Hello,

Your ex wife cannot marry you in the UK unless she has a specific visa to marry you.

If you both intend to live in the UK after your marriage, she needs to obtain a fiancée visa for the UK from South Africa.

If you only intend to get married in the UK and then live in SA, then she would need to obtain a marriage visit visa for the UK, from South Africa.

If there are no plans to get married just yet as you say, she may simply apply for a UK visit visa.

Hope this helps
