Answer on Im from philippines. i have a boyfriend from cuneo italy... how he get me there as a fiancee.?
Your Fiance must go to his local Comune and request the official invitation form , fill it in , the comune will photocopy his identity card , sign and rubber stamp and date . This he will send to you . He can send money to buy you a return ticket to a Manilla travel Agency , who will book the flight , but only confirm and pay for it when you will have a visa .
You must apply for a Passport .
You must contact the Italian Embassy / Consul and ask for a visa application form ( Duplicate in case of mistakes ) and a list of all the documents required .
You will need proof of residence , details of employment , Salary , Details of your bank account , A letter from your Mayor or local government office ; to say that you are of good character , clean living , not a prositute .
They will want to know that you will definitely have to return to the Philippines , for reasons of your house , apartment , job , or family .
If you do not have plenty of money in your bank account , to cover the cost of your stay in Italy , as if you were staying at an hotel ; your fiance will need to send you the money . The Consulate will tell you how much is required , equal to about Euro3000 . Expensive ! You can send or take the money back to him , once you have documentation of your bank account showing it . I am English , but lived a number of years in Italy . I wanted to have my Thai fiancee to stay . We succeeded 2nd application ; but it can be a real time waster and frustrating . Also , if you are single OK , Divorced OK , Separated NO GO .
We are Happily Married now and living in Thailand .
I am sorry if this isn't too encouraging ; be sure to have all your documents in order . I wish you both success !!!
Another possibility is for your fiance to find you a job ; but that is not so easy if you don't speak Italian ; Philippinas are very well received in domestic , hotels , ski chalet where English can be useful .
