Second Webinar: Financial Requirements for family migration

12 September 2019 Amna Ashraf Personal Immigration

In this webinar, we cover specifically the financial requirement which is the most predominant of all five requirements. Introduced in 2012, it requires the UK sponsor to be earning at least £18,600 to sponsor their partner with a further £3,800 for the first non-British child and £2,400 for each additional non-British children. We touch upon the variety of different income streams that are allowed and cover the evidence requirement for the most common income streams: employment income and savings. We also outline the possibility of sponsoring your partner if you are on certain benefits.


The six-minute overview is insufficient to fully discuss all income streams, combinations allowed and evidence required. Further information on the law can be found within a schedule to the Immigration Rules called “Appendix FM”. For information of exactly which evidence should be provided for each category, refer to “Appendix FM-SE”. Both schedules span to around 48 pages of text and contain ambiguous terminology which can be confusing to navigate. Our family migration team is at hand to help provide tailor-made advice for your individual circumstances.

If you missed our first webinar, where we provided an overview as to the visa types available and general requirements involved in bringing a loved one to the UK, you can view that video here.
