So I’ve been reading this forum anonymously the last three months, as I applied for the Global Talent Visa. Yesterday I received my endorsement letter. I’m absolutely thrilled. Thanks to everyone who shared their tips and experiences here — very helpful.
I am preparing my stage 2 application for the home office, and I have a question: Does anyone else have any experience applying with your dependent, who is your unmarried partner? Any specific documentation that helped that process go smoothly?
I am aware of all of the extra fees; I’m primarily curious about what documents might help “prove” this is a long-term unmarried relationship.
For context, we have been together for more than three years and have had leases together for 2.5 years, so I have plenty of ways of documenting our relationship.
I appreciate any insight, knowing full well no one here can provide legal advice — just looking for anecdotes or tips to help the final process go smoothly! See you in the UK soon, fingers crossed!
