common ones are cash savings worth £62,500 for six months or a job in the UK which pays at lease £18,600 per year for 6 months. If your marriage certificate is not in English, you will also need to have it professionally translated into English for the application.

With limited English skills, you are likely to get jobs in the lower end of the job market in the UK.

Have you think of moving elsewhere within the EU? Germany for example? You, as the husband of an Irish citizen, can apply for an EEA family permit. EEA family permit is a lot easier to get than UK spouse visa.

You should get EEA family permit as spouse of an Irish citizen. That will let you come to the UK. As long as you want to work and are polite and respectful, you will find a job in London.

Thanks alot i appreciate your help , actually despite i find uk is hard in terms of visa process but i guess it will bring me to my ambitions , i think theres other options to travel to like canada, but getting there me and maybe wife jobless without acommodation nor anything will make this matter harder !

Regarding the visa i guess as we been in real life for a couple of weeks, the relationship will not be enough proved for consulate !! but we will be having pictures , wedding details .. so much messages .. etc

Is it doable to apply as fiance and switch it within the country as fiance visa issuance is more garanteed than spousal visa !!

Marriage certificate will be translated to english and legalized

Thank u so much

Maybe it will take longer time to be naturalized !!

Or it does not matter as once i get uk i can apply directly to uk residence regarding how did i get to uk !

Are the proccess or requirements of (EEA family visa ) same with spousal visa of british citizen !
I guess in the end theres relationship you have to prove !!

Thank you so much for your kindness
I appreciate u

Default Dual nationalities

Hello everybody,

I wanna ask about EEA family permit ,
My wife has two nationalities , irish and british !!

As u know that visa issuance is difficult with considering my wife british , hard process

So i would like to apply as EEA family , regardless her british nationality ,

Is that applicable ? Will they have concerns like its not allowed ur wife is british as well, so u should apply as she is british !!

In case it succeeded , can i switch the visa once i get there to spouse visa based on her british nationality ?

One of the proofs is i that im dependant on her ! How can i prove that

Thank u very much

Why you want to switch from an EEA family permit to an UK spouse visa?

If your wife is jobless, then how is she exercising her EEA treaty rights in the UK? You will need to answer this question before moving on to the EEA family permit.

Default Re: Dual nationalities

I don't think a British person can sponsor for EEA family permit in the UK, regardless of any other nationalities they hold. I think if you want to live in the UK you would have to be sponsored for a spouse visa. But that's not 100%, only what I've read on here when browsing.

Well, she can give up her British Citizenship in order to do so.

However, from another thread, the OP said that his wife is jobless just now. That may affect the OP's EEA family permit application.
