    Hi Jane, thanks for that, Whilst she is in Tunisia applying for another visitor (or marriage) visa, could she also submit appliction for settlement at same time? It's such a long trip from her home to Tunis it would be great if she could kill two birds with one stone ;/

    If she applies for a marriage visa instead of a visitor one can she then apply for settlement from UK in the New Year. She's reluctant to go for settlement visa this time as it may take longer to process than say visitor/fiancee/marriage visas and she would like to be in UK for xmas.

    Hi Kris, when you say "via the embassy" do you mean the British Embassy or the Tunisian Embassy (presuming they have one) here in the UK. Were you able to do all this via post or did you need to hand the documents in "in person"? thanks

    A few things that you should know about before marrying a Tunisian man

    Oh okay, i understand now. Yes i think they'd started the app for visitor visa and then got engaged but just continued with the visitor ones as the wheels were already well in motion and they didn't want any delays. thanks Jane x

    A few things that you should know about before marrying a Tunisian man

    It says on the UKBA site that she can 'switch' category to that of a 'partner' (married) if she obtained her visa as a 'fiance' (which she did). So by switching category to "partner" , she will be able to apply for ILR whilst in UK - (if I'm understanding the rules correctly?). I'm still...
