Can you confirm that the person is question is on a spouses visa at this moment in time?
We have applied for permission to marry, and then I understand that once married we need to apply for a spouse's visa for him, but I just wanted to know if, while on a spouse's visa would he be able to travel, for example to his country for a short holiday, and then return to the UK.
Right, yes - you can travel to other countries and re-enter once you have received a spouses visa. There is no prohibition on traveling per se but you should not be out of the country for more than 90 days in any one year, otherwise it will affect your ability to apply for ILR after you have otherwise completed the requisite period of residency in this country.
