Schengen Visa for Philippina

Recommended Posts

I am inThailand on a retirement visa and I am living together with a Philippina who is staying in Thailand on a double entry tourist visa. We were planning a trip to Europe and went to the German Embassy to apply for a tourist visa for her. At the Embassy we were informed that she can not apply for a tourist visa to the Schengen States in Thailand because she is only a tourist here and needs to show residency in Thailand, otherwise she can only apply for a tourist visa to Europe in Manila. I have now following questions to the BMs:

Has anybody else ever dealt with this problem and if yes, how did you solve it?

Is it possible to change a tourist visa into a residence visa without leaving Thailand?

Is an Ed-visa equal to a residence visa and does it allow to apply for a tourist visa at the German Embassy?

All answers and advises are appreciated>

I think they are right. She will need to apply for the visa to Europe from her country of residence - in this case the Philippines. I know it sucks but them the rules.

Well, it sounds like the German embassy at BKK isn't going to issue her a visa. I'd think her applying for Thai permanent residency would be more of a hassle than just going back to PI and getting the Visa there. Your other option is to try different Schengen state embassies in BKK. Once she has a Schengen visa, all is well; it doesn't necessarily have to be issued by Germany. The way I understand it, you can enter ANY of the Schengen states on a Schengen visa and you'll be admitted. The hard part is convincing the issuing embassy that their country is the "primary destination" so they can issue the visa. I'd try contacting other countries' embassies that may have a more laid-back attitude and ask if they will issue a visa to a PI national and if so what documentation they will want. The worst thing they can say is no.

She should apply in her host country.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
