Uk visa for filipinos – tourist, marriage, and residency v gashi 2013

##########

The simple answer is YES! Filipinos still need to apply for a visa if you want to visit the UK whether it’s for marriage, long-term residency or a short-term tourist visit. I am just making this clear because while we were enjoying Switzerland last month (August), some ‘attention – seekers satirical website’ created a FAKE news entitled, ‘Filipinos No Longer Need Visa To Enter The United Kingdom‘.

You need to have valid reasons why there is a need to have a long – term visit visa to the UK. electricity and magnetism worksheets The visa can be valid for 2, 5 or 10 years and you can stay in the UK for a maximum of 6 months every time you visit. It is important to know that for travelers under 18 years old, the long- term visit visa will only be valid for up to 6 months after you turn 18. Fees

Do you want to get married or register a civil partnership in the UK? If yes, the visa you need to apply for is the Marriage Visitor Visa provided that you are not going to stay or settle in the UK for a long period of time after getting married. (This is the visa that I have when we decided to finally get married in the UK last July 12, 2016.) When can you apply?

Hi Chris! I hope my situation would help you in getting your Fiance at least a Type C (Visitor Visa) so that she can visit you for 6 months in UK. I have a british boyfriend who invited me to Visit him and his family in Scotland. The embassy would just wanted to make sure that your Fiancee has a strong ties in the Philippines so that she has a reason go to back here before issuing a Visa. In my case I have submitted my Mom and Dad’s birth Certificate as a proof that they are here in the Philippines and I need to go back because of them, I also submitted a Land Titles under my name to show the Embassy that I owned something in the Philippines, I also submitted ny NBI clearance to show that I don’t have any criminal record, my Certificate of Employment, Bank Certificate, proff of my address, In your case you need to submit an invitation letter, bank statement for 3 months, Sponsorhip declaration form with undertaking which can be downloaded through UK gov website, any document that would show where you live, Coucil Tax, copy of British passport, your pay slip, HM Revenue and CUstoms. I also printed a 3 pages of our picture showing that we have indeed met and our relationship is genuine. I only took 6 days for the Embassy to conclude a decision and luckily I was granted a 6 months visa Type C. and now I am just waating for my flight this December 16. I am only worried about the Immigration Officer here in the Philippines because”Offloading” is a thin in the Philippines Airport which means that sometimes a passanger will deffer them from boarding the plane for some reason.

thank you for your reply ..I tried to get her a visitors visa in manila but it was rejected ,,, she lives in Trento so she has no bank statement and she has no children .. she has worked abroad for 6 years and she has education certificate also .. gas nozzle prank I showed them my bank statement and my disability papers but they turned her down ,, she has never been in any trouble with police or anyone so it was a shock it was turned down .. .I was there in oct and plan to go back in april or may .. we have been in communication for 14 months now and I also send her 120.00 pound a month to support her .. I looked on website here and lots of companies have offered there service to me as long as I pay .. it varies between 300 and 2,500 pound to assist me .. im so confused as there seems to be so many types of visas … if it takes me to get her here, I will marry her in philli in may .. can I ask you if I go in may do you think making an appointment in embassy in manila would be better so I can show them proof of pics etc and that my fiancé would return when it runs out … thank you for your help ..

Hi Chris! I don’t think making an appointment to the Embassy would help the application since Visa is being process through a Visa Application Center (VAC) and that is VFS ( https://www.vfsglobal.co.uk/philippines/) . That is the only acredited application center of UK. The document is handed to them and will they will forward it to the Embassy, then once the British Embassy made the decision of a certain application then the passport would be send back to VAC with the result and VAC will shipped it to the applicant or the applicant can claim it to the VAC which over you guys prefer, So you dont actually go to Embassy itself for the Visa Application. As for me I have submitted the photos of me and my boyfriend being together so support my claim that we are indeed in a relationship, since you send a money to her she could also include a photo of the receipt, it will add as a supporting document. Coming over to the Philippines and marrying her would help in applying a Visa. Once married, it would be best if she could submit a Marriage Certificate. Thier is actually no limit as what documents that needs to the submitted when you apply, as long as it will support your claim. electricity lesson plans year 6 I actually did not seek any assistance to any agencies about with processing a Visa. I had to do the research by myself. time cosumig but it was worth it.

thank you for all your help … like I said when I went out to see my fiancé in oct we applied for visa but they turned her down saying she has no bank account which is true but they mentioned Pakistan !! I do not know why they said Pakistan … also they said she never been abroad but she worked in Kuwait for 7 years .. I have spoke to the people who helped me with the visa and they assure me that they put in all the right information .. so they told me we will try with new visa .. they said to start we will apply for a settlement visa … this will mean I will be in the uk while my fiancé try to sort it out ,,, its really upsetting for me that its so much trouble for my fiancée who has no kids , is a Christian and has no criminal record that its so hard to get her here to visit me … I have been sending her £120. pound for the last 14 months since she finished her work to support her … I will show them photos etc showing us together in manila and Trento … thank you so much for trying to help me ,, may god be with you and I hope you find all the happiness you deserve …

Hi Kach! Your blog helps me a lot especially when I was processing my UK Visitor Visa (Type C) Visa. This blog actually my basis in gathering documents. I have applied by Visitor Visa in VAC last November 2 and on November 10 after 5 working days I recieved an email and text message from Visa Application Center (VAC) that the Embassy have made a decision on my appplication and next day (Saturday) I received my passport through 2GO with a Visa Sticker on it with Multiple entries. Never been happier in life lol. I am man with a Scotish boyfriend who will be funding me everything for this trip. Now that I have a visa another delemma that I am facing again. The Philippines Immigration officer at the Terminal 3 Airport. I will be flying to UK this December 16 and can’t sleep thinking about the “Offloading” that our IO do. electricity 4th grade worksheet I was under in the impression that I am free on flying since I already have a visa. power generation definition My boyfriend will send me a 200+ thousand of money so that I can support my travel because he is obliged to do so since that what we said in the visa application that he will be paying for my trip. My question is that, what should I do If will be inreviewed with the IO and how usually it is being done. How likely am I to be offloaded? I have just resigned today December 4 since I will be in UK for 5 months. I have all the payslip on my 3 year Job and can present a ITR. I also photocopied all the documents that I have submitted to the embassy when I applied for a visa. What documents that IO you think will be asking from me. I am so nervous and not at ease thinking about that.
