Many thanks
Thank you for your question and patience, I’m Tom and I’ll try to help you.
If you are an EEA citizen exercising treaty rights in the UK, then probably the easiest thing to do would be to marry your fiance outside of the UK with him to then apply for an EEA family permit:
Once he has the family permit he can travel to the UK and then apply for a residence card to enable him to work in the UK and settle here with you.
The alternative would be for him to apply for a marriage visit visa, but the problem with this is that the visa is subject to him leaving the UK before the expiry of the 6 months visa
If he did not leave on a marriage visit visa then it would complicated his subsequent application for a residence card because they might regard his not leaving as a breach of his visit visa.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question.
