A UK marriage visa enables your husband, wife or civil partner to apply for leave to enter or leave to remain in the United Kingdom. Marriage visa is suitable if you are married to a person who is settled in the UK with no time limit on their stay. Before traveling to UK with a marriage visa, your spouse must apply for entry clearance. Once settled status in the UK you are able to seek and take up employment in the United Kingdom as soon as the document is granted without the need to arrange a UK work permit with a marriage visa there is no restrictions upon the type of work that can be undertaken.

UK marriage visa is granted for an initial period of 2 years and after 2 years you may apply for an indefinite leave to remain ILR in the UK and then British nationality. Candidates must be 16 years of age or over before can be granted the visa and the spouse with settled status must be 18 years and over. Entry to the dependants will be granted for children of the marriage who are below 18 years of age. Their application will be made at the same time as the main applicant. Partners must proof that they are legally married to each other, plan to live together on a permanent basis, have met each other before and are able to support themselves entirely without recourses to public funds and have suitable accommodation.

The UK work permit is an immigration category used to encourage skilled workers to enter the United Kingdom up till to November 2008 when it was replaced by the point based tier 2 visa. It provided an opportunity for foreign workers seeking to gain valuable work experience in the UK and was often used to enable UK employers to transfer key personnel to the UK from outside the European economic area region. If you decide to change employers, a prospective employer will need to apply for the transfer of the work permit prior to starting work with the new employer.

To be eligible for a work permit you need to have a job offer from a viable employer in the UK. It is granted to a person with a specific role and within specific company and the permit holder must be able to accommodate any dependant without needing help from public funds. The application for a UK work permit is made by the sponsoring employer. A work permit holder can apply for their dependant to join them in the UK and they are granted permission to work and attend school without restriction.
