That is the question.
After recently posting about the prospect of volunteering for the nearest animal rescue shelter, it’s come to my attention that whilst here on a Fiance Visa, I’m not allowed to work OR volunteer. Our solicitor (read: lawyer) had mentioned early on in this process that it may be an issue but you know lawyer’s, nothing is ever black and white. Well the more I read online through multiple sources, the more I see that really it is black and white, there’s to be NO volunteering of any kind.
That’s fine, because soon we’ll be married and I’ll be able to apply for the spousal visa and after that is approved (positive thinking), I’ll be allowed to work and volunteer, all at the same time if I want.
I’m just happy and relieved that something was said and that I did a bit more research on this whole volunteer thing before actually going through with it. I definitely do not want to jeopardize my status on this Fiance Visa or our life we are building here together. I’m even happier that there’s only a handful of weeks left before I can spread my wings a bit, put myself out there, meet new people, and contribute to society. Before I go stir crazy.
