My girlfriend was born in Singapore in 1957 whilst it was still

Resolved Question:

My girlfriend was born in Singapore in 1957 whilst it was still a British colony. She lived there for 32 years before moving to the USA where she is now a citizen of that country. Her parents were Portuguese/Indian and were Singapore citizens, her mother still lives there after over 80 years. Can she apply for a UK visa under the British Colony/Commonwealth arrangement that was in force until 1959?

Hello,
How long does she intend to come to the UK for and for what purpose please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

She intends to live here with me and we will eventually get married.

Thank you.
Unfortunately she does not qualify for a UK visa from her background but she will qualify for a UK fiancée visa if you sponsor her for such a visa to enable her to come to the UK as your fiancée, marry you here and then switch to a spouse visa.
See here for information on the fiancée visa
