Hello,

No, a general visit visa does not allow him to marry you in the UK, he needs a special marriage visit visa or a fiancee visa for that purpose which he needs to apply for in Nigeria at the British High Commission.

Hope this helps

Wat about if we went to turkey can we get married there ?
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 4 years ago.
You would need to check with Turkish officials, unfortunately, we are UK solicitors, not Turlish lawyers anc cannot advise on Turkish law.
