異國婚姻 vs 簽證

on Jul 07 in 英台聯姻須知 tagged by

Emily@UK - 結婚相關簽證!

異國聯姻真的是一件麻煩事,尤其當台灣護照不太好用的時候.

當初要來英國結婚之前,必須申請「未婚妻簽證」(Fiancee Visa).
為了這一張薄薄的貼紙在護照上,說明我可以在英國境內待半年,且期間之內必須與某某某完婚,
我們雙方都要準備一堆文件,證明雙方都是單身,認識對方很久,不是假結婚之類的,還要經過面試,更要價台幣16000元.
這一點,就算我拿的是美國護照都一樣,也就算了,只好付了.


結了婚,想去度個蜜月.
拿台灣護照可以不用簽證的國家們,小到一般人聽都沒聽過,更別提會想去那裡度蜜月了.
也就是說,想去那些我們聽過的大國家,我都得提前2-4個星期,拿著我的護照,起個一早,搭火車去倫敦,找人家的領事館,排隊申請簽證,當然,又要繳一筆錢.
看這國家的熱門程度,必須趕在凌晨5點,抵達人家的領事館開始排隊都是可能的.

蜜月回來,生活回歸秩序,要開始找工作了.
「未婚妻簽證」可不准我在英國工作的,我必須在結婚後再申請「婚姻簽證」(Marriage Visa),才能合法的賺錢及納稅.
挖哩咧,連我想要納稅給你政府,都得要再繳一筆至少350英鎊申請「婚姻簽證」,相當於台幣21000元!
護照還要繳給人家 4 至 14 個星期,他們才會辦好寄回來給我 – 你們有沒有聽過一種東西叫做「效率」阿!?
一張薄薄的紙在我的護照上准我在英國境內待2年,准我工作,又要花上 14 個星期搞定!
我的 case 算很單純的,沒有犯罪紀錄,沒有結過婚,沒有小孩,基本上啥都沒有.
重點就是,他們要查證以上所說屬實,所以要花 4 至 14 個星期.

今年開始,IND 提供事先預約的服務,醬我們就不用早上5點去排隊,而且他們盡量在當天辦好,但要多付 150 英鎊,總價台幣 3 萬.
因為我們下個月要去美國玩,所以我們趕著要拿回來我的護照,好拿去辦美國與加拿大簽證.
(又是簽證...反正就是只要我動一下都要簽證啦!)
所以我們只好把錢給砸下去,希望他們當天辦好我的「婚姻簽證」,才不會延誤到我們去美國的行程.

去了以後才發現,他們一天的業務量還真的是很大耶!
有人是夫妻同行,有的還攜家帶眷,3個樓層都擠爆了人,號碼排到300多號.
我預約的時間是下午2.30,這是我打電話過去,可以預約的最早時間了.
必須2點就到,經過一連串的安全檢查,好像要上飛機那樣,還是要排隊! – 那預約到底是啥作用的?!
他們的確會確定,我在預約的時間左右拿到「號碼牌」,只是等一下叫號的時候,可沒有照著號碼順序叫 – 那號碼牌又到底是啥功能?!

大樓在 4 點以後就不准進入,於是如果我想當天拿回護照,我哪裡都去不了,連想去買本書回來看消磨時間的機會都沒有.
一直到快 6 點了才叫到我的號碼,7 點才拿回護照,從2點到7點,我整整乾坐在那裡等了 5 個小時.

大樓裡嚴格禁止使用手機,也就是說,想玩個電動消磨時間也不行.
我想說寄個簡訊給 Stevie,跟他解釋一下我必須把手機關機的情況然後再關機,
可是不幸,被保全人員逮到我在用手機,硬生生地被教訓了一頓. >_<~~ 大樓裡也禁止使用相機,也就是說,像我們這種無聊就把像機拿出來拍拍的 blogger,在這裡連這點興趣也沒能發揮了. 於是,我發現當人窮極無聊的時候,就會開始做蠢事... 我開始玩頭髮,學黑人綁綁辮子啦,搖頭晃腦,抖抖腳,甩甩頭,扭扭脖子, 把兩邊的頭髮在鼻子下面打結,把自己搞的好像日本小偷一樣... 經過這次,我覺的有必要把經歷及感想寫下來,以利後輩,所有要嫁娶來英國的同胞們... 建議: 1. 預約早上9-10點左右的,大樓對面就是購物商場,4點以前你還可以去逛逛,不用在大樓裡枯等. 2. 帶幾本書刊雜誌或電動,確定扣除逛街的時間,還夠撐幾個小時. 3. 準備飲料點心,等上5個小時總會需要喝點水的,大樓裡的咖啡攤3點關門. 4. 手機一定要關機,轉成靜音還是會被罵的. 5. 若一定要打簡訊,去廁所,用沖馬桶的聲音蓋過你啟動手機的聲音. 如圖所示,切記,一定要在現有簽證到期之前申請下一個,不然就等著被請出境了. 就算拿的是美國護照,想在英國結婚或居留,都必須經過同樣的手續喔...知道這一點心裡多少平衡一點,呵!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  • A person necessarily lend a hand to make critically posts
    I would state. That is the first time I frequented your web page and
    so far? I amazed with the research you made to make this particular post incredible.

    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they
    just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without
    having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
