Default Spouse visa

Hello,

Couple people told me that for my soon to be wife will need to be 21 to come and join me in the uk?
i am a British citizen and she is currently in turkey we are soon going to be married but she is not 21.
she is 18 i am aware of all the requirements about her learning english and the money i need to be earning also.
but is it true that that age limit has or will be changed?
thanks for all advice

Apply as a partner or spouse

To apply as a partner, you and your partner both need to be 18 or over

Your marriage needs to one that's recognised in the UK. Marrying at 18 is legal in the UK so your wife to be's age isn't a problem.

Presuming you are having a recognised civil marriage in Turkey by a Turkish official and you will have all the necessary documents to show such marriage, it will be recognised in the UK

As SanDiegogirl has explained above.

If your marriage is legally recognised (ie a legal marriage) in Turkey, it will also be legally recognised in the UK.

There is no such thing as being 21 correct?
anybody have any idea where this 21 came out of then?

Best to ask the 'couple of people' who've told you it's 21, I'm not sure any of us can guess where they've got that from.
