Not really, the bureaucrats could equally see it as proof that you really have been together for a period of time. Also, visitor visas are now in favour because they don't show up on the immigration stat's.

It will cost you them a great deal of money need to earn 18600 just for spouse depending on number of kids it's about an extra 2-3k each one also required £1200 IHS (immigration health surcharge) fee per person TB test and the hubby will need to take a recognised English test (£150 in UK) oh and miss an I or don't cross a t they will deny application they seem to be in the habit of accepting 1 application and denying the other. It's a hard and very stressful experience

That’s for a spouse visa, not a work visa which is what SofS and Gazza were talking about.

HTH.

​​​​​​Sounds like spouse visa territory to me

A UK citizen wouldn’t need to apply for “a work visa for the UK”.

As Christmasoompa said, my quote that you replied to was talking about visas for foreign nationals to work in the UK.

I know the rules for obtaining a 'family of a settled person' (spouse) visa, as I've applied for and received one myself.
