In order for the thai lady to come to the UK in the fiance category, you must be currently living in the UK and settled here or returning to the UK with her to live here permanently.
In addition, both you and your fiance must be at least 21 years old. Additionally, you must both show that:
Your thai lady must obtain permission to enter the UK before travelling here. This permission is known as 'entry clearance', and takes the form of a visa or an entry clearance certificate. To obtain it, she should apply to the British diplomatic post in the country where she lives. For more information, see the visa services website.
If the UKBA allow her to come to the UK in the category of fiance, she will normally be given permission to stay here for six months. She must not work during this time. After you have married, she can apply to stay here as the wife of a settled person. If UKBA approve this application, they will give her permission to live and work here for two years. Near the end of the two years, if you are still married and intend to live together, she can apply to settle here permanently.
Please also note that from autumn 2010, your thai lady will need to show that she can speak and understand English if she wants to enter or remain in the UK as the fiance or wife of a British citizen or a person settled here.
