There's no minimum period, so there is no problem with her coming back.

The only rules/guidance are that visitors should normally spend less than 6 months in the UK within a 12 month period and no visit should be more than 6 months.

South Africans are visa nationals - your friend will require a tourist visa prior to travelling. I believe she may be able to obtain one at the British High Commission in the Netherlands. I am not sure of the actual timescales involved. From the literature, it would appear anything from 5 to 15 wor...

Re: please advise...to all you great minds -settlement visa

Your husband's money might help but not really important because you are the sponsor, you need to prove your fitness in sponsoring your husband to the UK. That's not true as they are a couple, so what is his is hers (but not usually the other way round...). I agree with you but the ECO would not be...

No they did not take us to court. I think it may be the interview when you get your passport or get your nationality, not sure. Someone mentioned there was an interview at some stage during the process. There is an identity interview when your husband applies for his passport. At that point he need...

With benefits it is fine for the British citizen to claim any benefits they are entitled so, it's additional benefits that they can't claim. So no problems at all in claiming child benefit. How long have they been married? If it's over 4 years it means she can apply for ILE/ILR (residency) as soon a...
