Your time on a visit visa will not be counted towards the two years. So you will fall short of the two years.CanadianUK88 wrote: ↑Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:31 amCorrect me if I’m wrong but you don’t need to be a citizen of a country or hold a valid visa to rent/buy property and have utilities in your name also you can register to vote on a visitors visa. I just find it hard to believe with that being true they wouldn’t take my time on a visitors visa as living together akin to marriage, yes I had to go home for no longer than a month to sort out some things and wait for my visa to go through.
My question above may be significant in assessing an Unmarried Partner visa application.
