I am a US citizen, I met my bf while he was here, we have been together for awhile. He had to go back there when his father passed away, and since he overstayed here once on a visitor visa, he has been denied reentry. He has since asked me to move there to be with him and marry him. I have a few questions about the best way to go about this.
He wants me to just get on a plane and come over like a visitor. Ok, fine, but is the UK really strict when you show up? Do they require a return ticket or proof that you are leaving the country? What happens if I was there on a visitor visa and we got married and applied for a marriage visa?
2. If I applied for a fiancee visa, how long does it take on avergae? I have been trying to find cost information, but am having difficulties finding it. I know it says you have to have sufficient money to support yourself (or he has to) during the time. What is considered sufficient? Is there any way to find out?
