Hi Clint,


Thanks for your question.


You do not need to marry her in Laos in order to apply for a fiance visa here. If you did marry her in Laos it would invalidate any fiance visa application you had already made. She will need to apply using Form VAF1F.


If you did marry her in Laos she would then have to make an application for a spouses visa.


Laos law does not impact upon UK immigration law or policy, no need to worr unduly about their "strange laws".
