Acquiring UK VISA: Appointment Day!

As I’ve said, If you done completing your online application, have it printed out and already got your appointment date for the submission of your application package and for collecting Biometric and next step was to present yourself at the VFS ECO Plaza Makati Manila. Be sure that you’re 15 minutes early upon your appointment time as they’re allowing applicant to enter the building 15 minutes early.

VFS Manila ADDRESS:

VFS Manila Visa Application Centre
Mezzanine Floor, Unit M01 Ecoplaza Building
2305 Chino Roces Ave. Extension
Makati City 1231
Manila

United Kingdom Visa center was located at the second floor and as you goes up you may see a guard there asking for your appointment letter to present hence dont forget to printed out your appointment letter or less they cant allow you at all to enter the building.

Tips:

Don’t bring bag inside, actually you can but you’ll have to deposit it over to the locker beside to the guard area and it has a fee ( 75 PHP) which is not reasonable at all because you’ll probably staying at the building for like 10 minutes, in my case, so paying for the locker is not really a good idea. Better to have a companion who will wait you outside who can carry your belongings for awhile.

Also, make sure that you have your checklist ready as well that you can download beforehand over this link: https://www.vfsglobal.co.uk/philippines/Document-checklist.html. Because the representative will ask it over but if you forgot to brings yours, dont fret! as they have a spare checklist to give out for you to fill it up. 🙂

VFS Fees?

This is only optional though: if you opt to have your passport delivered at your home address there was a corresponding fee for that and it’s : PHP 525.00 and if you want an SMS update you can also get that by paying PHP158 which I dont recommend at all. Why? because they just texted me once stating that my application was being forwarded to the UK Embassy and after than I haven’t received any from the Text. haha! But they do email you as well regarding on the updates and status hence you’ll be not needing the SMS for that matter.

What to wear inside VFS?

Please dont overdress! VFS is not a embassy they’re just collecting our applications hence you can wear sort of “casual” wearing while lodging your application. Actually me, am just wore my obey sweat shorts and a basic plain tees when the time I lodged my application and still I can able to enter haha just dont wear tank top/sando and slipper, I guess.
