Hi Thomas, my boy friend is a Russian national, and I am British/Russian. He is here on a tourist visa at the moment as he frequently travels to the UK and we thought we could get married in a registry office without getting fiancee visa first. We looked at UKBA website and I became of impression that we could not get married unless he had a fiancee visa or we applied from Russia. But then, if further stated that if partner is already in the UK, (regardless of visa I thought) it was possible to go to designated registry office to give notice to marry. I spoke with many such offices today and none of them requested him to have fiancee visa, only asked what ppt he and i hold. We made an appointment, but have doubts that this marriage will be processed by the UKBA, or refused on the grounds that the rules were bypassed.
