Hello

Technically, your friend is his mistress. He is married, has a wife, kids... and he is having an affair with your friend.

At the moment, there is no "mistress" visa or visas for similar arrangements.

She can go live with him in Egypt.

I have seen many of these stories and I don't remember a single ONE that ended up well.

Whether the friend is the 'mistress' or the legal wife depends on which marriage took place first. :idea:

In Egypt, they are have an "Ourfi Marriage". I have seen some Western women engaging in that when they have a relationship with a local man.

It's not a true marriage. It's just to make sure you don't get arrested under the local laws.

Exactly, which is why I've also asked where the marriage took place.

In which case, your friend has no option to bring her partner to the UK as her spouse, as the marriage won't be legally recognised under British law.
