First of all please let me explain my situation: I am a German passport holder living in the UK for some 4 years now.
Here in London I met my Mexican girlfriend who is working here as an Aupair until October. Then she goes back to Mexico,but we are currently looking for options to get a visa so we can stay together permanently.
Unfortunately the UK makes it very hard to get a visa for someone who isn't an engineer or doctor, so I think it will be close to impossible to stay here, although I really would love to continue living in London.
Germany is not really an option for me, I just don't want to go back after all these years.
For me being self employed as a graphic designer it is not an issue to relocate as I can work virtually anywhere with an Internet connection. However I would prefer to stay in the UK.
Any ideas what the best way is for her to get a visa?
