    E.s. - Cohabitation Visa

    posted by  Lambert Flores in Belgium forum 

    You and your partner needs to decied if the two of you needs cohabitation or fiance visa. I'm under cohabation or samenwonen contract here in Belgium. I appliead last year around August and I got approved November then we both travel together to Belgium January after his December vacation in Philippines.

    Cohabitation is more for couples who don't want to tie the knot first and live together here in Belgium. It's on the embassy website that you and your partner at least met each other for 45 days and in a relationship for two years but one of my friend who I also knew here in justlanded (we're good friends now here in Antwerp) they got denied but they seek a lawyers help because they only know each pther for one year when they applied for cohabitation visa. They discovered that cohabitation visa requires at least one year in arelationship and visa was granted to her.

    In my case, we waited for two years because that's what we know and what's posted in the embassy website. I applied first for tourist/visit visa and got denied twice. So what he did is he's the one who visited me in Philippines for like 7 times in two years and we do some short trips together in Palawan, Thailand, Sg and Hongkong where every time we got the chance to make photos of us together we take that opportunity. We also spend some time together with my family and friends in Philippines and photos are required so we have proofs that we are together during the time of his vacations. Once you're decided tp which visa you're goung to lodge I can help you with all the things I've just to prove our relationship.

    If you want to know more your partner without marriage Cohabitation Visa is good for the two of you. It's a very tough visa application like all other visas. Every visa is unique and you have to really think about it before you apply for it. Don't grt the fiance visa if you don't want to marry him yet. I heard some not so good stories here already but relationship will success if you both love each other even without marriage.

    Hope that this help you decide which visa is good for you and your partner.
