What if he didnt want permanant residancy in the uk, is there an option of getting him a long visa for sale 5 years? so he can come and go as he pleases?
If he wanted to be able to return would he be able to take dual nationality?
He could speak to the British Embassy about a visitor's visa, but it's not really appropriate for his circumstances and may effect the UKBA's view on any subsequent dependent visa he would choose to make in that they would ask why after applying as a visitor do you now consider that you are dependent.
He would not be eligible for dual nationality until he has been in the Country for ten years I'm afraid.
I hope this clarifies, if so please kindly click accept. Kind regards,
