The UK Government has announced that the age at which a visa applicant can apply for entry clearance on a marriage visa is to increase from 18 to 21 from the end of this month.


In the UK Border Agency statement it was revealed that as from 27 November both parties in a marriage will have to be 21 before a marriage visa can be issued.


The measure is being introduced as part of the Government’s work to crackdown on forced marriage and abuse the marriage visa route.


Border and Immigration Minister Phil Woolas said:


“It is important that we protect vulnerable young people and this measure will help avoid exploitation”.
