Applying for a fiancee visa is probably your only option though it may be interesting as the British Consulate are likely to check to see if your 'fiancee' is married, which she is, though to you. Will my spouse have any chance in getting a Fiancee visa according to above as she married to Burmese ...

Am I missing something? OP said his ILR was invalid since he failed to apply after getting a returning resident stamp, so how can he be a BC? I know i've missed something! I presumed his ILR was invalidated after he got BC (it should have been invalidated for more than the reasons mentioned because...

Well, you say you hold dual citizenship, but your original citizenship doesn't allow dual, so really as far as your original country (Burma?) is concerned you are actually not dual and are holding the passport illegally. And as it does it readily accept marriages to foreigners, you probably married ...

A very key question, as depending on her citizenship she may be able to use just 5(2) even if she hasn't got a Residence Card.

I don't think it's clear cut: is his proposed stay of more than 6/12 months an indication that Sydney Guy is intending at the time of his visit to "base" himself in the UK? If he retains significant ties to Australia, along with an intention to marry somewhere other than the UK and then return to A...

Depends if you think you can carry enough proof of your intentions with you when you travel, and are willing to take the chance of being turned away. What ongoing commitments do you have in Australia alongside your travel plans for the wedding? Do you have a job, property, financial commitments to ...

You could have applied for naturalisation within 3 months of entering Australia. You would have, perhaps , satisfied the residential requirements then. Only if it was a holiday and you were going to return to the UK would you stand some chance, otherwise you don't meet the requirement "have been re...

In some cases it is possible to get British citizenship whilst not in the UK, but unfortunately just being married to a 'normal' British citizen is not enough. If you want British citizenship you need to return to the UK and live here for at least 9 months. I thought they scanned visas/passports on ...

In 2012 ILR will probably have been replaced by probationary citizenship (which isn't the final stage in the immigration path) so the rules may have changed. I'm guessing there will be even less chance of you being eligibile if you aren't resident here.

Presumably with no housing costs to take into account, even that £1000 will help. But do make it clear that assuming the visa is granted, one of you will be going out to work, and that can even apply while she is still on a fiancée visa, because while she cannot do paid work at that stage, there ...

He can come on visit visa for the time being As he has already applied for and been refused a settlement visa a few years back he may be refused a visitor visa anyway as the ECO may believe he's going to try to use it to settle anyway.

Not personally convinced that you can claim that a man under the age of 65 who has been working full-time until now actually needs care....

You are limited with other options, even a visitor visa might be difficult, and may make it more difficult to get a visitor visa.
