I work overseas in Afghanistan, my fiance lives in an apartment rented by me in the Philippines, I want to marry because I am a British citizen and my family are there. After we are married I will return to my work in Afghanistan and she will return to Manila. As I am not considered a UK resident I cannot support her whilst in the UK although I support her all year round in the Philippines.
I have written a long letter authorising her to stay in my UK property, explaining our personal circumstances and the reasons for everything UKBA questioned on our previous application.
I have also written a separate letter explaining the large sum deposited into her account explaining that it is a gift from me, for these purposes but it belongs to her and she can do what she wishes with it.
I have another concern regarding the same application, although this was not given as a reason for refusal on our previous application we unknowingly registered to marry on her visit visa, the registrar said this was okay at the time and in the previous refusal it was stated that 'I acknowledge that you have visited the UK in the past and have plans in place for a marriage ceremony in September'. This was not a reason for refusal in the previous application, shall we acknowledge that we have made a mistake in this application now?
