I am British and am planning to retire and return to England

Customer Question

I am British and am planning to retire and return to England with my South Korean wife of 19 years next year. Will she get an automatic visa? Both our children, with British passports, will be in English universities. I live in Singapore and have been away from England since 1982, working in China, Hong Kong, Australia, Sri Lanka and Singapore. Nick Macfie
