Changes to the Armed Forces immigration rules: update: There has been a delay to the implementation of the proposed Armed Forces Immigration rules, the new rules are now not due to come into effect until October 2013. The current transition period is therefore extended until this time. If you are married to a soldier who has become a British Citizen and you have not applied for the 2 year 'spouse visa', you are still able to apply for this under the rules in place prior to 9th July.
