I need to apply for a visa for my wife from Bangladesh. I am living in UK from 2019 and have pre-settled status under the EU settlement scheme. I came from Italy and I have permanent resident of Italy. However my nationality is Bangladesh.

On Gov.uk there is a feature "check if you Need a Visa". I go through the question and answer system on behalf of my wife. At one point I see this option.

this is the question

I am ok with option 3. After that the system says "You must usually apply for a family visa."

On family visa section The requirement is as below.

family visa requirement

My question : Is the option Three good for me ?? Can I sponsor my wife for family visa ? However I know there is other requirement of family visa.
