It all started nine years ago when our office was still located within a residential area along P. Tuazon Blvd. in Cubao, Quezon City. Since this humble beginning, we have gone through so many transformations and changes, encountered all types of clients and filed so many applications for different types of UK visas, passports and appeals to Tribunals.
We can therefore say, we have almost seen it all. Emphasis on the word “almost” since nobody can really say they have seen it all!
In the course of our operation, probably one of the most important lessons that we have learned in the filing for a UK Spouse Visa, UK Fiancé/Fiancée Visa or any other UK Settlement Visa as well as the UK Visit Visas and British passports here in the Philippines is that there is nothing more essential than an application equipped with a complete set of supporting documents to fully reinforce each and every declaration in the application.
Many times, during our initial evaluation and interview of prospective clients, they almost always assert the completeness of their documents.
“We are already in possession of the complete set of documents,” or “...kumpleto na po ang mga papel namin!” were the usual retorts when asked on the sufficiency of documents, only for ECO-Friendly to determine later that they still have a good deal of documents to gather before we can truly declare the sufficiency of their papers and before they can pass the strict investigation of the Entry Clearance Officers (ECO).
There were also numerous instances when past clients who consulted us initially, and later decided to file the application on their own without our assistance, come back to us, almost in tears because their shot at filing the UK spouse visa on their own did not receive a positive result and the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) did not think they attached the sufficient amount of documents to prove that the applicant is truly qualified for the application being applied for.
So many applicants who were previously refused would come to us and when we review the reason for the failure and investigate the documents they attached with their application, we realize that they could have easily passed the scrutinous eyes of the ECO had they only attached the correct and applicable documents to prove their qualification.
