Hey there everyone!

I am a Malaysian Citizen and my fiance is a Swiss who is currently working in the UK. We got engage a few months ago! YAY! As now I am back in Malaysia and in the midst of applying for EEA Family Permit, I am wondering if by successfully getting confirmation for an EEA Family Permit which requires me to stay in the UK for up to 6 months, are we allowed to get married in the UK? Does it need to be within those 6 months? Or we can get married some place else and register our marriage after that in the UK? (UK is expensive!haha)

And for the supporting documents, is it recommended to include an index on the front page? (I am thinking of using an arch lever file, the one which I need to punch holes at the side). Or should I just put everything into a L-shaped transparent file with the supporting documents arranged according to the list of supporting documents for the EEA Family Permit?

Hope someone can help me!

As far as I can recall, EEA family permit for the unmarried such as fiancee is only issued for those in durable relationship, which in case of UK means two years of cohabitation. If you don't have it, you can't get the permit. So marry outside UK, apply for family permit and then after arrival go for 5-year residence card.
