My girlfriend from the United States will be coming to stay with me from the 29th of December. How long can she stay? Also, can she not appply for a long-term visitor visa while she's here? She won't be working or anything. I'm supporting her fully but she'll just be living in my house. Marriage is an option later on, however, right now, for the first year. We're just keeping it simple. I need some advice on what I can do. I'd like to see her on a normal visitor entry visa for 6 months, I believe? But then I want to return to the States for a few weeks with her. But she'll have to stay? Also if we travel out of the country in Europe, does that count against the total of days she can stay? I'm all a bit confused and need your help. This is very important to us as she's going through depression and needs my support.
Can we apply for a long-term visitor visa while she's here?
