Thanks. You didn't answer one buit of my question which is teh key point I can't find on teh UKBA website: "If we get a fiancé visa, can we then get married in Turkey, return to the UK and apply for the married visa from the UK using our Turkish marriage certificate? Or do we need to get married in the UK?"
If we apply for the fiance visa, could he come and stay with me in the UK on that visa but we then fly to Turkey to get officially married? We would rather marry there so that both our families can be present at the ceremony. We would then return to the UK, register our Turkish marriage certificate here and then apply from within the UK for the spouse visa. Is that possible or does the fiance visa require us to marry in the UK?
