My fiancé is Canadian and we applied for a marriage visa to the UK, planning to have the legal wedding in the UK and a celebration in Canada. (We plan to permanently live in Canada and I have the relevant visa for that.) When applying for the marriage visa (lasts 6 months and can only be obtained if we don’t plan to stay in the UK) my fiancé didn’t submit enough information and his application was rejected. He’s flying to England on May 7th and flights are all booked. We will now no longer be able to get officially married in England so will just have a party here as everything is already paid for and then officially get married in August when I move to Canada. We both have a flight to Canada July 14th and have a holiday booked July 1st; we’re going to Malta. My fiancé will just come to the UK without a visa as he will now be just visiting and Canadians don’t need visas in the UK if they’re staying 3 months or less.
I am scared he’ll not get through the border. Will they know about the rejected marriage visa? Will it affect his admission as a visitor?
