One very important lesson we’ve learned from helping out clients/applicants all these years is the importance of making sure we have in our possession a complete knowledge of all the facts pertinent to the application before lodging it at the local visa application centre.
We must possess all the details and facts surrounding the lives of both the applicant and the sponsor like the story of their relationship, how they met, how he or she proposed, their future plans.
In short… the overall personal details and a comprehensive understanding of the whole picture -- their love story.
But the success of an application does not only depend on the genuineness and authenticity of the relationship between the applicant and the sponsor/partner. The financial standing of the sponsor and their future accommodation in the UK are equally very essential factors in the attainment of a positive outcome.
Nothing beats a deep understanding of the individual circumstances of the applicant and the sponsor, and we discuss this subject matter with them even before they become our client and prior to the contract signing.
During the preliminary stage of the application process, we conduct a comprehensive interview with the applicant (and with the sponsor as much as possible). This initial meeting is the most critical stage as it is at this moment that we can have a better feel of whether the applicant is truly qualified, a little bit qualified or not eligible at all. Whatever the conclusion of the interview may be, we make it a point to explain the situation to both the applicant and the sponsor.
Not only will this information aid them in deciding whether they want to continue and acquire our help, all information gathered from this interview will likewise greatly aid the firm when formulating the checklist of supporting documents and accomplishing the online application.
Before covid-19 hit the world, we discouraged meeting prospective clients online as we believed that personally meeting and communicating with the client to discuss the details of the application was the best and only manner of obtaining all information relevant to the application.
But when the lockdown went full blast, the entire human race shifted to the internet for safe and fast communication and we were no exception. The firm’s only recourse was to go with the flow and adapt to the changing times and evolve with the rest of the world.
Now almost half our contracts are agreed upon, perfected and signed online. Meetings have mostly been conducted by WHATSAPP, VIBER and MESSENGER. We realized that meetings and consultations over the internet can be as productive and constructive as those carried out face to face.
Although based on our experience, onsite and personal meetings are still the main choice of clients when it comes to initially talking with our knowledgeable staff. However, for those in the province, prospective clients now tend to talk to us online than book a flight to Manila and meet us at the office for their initial consultation or meeting.
