EEA Family VISA. Looking to move back to the UK to be with my German fiance who lives and works in England.

Recommended Posts

Stuck between either wanting to go the K-1 route and have my fiance marry here and start her journey in the States or going back to England for a couple more years to live, work and travel. My German fiance currently lives and works in England and we have heard of the EEA Family VISA the UK offers which would allow me to share the same rights she has to live and work there. Does anybody have any information on this VISA, suggestsions or advice? I have read it is free, but have read it's best to hire lawyers and use a courier service to speedy up the process from initial filing to stamp in passport to under two weeks. How long does the whole process work without lawyers and couriers?

Just looking for any information at the moment. Will be making a stop to google to search for a UK VISA forum next but thought I'd begin my information seeking here.

Thanks in advance,
