Though their lifelong dream of settling in Britainia has finally become a reality, still, once they are in the Land of the Rose, the fact remains that they are still Filipinas and just like any other OFW successfully employed and established abroad, the fact remains that after years or months or even just weeks of stay in the UK, most of them grieve deep inside longing for the touch and feel of their parents, kinsfolks and close friends at home.
One solution would be to go for a vacation and revisit their homeland so they can hug their loved ones once more. Thus, once in a while they get the chance to go home and embrace their parents and siblings. This, however, is just a short-lived solution because when they return to the UK and after a prolonged absence from their nearest and dearest, the longing creeps back in.
It’s not that Brinays hate their new life in the UK. Not at all! Of course they love their newfound life with their new and growing family and being settled in Great Britain. They are very happy in the UK, undeniably! They will never regret being there and will never yearn to revert to their former life in Las Islas Filipinas.
It’s just that they long for their parents, their close relatives. The point is they miss their family so much!
ECO-Friendly suggests the best solution would be to bring the Brinay’s family in the UK for a grand vacation. This way their family from the Philippines will have a most memorable vacation and in turn Brinays and Brinoys can spend quality time with their Pinoy families for an unforgettable and splendid holiday.
And this was exactly what Craig and Mina did!
Mina initially filed for a UK Fiancée Visa with the help of ECO Immigration Consultancy in order to celebrate her marriage with boyfriend Craig and eventually settle in the UK. Long story short, the application was approved and she flew to the UK to start the wedding preparations.
Before the wedding, however, the couple decided to bring in Mina’s parents for the wedding. Another reason was that Mina truly missed her parents when she arrived in the UK and also so that Craig’s parents could finally meet Mina’s.
They then filed for a UK Visit Visa for the mother and father and again we guided Mina’s parents’ application process so that they can attend the wedding which was scheduled merely weeks ahead.
The UK Visit Visa application was approved and when the parents arrived, they had a grand time celebrating the nuptials.
Mina admits she initially missed her parents when she first arrived in the UK, but their personal appearance for her wedding slowly eased her yearning for them, and after seeing them and spending time with them before, during and after the marriage, she now feels better knowing that if and when they want to see each other again personally, her mom and pop can visit her anytime.
She started to realize that it was not that hard for her parents to visit her anytime in person.
So for Brinays wanting to apply for their family’s UK Visit Visa application, please do not hesitate to contact us. Just click the ECO-Friendly contact box below to talk to a qualified and knowledgeable immigration consultant.
On another happy note: Mina’s Further Leave to Remain (FLR-M) has just been approved so this means, she will be considered a UK resident for another 2.5 years on her way to eventually becoming a British citizen. Congratulations Mina!
