The visa will be valid for 33 months wherein your Thai wife will then have to apply for permission to stay in the UK permanently. It can be extended to five years wherein it would be possible to apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR); she will then be able to apply for UK citizenship.

The wife needs to undergo a language skills test from an approved test provider. Her language ability is required to be checked as she would need to be able to converse while staying in the UK. Here is a list of the documents needed:

  • –          Current passport or any valid travel document
  • –          Proof of relationship
  • –          Police clearance certificate
  • –          Proof of financial ability to meet and maintain the requirements
  • –          Proof of knowledge of the English language if above 18 years old
  • –          Tuberculosis test results

If you are planning on taking your Thai girlfriend back to the UK then ensure that she has not been deported before from the UK as it is not that uncommon. Also ensure that you have the correct visa such as a fiancee visa for your Thai fiancee and a UK Spouse visa for your Thai wife. Do not use a tourist visa for the UK for this as this may create problems later as they may view this as fraud. Check with the UK Embassy for any changes or speak to a lawyer in Thailand.
