My G/f is currently here on a Fiance visa granted from the 1st of Jan. I would prefer if possible for her to have as long as she can here before we get married. Its a massive culture shock and 6 Months hardly seems very long for her to adjust.
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has sucessfuly managed to extend their Fiance visa.
It does seem a bit bizzare that although you have to show the means to support your partner 100% during her stay she can only stay for 6 months. Meanwhile someone from an EU Country can fly here for £7 via easy-jet and start claiming full benefits after 12 months??
God bless Tony...
