Is it possible to get marraige visa to uk while on student visa in Switzerland?
 
I am a British citizen my fiance is in Switzerland on student visa. He will be there for a year. is there any chance he could apply for prospective marriage visa/ Fiance visa to uk while he is already on student visa in swiss.

should i have to travel to Swiss and marry him?

anyhow he will be moving down to uk for a 6 months period on internship. so far in my search i have found out that a person can marry only if they come to uk on a marriage/ fiance visa right?

is there any other way? is there any chances he could apply for prospective marriage while he is on student visa?


We have planned to get married by early next year :) just want to check if he could come down here to uk and get married.

To get a marriage license in the UK, you need to live at one UK address for at least 7 consecutive days, and prove this with some kind of bill (electricity, gas, hotel). This has to be less than a year before the wedding.

There may be other difficulties depending on his nationality, but they seem to be minor for EU citizens.

We are aware of the basic requirements!

such as...

he need to be here 9 days from the date he arrive uk before we give the notice for legal marriage and so on...what all we need...

My question is is it possible for him to get a prospective marriage visa from Switzerland to uk.

He is an Indian citizen cutterntly living in swiss on a student visa.

We need to find of if there i any chance he could apply for the fiance visa straight from swiss or he has to go back to india and apply from there.

He should contact the British Consulate here as he needs a visa to enter and he should disclose the fact that you're intending to marry.

Denmark is an option btw. I would say from LMGTFY that this could well be an option.
