How to Survive the UK Spouse Visa Interview?

UK Spouse Visa Interview

If you are called for an interview as part of the UK Spouse Visa application process, it is something that you must take very seriously. Sometimes it is the applicant who is called for an interview, sometimes it is the sponsor, and sometimes it is both parties. The reason that you have been called in is that the Embassy has concerns about your application – usually the legitimacy of your relationship.


What you need to know


  • The interview may be conducted either in person or over the phone. In either instance, the interview should not be underestimated. Not treating the meeting seriously will almost inevitably lead to the application being declined
  • Being nervous is to be expected, but you need to be clear and precise with the answers. A translator can be made available if you are not confident about giving answers in English


What questions are you likely to be asked?


Although it is impossible to prepare entirely for the interview, there are some questions that you can expect. These include:

  • Questions about previous visa application to the UK or elsewhere and if you have ever been refused
  • Questions about how you met, how you usually communicate together, for example, Skype, email, Messenger
  • Questions about your husband, for instance, his hobbies, religion, what you most like about them


What are they looking to establish in the UK Spouse Visa interview?


The primary objective of the interview is to establish if your relationship is genuine. Some points that will cause alarm with your UK visa application will include:

  • You have spent little time together and/or married shortly after meeting
  • Your sponsor is struggling to meet the financial requirements, or there are concerns about meeting the conditions in the future
  • You are clearly not compatible
