Update to plans to increase the financial threshold – Family Route

We finally have a date for the first increase in the income requirement to meet when making a new application under the partner route.

From 11th April 2024, the income threshold will rise from the current £18600 to £29000. Further increases are planned but we don’t yet know when.

Extension applications will not be affected for applicants already in the UK and on the family route.

There has understandably been a lot of anxiety about these increased income requirements, particularly as most overseas applicants can not rely on a job offer in the UK but need their sponsor to be earning the relevant amount.

For advice on these changes or for any other aspect of making a visa application please do get in touch.

It is better to take advice in advance of an expensive application being submitted.
