If she applies for a marriage certificate can she then travel to the uk for her 7 days residency to apply for her arc and the return to China and renter the uk at a later date for her wedding

Hi

Thanks for your question. I will try to help.

Unfortunately, marriage visit visas are not granted on a multi entry basis.

They are granted only for 6 months and during this time the holder must enter the UK to marry and then leave the UK after marriage and before the 6 month visa period has expired.

So, after ente4ring on this visa the holder would not be permitted to leave the country and then re-enter to marry at a later date.

Instead, you enter the UK and give the requisite 28 day notice of your marriage, then marry and then lease
