Hi,

one of my friend is on Tier 1 General that is due to expire next Feb (but eligble to extend as he got good job and initial application was made in Jan 2010).

he is planning to get married next year and would like to bring his wife with him immediately after marriage to the UK from his home country.

in this context,which is the best visa his fiancee should be applying for and what are the pros and cons ?

he wishes to take his wife immediately and does not want to wait to get the dependant visa which I think they can apply only after they get married.

but when I looked up online for him,I found a finacee via type - but that is for people who want to come to the UK to get married - so since he would have
married it looks like it does not apply in this case.

any advice and guidance is much appreciated.

thanks,

There is no fiancée visa for people on temporary categories so he has to wait.

ok thanks Victoria.

so since he is due to extend his Tier 1 (G) in Feb and marriage is later that year --
guess his finacee has to make a seperate application and even that in her home country...

or is there any benefit in applying for dependant visa while my friends extends his Tier 1 (provided they get married by that time)

also I am thinking of possibe options to help my friend - how abt applying for visitor visa for his fiancee (both are financially stable)
so that they can come to UK as sonn as they get married without going to the embassy and having to wait - and then apply as
his dependant in the UK after the visitor visa expires -- any problms in this approach ?

thx in advance for the help.

It won't work - she can't switch in country from visitor.

She should probably wait until he extends and then she can apply for entry clearance.

ok.thanks..but in this particualr case would the visitor visa appeals as that allow them to come to the UK
immediately after marriage and they will both go back to their home country after 6 months to convert
as dependants?

my question is no harm in taking the wife on visitor visa ?

It's possible. But the visa may be hard to get.
