My Russian lady has just sent me a text message to tell me that the Ukrainian embassy have told her that it is possible for an Englishman and a Russian lady to marry in Kiev , so for any people having problems to get a visa to Russia this could be a great option...I will keep you all posted on what happens and what we need to do to get through this....

Hello folks!
This may be a bit off course from this thread, but since you guys are obviously further along the red tape line I figured I'd ask. What is the advantage of getting married in the Ukraine vs. having her come here to get married at home in the US?? She's already been here on a tourist Visa before, and the idea would ultimately moving here anyways.
We are currently deciding which is better, so Id like to know the reasons for you guys getting married over there instead of at home.

Are you in the US ? if so you need to ask on another thread this is about the UK.

If in the UK, one benefit is you have one set of fees less, although in the whole scheme of things its only going to save you best part of a grand,  so you have to weigh up if that is a major consideration, but remember the wedding is usually for the lady anyway, no doubt she would want her family to be present, could she have that if you got married at home?
