Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.
1. You should go ahead and submit the documents as given the time lapse before you get the visa for your fiancee, there will have been a positive resolution of the travel arrangements so that she can travel from the Philippines. Otherwise, your application for her, risks falling foul of the expiry of documents, such as the tuberculosis certificate. So, you are better off go ahead and apply. I would also advise her to vaccinate herself in the Philippines because, shortly, all people who have been vaccinated, will be allowed to travel. So, she should put herself into the category of persons who can travel by vaccinating herself.
2. If you require any clarification of issues raised in the answer, I am happy to help further. Also, if there are any other queries you have in relation to the question, I am happy to assist in their resolution.
3. Yes, essentially, once your fiancee has the visa, she can choose when to activate it. The visa only begins when she enters the UK and due to Covid, there is time allowed before the exercise of the visa owing to the travel arrangements. So, you have nothing to lose by going ahead and getting the visa for her.
4. You will need to submit the application online yourself, as I don´t know of any centre, except for express applications where the applicant would be present where you can present the documents. Secondly, there i s no such thing as doing biometrics and showing her physical passport at the time of issue of the visa or the acceptance of the visa. This will have to be done in the course of the application in her country, pandemic or no pandemic.
5. You are welcome! Glad to be of assistance. Have a good day.
6. I don´t know the answer to your query as i have never seen it in practice. Normally, the biometric is done during the period of the certificate and you should aim for this to occur.
