Age difference

There is a large age difference between me and my Gambian girlfriend. I am 73 and she is only 22.

Is this likely to be a stumbling block in us applying for a visitor visa for her to visit me here in England. 4 months would be requested.

As I read this from the advice notes, your age will not come up when she first goes along with her Gambia passport.

Careful to jump to conclusions.. Unless you have been in Muslim dominant West Africa society you really do not know the situation. A girlfriend, might easily be a family friend, a younger business partner looking for a Euro visit even a life break into something seen as better. Maybe even a carer and that is common enough. As far as I know UK FCO staff are not bigots and do not moralize.
