Hello, My girlfriend is a filipina, living now for 4 years

Resolved Question:


My girlfriend is a filipina, living now for 4 years in Cyprus. We want to apply for a fiance(e) visa for her to come to the UK and get married. However she was previously deported from Taiwan for overstaying her visa 5 years ago. (Her 3 year visa was cancelled after 2 years because her employer moved to China, and she stayed for 4 months more). What is the likely outcome of this in respect of applying for a UK fiancee visa, or should we look at another option?

You are entitled to apply for a fiancee visa for her to enter the UK. You will need to prove that you have meet and that your relationship is genuine. If issued she will be given a 6 month visa in which you must marry, otherwise she will have to leave the country. If you marry within the six months she can then apply for a spouse visa if you are British yourself. The fact that your girlfriend was deported from Taiwan will not affect the application you make to UKBA.

So you think the deportation is unlikely to adverselt affect the application. We have done research on the requirements and prepared all of the documentation, but are worried that the deportation would be a major problem and result in rejection of the application, even without an interview process. What do you think?

The deportation was in Taiwan not in UK. This will not affect her application to the UK.
