Giving notice to marry on Ancestral Visa

Post by Megan Daniels » Mon Feb 10, 2020 5:31 pm

Hello,

I would just like to find out if we are able to get married at the registry office on ancestral visas. Both of us are on ancestral visas and have been here 3 years .
As far as giving notice goes , will it be atleast 28 days before marriage day or will it be the 70 days I had seen online?

Thank you

Home office decides whether to extend the notice period to 70 days from 28 days. You won't know until home office writes to you after you have given notice.

Hi

Thanks for reply.
I sometimes post questions from family as you can see in my history, so I can see what's cracking to help. It's one place to post things where you get an answer which is great.

Ok great thanks

Yes and nobody answered my question about Ireland ha! But I have found out that all will be ok when we move there.

It would be useful if you posted and stated "asking on behalf of my sister/cousin/brother" etc.or even better, get the extended family to register and ask their own questions as it is their journey at the end of the day. The majority of regular members will look at your past posting history and if you post "your" scenario differently each time, they won't respond or offer advice as feel they might be wasting their time give the range of scenarios and questions posted.

Useful to remember that we are all unpaid volunteers giving our time on the forum.

Ho usually only extend to 70 days if they suspect a sham marriage or marriage of convenience for visa purposes. The majority of people have no issues giving 28 days notice.
