Thank you for your question and patience, I’m Tom and I’ll try to help you.
Your husband cannot apply for a spouse visa whilst in the UK if he enters on a visit visa. This is because a visit visa is subject to the condition that a person must leave the UK before it expires. If they do not then there are in breach of their visa conditions and the home office may also regard it as a deception. This includes attempting to switch to another visa category.He can enter on a visit visa and see a solicitor whilst here with you in order to prepare his application, but in order to actually apply for a spouse visa he has to return home in order to make the application from his home country.This is enforced very strictly by the home office I’m afraid.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question.
