Resolved Question:

, I am looking advice. I have recently married a Ukrainian woman in Ukraine. We want to apply visa to come to UK. Her English is not very good at moment so she will fail the language test required me on as family of a settled person. Would we be better to apply visitor visa so she can come her and learn English, then apply of settled person visa when her English is good enough?
Thanks,
Chris

You are correct in that she would need to pass a language test. If she can't do so at the moment then she should apply six month visitor visa so that she can learn English.

Thanks, ***** ***** worth applying 2 year visitor visa so that my wife can visit regularly. Pass the English exam in England and then apply to remain in England or would it be better to return to Ukriane and then apply for "join permanent family" visa?

Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
That would be a fabulous idea, and hopefully she would learn English and then be able to get a permanent visa thereafter.

Ok, I believe she can only stay maximum of 6 months at a time, how long will she have to return to Ukraine she can return to UK if she has a 2 year visitor visa?

Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
There's no rule as long as she returns after six months. She could come back immediately.
