We were thinking of Austria as he's there at the moment , as today he went to Salzburg to see when he would be having a interview to review him being there., but all they said he has to wait as there are loads. But not really sure what to do for the best at moment

Hi
I am afraid that he will need to pass his English Test before he can receive his spouse visa so that is where you need to concentrate your efforts
Once that is well advanced you can make the applictaion
