My husband has a EU settlement states, and I am from Hong Kong, how can I join him in the UK with intention to stay?

15th Aug 2019

My fiance is French, and I am from Hong Kong. We meet in the UK in 2017, but my visa finished so I went back to HK this June. Now, we are getting married on 19th August 2019 in Hong Kong. My husband lives and works in London, and he is in the process of applying EU settlement states, once it successes, what is the best way to join him there with consideration of time and successful rate? A family permit or spouse visa? I interned to stay with him in the UK in long term. 

If eventually he gets a pre-settlement states, what should I do?

    Good morning,

    Congratulations to you and your fiancé for your nearing wedding. 

    In relation to your immigration application to enter the United Kingdom to join your husband after your marriage, an application could be made on the basis that your husband is a French National exercising his rights in the United Kingdom. It is possible to make this application prior to your husband making his settled / pre-settled application. 

    We offer specialist advice in this area of law, therefore if you would like any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me on 07927 199072 or alternatively on
