Hello!

Quick question: I just arrived in the UK with a marriage visa. I see in visa webpage that I cant work, but I would like to know if this applies only to paid work, or does it also apply to voluntary work?

Thank you.

While not specific to marriage visa - either marriage visitor or fiancé(e), the new visitor appendix V states:
A visitor may undertake incidental volunteering, provided it lasts no more than 30 days in total and is for a charity that is registered with either the Charity Commission for England and Wales; the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland; or the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
So you will be on safer ground by sticking to this definition.

ah yes! seems that this is brand new (april 2015).

I guess here they mean 30 days no mater the length of the workday rather than 30 work days of 8hrs ( 240hrs ) as is the case in other countries.
