If the UK Fiancée Visa applicant fails to show this by means of solid evidence, the UK Fiancée Visa application will more than likely be denied for lack of eligibility on the part of the UK Fiancée Visa applicant.
But how can the applicant for a UK Fiancée Visa demonstrate that they intend to live together in the UK on a permanent basis?
ECO-Friendly emphasizes that there are a lot of proof that may be presented to the Entry Clearance Officer or E.C.O. in order to confirm their plans to stay together in the UK as husband and wife long after the celebration of their marriage.
One of the best evidence is the Booking Acknowledgment, which is a piece of document issued by the particular Council in the UK where the Filipina applicant for the UK Fiancée Visa and her British sponsor plan to marry.
Although the marriage between the couple may only be registered if both parties personally present themselves at the particular Council where they plan to celebrate the marriage (as previously mentioned in the Fiancée Visa Page of the ECO-Friendly website), there is, however, no bar to the British Fiancée to initially register the planned marriage with the Council even if his Filipina fiancée is still in the Philippines working on her UK Fiancée Visa application.
As a matter of courtesy to the British fiancée, the Council usually recognizes his request and issues a document, sometimes in the form of a receipt, or sometimes in the form of a certificate, which acts as an evidence that indeed, the UK fiancée intends to celebrate the marriage with the Filipina fiancée in that particular Council as soon as the Filipina applicant for the UK Fiancée Visa arrives in the UK but not to exceed six months thereafter.
ECO-Friendly will discuss more on this issue next time…
