Family News - Good, For A Change !

DD1, the DoomHamster, has had **good** news.

She has now signed the tenancy lease for her new flat in the Big City, where she also works. She is able to move on the 18th August. The area in which she is currently domiciled in nearby BlogTown is becoming increasingly rough and unpleasant. Her new home has security alarms and intercom entry, as well as secured parking, and the area is more prosperous and calm.

And even more excitingly, her fiance Matt has now got his officially sanctioned "Visa with permission To Wed whilst in the UK", and he is flying over on Thursday. So we will be planning a small and quiet wedding for them in the near future :-)

Congratulations to DoomHamster and fiance! Where is he from, that he needs a visa to get married?

Matt is from the US of A, so needs a Visa in order to get married and legally stay in this country as a resident for more than six months.
The normal "visit" Visa is only valid for six months before you have to leave the country.

If he was a member of the EEC nation countries (basically, most of Continental Europe)he would have freedom of travel, domicile, work and marriage within the EEC, without the need for all the hoops.
