  • Living together for the time of one year.
  • Even the married couple have to give the proof they are in a relationship. They can show proof of 6 months of living together.

For the first 2 years, the visa is provisional. After that, the immigration will get in contact with you to check if you are staying together and grant you permanent residency.
