I am planning to bring my Zimbabwean husband to live with me in the UK. I dont have the required finances and am hoping to get a family member to be a guarantor. If he comes on a 6 month visa, will he be able to stay with me if I am receiving housing benefit for where i live? If not, could he stay with friends who own their house while I continue living at home and receiving housing benefit? Or would I have to cancel the benefit for him to be able to come at all?
I can still wait for a while, thanks
please continue. I need an answer to this question
we're just deciding whether to apply for a visit visa or not. For now i think it will be a family visit visa or a marriage visit visa, or possibly a work visit visa but one of the first two is more likely
thanks for the answer, I'll be able to get that letter from the landlord without any problem, so it won't matter that I am receiving housing benefit?
do you know whether it would be easier to get a marriage visit visa than a family visitor visa?
one final question, would it make sense to go for the marriage visit visa if we want to also have a ceremony in the UK? We do want to do this and its been suggested to me that that gives a better reason for him to be coming and therefore more likely for the visa to be granted
and do you know whether this visa is any easier to get than a family visit visa?
