The Civil Partnership allows same-sex couples to have their relationships legally recognised. The status confers similar rights and responsibilities as civil marriage across a wide range of legal matters.
Those subject to immigration control wishing to register a civil partnership will be required to demonstrate that they have:
An entry clearance granted for the purpose of registering a civil partnership, or
A certificate of approval from the Home Office, or
Settled status in the UK
