    Hi just a quick question.Just got married in the UK on a fiancee visa
    Am I right in saying my wife can't work until she has been granted FLR M even if she has a NI number.
    And if you book a biometric appointment and it falls outside the original 6 month fiancee visa closing date that's okay ?
    Thanks.

    You can get a job without a BRP or expired BRP by the potential employer using " The right to work web site" this tells the employer if the applicant is allowed to work.
    You can get a card prior to looking for work indeed it is more helpful to have one.

    From memory, my wife applied for - and received - her NINo soon after we were married (on a fiancee visa) and she had received her first FLR(M) Visa/BRP, well before she secured employment.

    my wife already had her NI number from her years ( 2008-12 ) on a student visa--which permitted work in those days. Which was her principle reason for coming over here. However the Visa for settlement ( marriage) or " fiancee" visa--does not permit work.
