    Default Problems with dates on Visa's for UK from Thailand

    I have posted this elsewhere but just a warning regarding Visa dates. Our marriage visitor Visa finally came through after an escalation from UK.Gov but with the wrong dates. We stated travel on 12th August 2019 and applied 3 months in advance as required in the UK gov site and India put the 20th of June on it as that is when they assessed it which stops us being in the UK at Christmas and New Year. We escalated it to get it changed and they stated that they put the assessment date on the Visa not the travel date. They say that they only put the travel date on the Visa if you apply 3 months in advance, which we did but they seem to have missed this. You cannot reply to the emails and the UK Gov helpline cannot help once a decision has been made. It seems that the timing of your application is essential as you cannot guarantee what they will do with the Visa date. If you do it too soon you can get an early date that you do not want. If you leave it late you can miss your date. You want. A narrow window to be sure. Followed all of the rules to the letter and got stuffed on the date but at least got the Visa. Anybody else had this problem?

    Yes it is a marriage visitor Visa under same category as the visitor / tourist visa. I would recommend marriage in thailand now after our experience so far getting evidence etc together for legal marriage in the uk w quite a job

    We had no difficulty at all. The local Registrar guided us through the process. The only issue I found at all was proving that my wife had lived here in the UK for enough time. Ten days, if I remember. One of my neighbours wrote a letter explaining that she had chatted to my wife every day when she came to the UK. She also let me have a copy of her council tax bill to show she was our neighbour. That was all. It took two weeks for the Thai Embassy to send the documents to the Registrar showing that she was free to marry.

    She was here on a fiancée visa. She arrived in March and we married on June 25th. (3rd anniversary today.). FLR applied for a day or two before her visa ran out.

    I started enquiries about the wedding the week she arrived.

    You have to give 29 days notice to get married in the UK.
