The Manila Embassy quotes 6 months for the processing of fiancee (prospective marriage) visa applications. Most of ours are taking around 4 months. Our last one (granted yesterday) was granted in only 3 months. Not bad! I must say they were model clients, and followed all our instructions to the letter. They also provided lots of clear and readily-understandable information as per our checklists. The easier it is to follow and understand an application, the less delays and the quicker it takes to get a good result. Congratulations to Sean and Irene!
