 Post subject: Fiance Visa - confused by options

I'm confused by the choices available on the application website.

My Thai partner plans to come to marry me (UK citizen) and settle in the UK. I believe that the appropriate visa type is known as Fiancé or Family of a settled person, but the application website doesn't use those names. I think that the appropriate choices are: Settlement, Settlement, Marriage.

However, my Thai partner has read on a Thai forum that same sex partners need to use Settlement, Settlement, Proposed Civil Partnership (even though we plan to get married). I can't find official information on this anywhere. It seems strange that there isn't a Fiancé option or Proposed Marriage option.

What has worked for other forum members?

As you plan to get 'married', choose 'settlement - marriage' as fiancé/fiancée. Opposite sex and same sex couples can choose this option.

'Settlement - civil partnership' is for those same sex couples who prefer to enter into civil partnership.

We chose settlement/settlement/marriage and received the fiance visa as intended, it is the correct option for marriage (not for CP).
