UK fiance visa or UK prospective marriage visa is an entry route to the UK. This is a part of the "Family visa" category. With this visa, you are allowed to come to the UK if your fiance is a British Citizen or has settled status in the UK. This is a short term visa that allows you to stay in the UK for six months. You must marry your fiance in those six months to live with your partner beyond six months for which you need to apply for a UK spouse visa. Your fiance needs to sponsor you. So, you are the applicant and your fiance is your sponsor. Unlike other partner visas, you and your fiance need not have lived together before applying for the visa.
