I am Canadian, my sister is a British Citizen. I plan to go visit and stay up to 6 months.(I do not need a visa for that). Within this period of time, can I get a visa if I apply to stay with her family? My sister does not work, so she can not sponsor me, but I can work and support myself (I am single).
As a visitor, can I apply for a job?
Do you think it is easier to apply now from Canada to join a family member for a long stay, or would that be better to apply to remain in the UK while I will be there? Which option do you think would work better.
I do not have any British grandparents.
She studied there, then got married to a man who setteld and worked in London and got himself his British citizenship. After havinf lived for almost 10 years there, she got hers for being married to a citizen, I guess.
Thank you for your answer, Tom.
When you say she can not sponsor me, do you mean that I can not apply to join family (as family of a settled person visa?)?
You did not say if I could work within the 6 month-visit I plan.
Thank you Tom.
I apologize for the delay, but you must know that you are six hours ahead, what makes effective communication a bit challenging.
Thank you for letting me ask for more clarification.
What if I go visit, meet with some potential future employer, come back to Canada, and apply here for a work permit.
Do you think this would work?
Thank you, ***** *****
Am I allowed to get married to a British Citizen and apply for a spouse visa within the uk?
Do I have to leave the UK and apply from Canada?
Can I apply from Algeria, my country of origin?
Thank you Tom!
Thank you, Tom!
