schmutzie 9 Posted February 11, 2011 Share Posted February 11, 2011 OK, this is the full topic/question: I'm not UK born, but from an EU country and have been residing mostly in the UK for the last 10+ years. I met my Thai GF on holiday start of 2009. I moved to Thailand from the UK and lived with her for the last year or so. I'm now returning to the UK and would like her to join me. I assume I would apply for her UK visa from the UK embassy. But as I'm not born in the UK or a UK citizen, would this likely throw a spanner in the works? Ie. she will be applying to join an EU citizen in the UK. I will talk to the embassies, but I've been wondering for a while what the MO will be. Also, with regards to visa, when we get to that stage: Of course we can go the route of applying for a student or friendly-visit visa, but I'm leaning towards a fiancee/wife type visa. Is it better we simply marry now, here in Thailand, to at least have that in the bank sooner rather than later or is that premature? I basically want to have the most freedom with regards to her being able to work or study or a combination there of when in the UK and not have a 6 month visa deadline looming over our heads. I know these are kind of big questions and will probably require more details. But for a start, it would be nice to know if anyone has any experience with a visa application to the UK where the guarantor is a non-UK citizen.
