I found out my wife entered into a marriage of covenience with a EEA citizen while still married to me. We still live together as husband and wife. They've submitted an application for a spouse visa. She's done the biometrics

Will she be subject to a 10 year ban? Will the Home Office follow up on my information?

Can I apply for a visitor's visa to see a friend or will I be impacted by her pending application? My friend sent an invitation letter for her and I. Should I have her just send letter for me? I have no intention to settle there. I am a employed here in Canada and i'm very connected to my community. We're both citizens of Barbados and permanent residents in Canada.

Thanks in advance.

    Can I apply for a visitor's visa to see a friend or will I be impacted by his pending application? No, you’re not going to be made to carry his cross. – user 56513 Jan 6 '19 at 10:20
  • When asked in Jan this question was about your husband, and today has been changed to wife and all gender pronouns have swapped, any reason why? – Uciebila Dec 4 '19 at 13:31
  • @Uciebila most likely because she does not want to be identified. A pathetic attempt because edit history is saved on this site forever. – greatone Dec 4 '19 at 14:10

Everyone in theory is approved or denied on their own merits. Even if a person is affected by a related persons crime, in your case chances of an adverse effect are remote considering you’re the one who reported the crime.

My friend sent an invitation letter for he and I. Should I have her just send letter for me?

That of course would be preferable. Extricating yourself from an association with such a blatant law breaker would be viewed positively by all parties including UK immigration.

Will he be subject to a 10 year ban? Will the Home Office follow up on my information?

He will if it’s investigated and conclusive evidence is established. Under the current immigration climate, that is very likely.Tolerance for illegal immigration is at perhaps an all time low.

1.2 RFL5.2 How long are applicants automatically refused for?

  • 10 years if they practised deception (which includes using false documentation) in support of a previous visa application.

TL:DR

None of my business, however why do you tolerate this and continue to associate with such a person? Perhaps your residence in Canada is tied to him? For your own sake consult an immigration & criminal attorney in Canada. I don’t know about Canadian law however sometimes knowing about a crime and not reporting it is in itself a crime and your residence in Canada could be in jeopardy.
