13 a Visa - Requirement for Existing Visa...

Recommended Posts

JohnSurrey

I am thinking I'll apply for a 13A visa... I've been here a number of years on a tourist visa. 

The last time I was going to do this I'd left it too late - as I remember it they said I needed to have more than 3 months left on my tourist visa to be able to apply.

Can someone confirm that or tell me what the exact rule is ?

 

Thank

Can’t answer, but have a suggestion where to get an answer from the BI.  They have a Facebook page and do respond to queries.  If the first response does not seem clear, persist and they will give you a POC for clarification.  I have used this process for unrelated queries.  As well, I think other LinC members have contacted them this way.  
 

The Tacloban office is also helpful on the phone, but I haven’t called them in a long while.  
 

The three months statement may have had to do with the practicability of getting the process completed while on a tourist visa.  I think from posts in LinC it is not uncommon for the price to go on for months while the paperwork is processed and such.

my brit friend here did his in under 21 days back when that was the visa time and this was near 12 years ago. I would like to think things would be smoother now and with 30 days plenty built in unless there are issues with the application ... we are a nation of form and substance
