Civil Partnership is a legally recognised relationship between two people of the same sex which exists under or by virtue of the Civil Partnership Act 2004. If application for visa as a Proposed Civil Partner is successful, the applicant will be granted leave to enter the UK for six months and Civil Partnership must be registered with the Registered in the UK within these six months.
