After 2 unsuccessful visitor visa attempts we finally got the 3rd attempt over the line and we have spent Christmas and New Year together in London. When we made the 3rd application we only requested 15 days. I want my wife to stay for the full 6 months so that she can improve her English and take the A1 English test in London. Obviously there are going to be consequences when we apply for the next visa and I suspect a visitor visa will be out of the question but will this impact on a spouse visa application providing she passes the English test. I did speak to one of my legal friends who has experience with dealing with visas and she mentioned she should go home and comeback a month later which would prove she has complied with the length of staff granted by the home office. Does anyone have any contact numbers in the UK Home Office that I could speak to about wife's travel plans.
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
Happy New Year too you all

If your plan is to go for a settlement visa next, going for the A1 here in the UK, imho, is a bit easier. My wife did exactly that and when she flew back to Thailand she had everything for her settlement visa apart from her TB test which she had the day after she returned to Thailand.
The visit visa is granted for 6 months so she won't be overstaying, just staying (significantly) longer than originally stated. As above can't see it being an issue for future settlement visa, but yes for another visit visa as it'll simply look like she's trying to maximise the 6 month vv as a much cheaper way of "living" in the UK rather than going for settlement
No issue what so ever if for a settlement visa totally different ,but if you apply for a visit visa could be problems ,
Take it like this settlement visa laws are applied to it where a visit visa it seems up to someone in india if you are allowed as long as all questions are ticked i see no reason to why ANY visa is refused .
it seems like its up to some one in India.
where a settlement visa is black and white .
Back to the RHETORICAL Question .
designed to produce a statement from yourself .
No correct answer no right .No wrong .
ITS a rubbish argument and doesnt make sense .
i rest my case its poppycock .
Fill the x in no problem .with any visa .
reason to return' does not apply to a Settlement Visa.
reason not to stay would be better ???
In June 2015, the Bangkok Post reported that, "Thai police officers are paid around 14,760 baht per month (6,800–8,340 baht for entry level) and have to buy their own guns and even office supplies."
great job ye good pay to
Thats a reason to return ,i dont think so .
your talking about a young lady who is on a lot less than that .

Totally confused by your reply Samsung - yes you said a Settlement Visa was 'totally different' - you failed to say why. You are correct that if all the requirments for a Settlement Visa are met, there should be no reason for refusal. However, quite a lot of discretion is given to the ECO on Visit Visa applications and opinions come in to it.
There is no right of appeal on a Visit Visa (the right of appeal on a Family Visit Visa was also removed a while ago) but an ECO is required to give details of why an application is refused. If an ECO is simply unhappy with something but that something doesn't fit with the normal reasons for refusal of a Visit Visa they can simply state that there are insufficient reasons to return - and they do, I've seen it several times.
All done in India now ,
visit visa that is .
I dont think we agree but have past people been truthfull to yourself ,
IE did they have a criminal record spent time in jail been arrested numerous times all there history which could have been picked up by thail /border control you dont know ?
Me myself think the question is like i said rubbish ,
I give one reason to return on my wifes that was she knows the law blah blah blah ,and didnt have a problem she wasnt even working and i give you an example of a police officers wage so that is not great is it .

A example of a reply .
miss g xxxxx knows the law and wouldnt want to jeopardize any future visits we plan on getting married at a later date xxxxx .
SHe knows she wouldnt be able to get hospital treatment or dental care or claim public funds neither would she qualify for a bank account and have access to our public funds she also knows if she breaks any of these terms then future visits could be at risk .
im sure that is better than i have a job paying less than 16,000 baht a month and i wouldnt want to lose it .
Samsung not according to the British Government. They put the weight on a job to return too. As anyone can say I know overstaying would be naughty so i wont do it.
Samsung, just because your wife was lucky does not mean everyone will be. There are plenty of people who have been refused on the grounds of insufficient reason to return. The phrase 'she knows the law and wouldn't do anything to jeopardise future applications' must have been used a thousand times. Whilst it may be useful, I doubt it is any guarantee of success.
