Why did you choose Belfast though over London?

I’m not sure why you’re changing it to Belfast, you’re now paying way over the odds for this process.

Processing times won’t differ at all between Belfast and London. The waivers request still goes back to the US for processing.

Shelly it’s my opinion that you’ve made a huge mistake going for a Visa at this stage. However it is what it is, I would prepare your guests for the worse, or simply get married elsewhere.

I absolutely understand your reasons, Shelly, but please don't feel you have to justify or explain your decisions to anyone on here. You most certainly don't. :-)

The chances of you being caught at the border aren’t slim, it’s practically non-existent. However, the chances of you being put forward for a waiver when you got a caution barely a month ago are extremely slim. I was told by an immigration lawyer during a consultation that 4/5 years is usually the sweet spot for getting a waiver depending on the crime. However - I’m happy to be proved wrong and you get it so you can enjoy your special day.
