It is most easy for a European citizen that is married to a non EEU citizen to bring his or her spouse to the UK than for a UK citizen to bring into UK his or her spouse. this is clearly due to the European law on free movements for EU citizens and their families.

Base on these knowledge, one can start to think differently even as BREXIT approaches.

Gambia Scam???
Hi I recently joined an online gay dating site planet romeo and a man from Gambia approach me we start chatting and in quite a short space of time he declared his love and telling me how loyal he will be to me and wants to be together forever...all seems too good to be true...

I want to know is this quite a common thing that happens in Gambia? Is it all just a scam or is it all part of a sex trade industry?

How do I protect myself from being a victim to this?

Thanks, James.

Gambian - British Relationship
I have been in a serious relationship with my Gambian boyfriend for 2 years, known him for 9-10 years. What are the rules regarding him coming to the UK? How much is visa applications?
He has a good job and is from a wealthy Gambian family, I would be looking to eventually marry and have a family. How do I legally go about this?
