Migrants marrying UK citizens must now learn English
UK Home Office
Compulsory English language tests will be introduced for migrants applying to come to the UK to join their partner or marry, the government announced today.
From Autumn 2010 all non-European migrants will have to demonstrate a basic command of English that allows them to cope with everyday life before they are granted a visa.
The rules will apply to spouses, civil partnerships, unmarried couples, same sex partners and fiancés, and will be compulsory for people applying from within the UK, as well as visa applicants from overseas.
