Yes, She usually came here for 3 months every year since we met, but in this ocassion due to my health problems( 3 operations for cancer since september 2013, november and january) ,she had to come here in march 2013 for 3 months, september-3 months and january 3 months Now that I started with chemotherapy for 6 months, she probably will have to stay with me or go to see her family and come back again soon.
We'll like to know if she has to get a visa as a wife, family member according to the english law in her country (Panama) to enter without problems when it will be necessary to look after me or she has to apply for it here, what will be the procedure and its cost.
She doesn't intend to live here as she has a big family in Panama and
also she doesn't need any benefit from the government as she buy health insurance any time she comes to my country.
My thanks in advance for your answer
Just to be sure. will you answer my question in 5 -10 minutes or you need more information. I'll continue waiting. Thanks a lot
Hello Tom: I have 2 or 3 more questions to you:
1. I've been reading in the site of Border Agency about a EEA family permit which is a form of "entry clearance" (similar to a VISA) and it is for nationals of countries outside the european Economic area (EEA) who are family menbers of EEA nationals. Does it apply to her and give her a better clear entrance without customs problems
2. Do your organization deal with the procedure (the one finally we proceed with) and how much will be the quote (aproximately).
3. Is it possible according to the law that her visa can be obtain through the British Embassy in Panama as she is near to back to her country (march 20) to see her family but planning to come back to look after me due to my chemotherapy process?
4. In your experience how long does it take to get the visa and if she cans come in the next 3 months due to the problem to get the entrance in the custom as I explained to you before?
Thanks a lot Donald Merritt
PS That plan for one week free you are offering comes with the payment of 60 pounds I've submitted to you?
I'm very pleased for your answers Tom.My last question is if you can provide me the name of an organization to get a free or cheaper service from an immigration solicitor to process my documents?
In the P S I asked you if the payment I've made will give me one week free as your first plan established or do I have to apply for the plan and pay 61 pounds?
Your help will be most appreciated Tom.
Hi Tom. Thank you for your offer. Following your response, my wife expects to start the process to get the multi-entry visitor next time she comes here. She'll leave to her country next week), but after three visits in one year last year (march 30 to june 20), september 13 to december 11 and january 9 to march 19 ), which was the reason for the stop at the custom, when cans she come back to start counting the 6 months she's allowed to be here?
Thanks a lot donald merritt
Thanks Tom. I would like my wife (Ellie) to be here to look after me during my proposed 6 months of chemotherapy. Elle's trips since last year were to be "my nurse" in relation to the cancer surgeries I had. Is this grounds for extending the overall staying time? Of course once I am cured and/or no longer need such care we will get back to the normal allowed quotas. All the facts mentioned have been documented and can be verified by the Cancer specialists.
