    Default Which Visa is best

    Hi all, again.



    I am looking for suitable Visa for my GF when the current 6 month Visa runs out, Visa runs from September 2018 until 20 May 2019. She is due to come back to UK in February 2019 for 4 weeks.



    I retire in 2 years and plan on retiring in Thailand and I would like my GF to come to UK for those 2 years and she would like to work and we want to get married in that 2 year period.


    I am not sure what Visa to apply for so that we have maximum time together. If anyone can please offer good advice it would be most appreciated.


    thanx, dave

    That depends on how truthful you want to be. There is no Visit Visa that will let her stay for 2 years - you'd have 12 months. Both Spouse and Fiance visas are forms of settlement and the intention must be that the applicant wishes to settle in the UK permanently. In fact unless they've changed the application form, the applicant is asked how long they intend staying......but of a trick question.

    You haven’t mentioned which visa she currently has. It would help a lot.

    Presumably it is a visit visa? Better to know.

    But it could have been a Fiancée visa! It lasts for six months, the same as a typical visit visa but you have to get married within the six months.

    Unless there are exceptional circumstances you can only stay in the UK for 6 months out of 12 each year.

    The main reason at the time that we got married because we wanted to be together.

    There is no visa that will allow you more than that unless you go for a settlement visa which usually means that you will be making your home in the UK.

    Pretty much what Flip was saying in his post.

    ... even so, the applicant will not be able to work until they have married.

    Indeed! That's what happens when you don't proofread your post after receiving a telephone call midway between typing the reply and hitting [post]
