If a UK woman marries a Turk in th UK, will the Turk still

This answer was rated:

If a UK woman marries a Turk in th UK, will the Turk still require a visa to return here? He is currently doing a med degree in Turkey and is over here for a certificated English qualification and a holiday, going back to continue degree on 1 September, with 2 years left. Not a work visa wanted.
Hi, thank you for your question, I will be happy to help you today.
If the UK partner marries the Turkish national, then if he wishes to exercise his right as a partner of a British National then he would need to apply for a spouse visa, he is unable to return to the UK just on the basis of marriage without having the required visa.
However, the spouse visa will only be issued if the Turkish national will be residing in the UK permanently after the marriage, if he wishes to return to turkey and undertake his studies there, then he would not be eligible to apply for a spouse visa because he would not be residing in the UK permanently.
Therefore for now after marriage he would need to continue applying for a visit visa to the UK and will not be able to enter the UK just on the basis of his marriage.
I hope this answers your question if however you feel that the answer does not cover all the points raised in your question please do not hesitate to ask further questions until you are satisfied with my answer.
Kind regards
