Olympic Athletes not Allowed to Marry while in Britain for Games
Thu 29-03-2012

Athletes, coaches, and officials that are participating in the Olympics held in Britain, are banned from marrying during their visit.

Why? Because of Home Office concerns that they will exploit the Olympic Games to try and get residency and that the Olympics will be a target for illegal immigrants and terrorists to get into Britain.

About 20.000 people from outside Europe will be given 6-months visas, that also bann them from getting married or applying for visas to study in Britain.
