Well, the quickest way to get him over would be by way of a visitor's visa. He would have to apply directly to the British embassy in ghana for a 6 month visa. He would have to show that:-
- He wants a visa for no more than six months (ie.by a statement from him and a letter from you explaining the reason for the visit);
- He intends to leave at the end of the 6 months (statement from him)
- He has enough money to support himself with the need to access public funds (ie. bank statements)
- He does not intend to undertake paid or unpaid work (statement)
Provided he can show the above he can come here for a 6 month period.
It would take a lot longer (2 month minimum) to apply for a fiance visa. He would have to apply to the British Embassy showing that:-
- You plan to marry ere within 6 months
- That you will live here permanently as man and wife
- that you have met before
- that there is somewhere for you both to live without the need to access public funds
- that you can support each other without the need to access public funds
- neither of you are under 21 years of age.
He would not able to to work so if you are in financial difficultly the it would be difficult to obtain a fiance visa in this way I'm afraid, and going for a 6 month visitor's visa would be th better option.
Were he to apply for a fiance visa he would need to to apply for settlement (ie. fiance visa) by using VAF4 Settlement, available for download from UKBA's website. It would be best for either a solicitor in the UK to prepare it in consultation with both you and your wife before submitting it.
