that is what I did the problem is that it never gave me a choice of how long I would be there. It automatically gave me the unlimited one and charged me 1400 rather than the 365 for a 2 year visa which I should have been able to get maybe through the visiting option
At this point its kind of moot as I registered my biometrics yesterday and I don't think I can get a refund anymore
Honestly I have read the entire website and all of the relevant immigration laws for this particular situation and I think I know it better than you seem to,
There IS a 2 year visa for marriage. as well as a 6 month visa for marrying in the uk but not staying there. In fact one of the things I read said that they will "typically" give you permission to stay for 2 years with "a mind towards settling in the future"
thanks for your time but really I don't think you specialize in immigration and I suspect you have never used the website which is the part I was having a problem with as it does not match the actual laws but rather was written for people that don't know the laws.
I thank you for your time but really you don't know any more than I do and to continutally send me back to the same website which I say is not clear is a waste of both our time. could you please opt out and maybe there is an expert that does specialize in immigration there ?
It seems ALL immigration law is old. Looking at the laws to get into the US you can be a member of al quida and you can have ebola no problem but you have to swear that you are not an active member of the Nazi party and don't have pre marital sex.
I have been all over the website. I have looked at the actual laws. My problem is not that I don't know where to look on the website for the law. My problem is that the website has contradictory information on it and there is no link that says CLICK HERE to get that visa. Instead you have to go through the 1 size fits all "get a visa here" link and answer questions. those questions put me into a marriage visa which has no choice of how long you stay and costs 1400 dollars where as there are other parts of the website that give you the option of 2 3 or 5 year visa's for marriage and cost 300 500 and 1000 instead. Yet there seems no way to get to them.
As it is I already paid them and had my biometrics taken so I don't know if I can get a refund. I would be happy to pay you if you can tell me how to get the 2 or 3 year visa with option to re apply after it expires which seems exactly the same thing but costs 1000 less. If you can get me that and my thousand back than I will be happy to accept your answer with a bonus.
But I am pretty sure that your colleague never actually used the website ( which is HORRIBLE ) and so just pointing me back to relevant pages on it does nothing for me. I have already read them all. They just don't match what the website actually gives you and there is absolutely no help at all for navigating the application portion of the website to get what the website says you can get.
