    Visit Visa's

    Post  ruby on Wed Jan 18, 2012 7:10 am

    I have to say that I've noticed a trend in women bringing their Turk over to the UK on a Visit Visa in the winter and then return back to Turkey for the summer season. This appears to be happening more and more each year, they winter in the UK and summer in Turkey.

    That of course is fine if the Turk meets all the legal requirements to visit the UK. However, I wonder if these women have ever thought to themselves that if one day they want to apply for Settlement in the UK that they may be refused on the basis that the British Embassy may say that as they can financially support and maintain themselves in Turkey, that they have a settled life in Turkey, then the UK partner should reside and settle in Turkey and not the UK.

    This scenario has happened to someone I know quite well and should be considered when women and askim are coming over to the UK regularly for winter holidays (a one off holiday is not a problem), that the British Embassy can and will use this reason to decline a Settlement Application.

    Thats worrying me now. I was thinking we might try for a visit visa the end of this year but if it means we loose our chance of settlement visa in the future is it such a good idea? I thought you could get both?

    Hi Yohan

    Of course you can get both, although a Visit Visa is terribly difficult to obtain.

    However, if you make repeated Visit Visa applications year in year out and then spend the summers in Turkey, then the British Embassy ask 'why dont you settle in Turkey?'

    Dont worry, we can advise you nearer the time Cool

    Visit visas seem to be easier to get now than they ever used to be.

    I think some are taking advantage of this situation, and having just a few months here at a time, in order to get around the language requirement that is needed to obtain a settlement visa.

    Of course they can't work here legally doing things that way but I'm sure many do a bit of hush hush cash in hand work while they're here so it's the best of all worlds for those who aren't up to doing the language test.

    I hope you don't think I was intending on him working over here on a visit visa. He will just come over as a tourist and to see me, meet my family. He would not break the law and I would never let him do that. All we want to do is go on visits and tours around the area and down to London, just the normal type of things tourists do.

    Hi Yohan

    The comments were not aimed at the genuine tourists like you have mentioned in your post, so stop worrying. Have you never watched UK Border Force?, its based on people who come over on a Visit Visa and vanish from the system.

    Then you have women who bring askim over for 6 months during the winter, ask yourself how they manage to financially sustain their stay, they dont make much money working the season in Turkey, so unless they bum around and scrounge off family members, where do you think they earn a bit of 'cash in the hand', from the local kebab shop of course.

    Hi Yohan,

    I can't see where anyone suggested your boyfriend would work on the sly, while here on a visit visa. Of course, some visitors no doubt do work illegally, and when you take into account many of them have hardly any savings - you do need to wonder how the men finance their stays! With all due respect, some of the women who sponsor these men have financial obligations of their own - so it isn't even as though they could support the man for months on end - let alone keep him entertained! lol
