    I'm....sorry...we're...gosh, mustn't upset madam...haha...in the process of applying for our settlement visa.
    I reckon it's going to cost about £6k from start to finish.
    That is including a week in Manila for both of us. I figured I would rather take my documents as it gives me an excuse to see my Mrs.
    My other half lives in Mindanao and the travelling and hotel bills really add up.

    Anyone else have an idea of their total cost?

    Still...having her home will be worth every penny.

    How much do people spend on cars, houses, hobbies, holidays abroad ?
    How much a month is a loan for a few grand these days (maybe only three, to get things moving) at current low interest rates.

    Well worth it to have a loved one with us for the rest of our lives, I'd have thought.

    You can use the link below to check on the visa costs, note that you do not have to pay the NHS surcharge until you are married in the UK and applying for the first FLR(M).

    $1625 for the Fiancee visa at todays prices :)

    Remember you can pay for the premium service if you wish for a few hundred quid more, 10 day decision.
