I am a UK citizen by birth who has been living in Australia for the last 25 years. I now want to return to the UK with my Australian citizen partner of 20 years. Does anyone know the full process involved, type of visa required etc. I was initially advised they need to apply for a settlement visa which seems more geared for when the UK citizen is already in the UK. Any advice/help greatly appreciated.

    It is indeed a settlement visa that is indicated in this case. It does not matter whether you are already in the UK or are returning with your partner. – phoog May 27 '17 at 1:08
  • The full process is documented in books, on many websites and with lawyers - it's not really something we can write in a couple of paragraphs. Putting on hold as too broad for now. – Mark Mayo Jul 25 '17 at 9:01
