    Brick wall visit visa finished now marriage visa

    Hi all,

    my thai girlfriend has just returned to thailand after being in the uk on a visit visa for 6 months and stayed the full 6 months, she applied again in bangkok and she was refused, i now understand that she can only stay 6months in ayear, so now we are thinking that a marriage visa is the way to go?? we don't want the settlement visa as our plans are to stay in thailand in the near future as i allready have a home in thailand just really want her back here for another 6 months, do's anyone know if she would get a marriage visa or is this one the same as a visit visa really??

    Hello Deland and welcome to the forum.

    I am in a similar situation, Mayka having returned to LOS after a fantastic 6 months in the UK.

    Visitors visa and Marriage visa are very different beasts and are not interchangable. Bit of an obvious question really, are you married? Your post refers to your girlfriend.

    My understanding is that your girlfriend will need to wait 6 months from return to LOS to get another VV. However you can apply immediately for a Marriage visa (if married, naturally) or a Fiance visa (to marry in the UK within 6 months). I hope this helps...others will correct me if I am wrong.

    It looks like you know what you want to do. Getting married in Thailand looks like being an great experience, and much cheaper than a UK wedding too. Then apply for a Marriage visa. There are lots of threads on this forum dealing with the mechanics of applying for a marriage visa...just do a search. If you successfully applied for a VV recently then you should have no problems.

    I hope to do the same myself this year

    Good luck

    Mike

    Hi Sean
    Fiance visa is a more expensive way to do things. The initial visa cost is the same as the Marriage visa. Then you have to get married within 6 months in the UK, then apply for Further Leave to Remain (FLR), then Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) after 2 years. I considered this route too. Marriage in LOS removes the need, and expense, of FLR.
    I guess it depends on your personal circumstances as to which is the best for you.

    what it is we don't want to stay here forever just need another 6 months in the uk for her so this is why i wanted the marriage visa then go back to thailand and stay forever (well almost) and the marriage visa is the same cost as the visit visa

    I believe that visa is for foreigners that for some reason want to come to the UK and get married - not where one of the couple is a UK national - I could be wrong.
