Sorry for all the questions.

On the (Fiance Visa application) VAF4A form it asks if you have a home office reference number?
What is that actually and should my fiance have one?
She is not aware of one. And she currently has a UK Visitor Visa?
?

Unlikely. You are only likely to have one if you made an application in UK to change or extend your visa. It will consist of the first letter of your surname followed by 7 to 9 digit number.

And in 6.4 it asks Have you been granted any UK visa/EEA Family Permit in the last 10 years?
Does her current 6 month Visitor Visa valid until Sept 2013 count? And would she have a reference number for this? So many questions seem vague or poorly worded to my feeble brain. :-(

Only if it's a physical visa sticker in her passport, not 6 months stamped at the airport.

Sorry Joppa, I'm confused? So does she put this visitor visa down in q 6.4 on the form or not?
regardless of having a reference number.?

Yes, it's a sticker with 9 digit number top left. Is that the Home Office ref number?
If so does she put visitor visa in section 6.4?

I see, So what should she put in the space for Q 6.4 where it asks "Have you been granted any UK visa/EEA Family Permit in the UK in the last 10 years?
It wants Date, Purpose, Duration and Reference Number.

Does it mean duration of Visa or duration of visit?
Does it mean purpose as in type of visa or purpose as in type of visa?
Does reference number mean visa number or home office number?
Does date mean date of issue or date of stay?

So confusing these forms. :-(

Date: Date issued.
Purpose: Visit, study, work etc.
Duration: Length initially granted, such as 6 months, 1 year etc.
Reference number: Visa number on the visa sticker itself on top RH corner in red.
