UK Fiancee Visa or UK Marriage Visa for a US Citizen?
My Fiancee and I are planning to get married in August in the US then shortly afterwards she will travel and live with me in the UK.
I was just wondering what is the best visa to get? We were thinking of the following 2 options…..
1) MARRIAGE VISA – We were thinking of legally getting married then having our wedding afew months later so then we would have time for the visa to be processed.
2) FIANCEE VISA – We were thinking of applying for a Fiancee Visa, getting married in the US then travelling to UK and then getting married in a registry office ASAP.
Could anyone please let me know what we be the quickest and easiest, or if you have any ideas we haven’t thought about?
Getting married first and getting a spousal visa would be faster. It doesn’t take long to get either visa, I know of one couple who got it in less than a week, but if she comes to the UK on a fiance visa you will have more paperwork here. Make sure you bring proof of having a home for her to live in and proof that you earns enough to support her.
You can’t bring her to the UK on a fiancee visa if you marry her in the USA. Doing that would void her visa.
