Hello, Im from Greece and i have been several times in the Philippines to see my g/f. We had already applied for a tourist visa 2 years ago but she was denied. I think 99.9% they reject the tourist visas. So we are planning this June to get married in her country and apply for a spouse visa to bring her in greece. We learned though that it might take 2-3 years the spouse visa and we better apply for a fiance, so as when she is in greece to get married.
Is it true? Spouse visa takes so much longer than a fiance visa? It is supposed to be a "stronger" document if im not mistaken.
1) Which visa do you suggest me to go for?
2) What papers are needed for a fiance visa?
