Not possible and totally against the law.

Don't bother asking the Church of England to marry you on a tourist visa... they won't.

They (the Church of England) work in full cooperation with the UKBA and will not approve any marriage license where the foreign national has not received the appropriate permission to remain in the UK. I know this for a fact because not only do they specify as much on their website, the Vicar who performed my wedding said I would need a Common License from the Diocese because I am a foreign national and the Registrar from the Diocese asked to see my Fiancee visa before he would sign the authorisation for the License.

You are replying to an old question about a Croatian national. The situation is complicated as Croatia is due to join EU in July this year. As things stand, I believe Croatians can enter as visitor without visa. If they stay long enough past 1st July, they automatically become EU citizens and can stay in UK as long as they like, and can marry if they want to. They will have restricted access to UK job market, like Bulgarians and Romanians at the moment.

Croatia enters EU July 1st 2013 , Croatian citizens are only allowed to stay in the UK for a max period of 3months and which after that they need to go out and come back in the country , max 180 days within a 1 year period , they will have no rights to work in the UK

All we have at the moment is the Statement of Intent setting out the government's proposal for Croatian nationals post EU accession.
https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...-of-intent.pdf
It states those Croatians who are married to or in civil partnership with a British citizen or a family member of EEA national aren't subject to work authorisation scheme, thus able to take any job in UK like any other EU nationals.
As for length of stay in UK, they can live longer than 3 months if they are self-sufficient, studying, retiring etc. To get work authorisation, they need to meet similar points total to Tier 2 General under the immigration rules. This is to stop them getting low-skilled jobs.
We do need to wait for the announcement of actual rules applicable from 1st July.

Default urgent visa inquiry

hi,

ive spent last 12months having an internship in UK under Tier 5 visa (goverment authrized exchange). The maximum for this category is 12months and my visa is expiring on 22.6. (one week before Croatia joins EU).

Is there any way that I could apply for new visa? If I find a legal way to stay until 1.7. when we join EU, I could apply for a blue certificate and have no more restrictions on the labour market.

i would really appreciate any advice that anyone might have. im still a student in croatia if that somehow helps.

many thanks!

I suppose the best thing to do is to leave UK before your current visa expires and re-enter on or after 1st July. Don't just go to the Republic of Ireland as your passport won't be checked or stamped. Go to somewhere like France, a Schengen country, where Croatians before accession can already stay without Schengen visa. While in theory you can do a daytrip before 22nd June and re-enter UK as a tourist, there will be less hassle at the UK border to delay your return till 1st July.

It's a question of whether you are eligible for work authorisation. Current proposals state there are several conditions under which a Croatian may be given authorisation, one of which is already working in UK for 12 months. The fact that on the accession day, you had worked for a year until 9 days before may make you eligible but I'm not sure.

https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...-of-intent.pdf
" those Croatian nationals who are legally working in the UK on the date of accession and have been legally working for an uninterrupted period of 12 months ending on that date;
those Croatian nationals who work legally for an uninterrupted period of 12 months falling partly or wholly after the date of accession;"

Otherwise you need to be sponsored, as now, for Tier 2 or Tier 5 under points-based system for skilled worker.

We should see definitive rules being announced any time now.

i think that unfortunately i wont be eligible for this 12 month thing cuz it says that 12 months needs to be ending on that date...

my other question is...if i had a visa under tier 5 (work experience) and maximum for that is 12 months - can i go back and reapply for another 12 months after a while?
