we are in a relationship since last October and have met every month since that time. Yes, we will marry in the UK, in London. We already made a notice for a marriage.
I also forgot to mention our age: he is 37,5, i'm 40. Both of us have a high education (he - in law, me - in IT and Engineering). I'm working in IT field since over 14 years.
thank you for your quick reply! I have two questions regarding it:
1. "detailed documentary evidence of the time that we have spent together" - what kind of documents are normally required for that? Are bording passes from my trips and hotel bookings enough? Or they might also request us to show our mail/whatsapp etc correspondence? What is normal in such cases?
2. "You will have to provide your passport or EEA card when your spouse applies so this may restrict your travel anyway unfortunately" - will they take my passport and keep it for a long time? I thought that a copy can be always done nowdays. Or is it not the case in such situation? European citizen are actually allowed to travel also just with an ID card. So i guess that travelling will be possible, but how will it effect the situation, that is another question.
Thanks in advance.
one more question to 2: how long will they keep my passport? What does this time depend on?
Thanks a lot in advance.
Hi Tom ,
did i understand you correctly: they (Home office?) will keep both passports of the applicant and his spouse (mine) for the time it takes to determine the application? is travelling outside UK generally not permitted for me during this time period?
