Moving Back To The UK
 
This has been probably asked many times before and I'm sorry to repeat a thread.

I was just curious to know, that if my wife and I decided to move to England, what would I need to do to get her a Visa?

This is something that may or may not happen, but we wanted to know what would be involved and how quickly it could be done.

Here you go, mate. http://www.britainusa.com/visas/othe...5&Other_ID=322

Haven't done it myself, so can't help on the timeframe, but I have heard it is a damn sight faster and cheaper than coming here! $494 and you can now apply online. :)

I'd like to think thats maybe because your average Brit is blessed with at least some common sense - unlike robotic US immigration officials - "Does not compute! I cannot think for myself! I have no initiative! Forms are so complicated even we immigration officals can't understand them anyway!"

http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk is the place to look at.

After three years living in the UK, she would normally be able to apply for British citizenship.

If planning to leave the US - you also need to consider your own status if you're a green card holder and not a US citizen.

The 'moving back to UK' forum is a better place to ask questions about UK visas, immigration and citizenship issues.
