It does seem really odd, doesn't it? I mean, who is worried about Singaporeans trying to live in another country illegally? The Anglo-nanny-state is really paranoid about everything, even when it makes no sense. And yet the U.K. allows in tons of immigrants from the Middle East, which is slowly displacing its native population. But no, they have to worry about Singaporeans. I guess because they're no threat. Go after easy prey and ignore the difficult is the motto of government.Jester wrote:This sounds like getting someone in from China, not from SINGAPORE.Fonduman wrote:
We didn't mention any intention to get married, or that we wanted to extend her stay. Just that she was coming to stay with me for a few months, to visit me as a friend she met online. It wasn't a lie, since anything in addition to that would be decided later, rather than it was set in stone already.
I provided a sponsor letter that I would cover her costs. I gave details of my accommodation, some payslips to show I can afford it, etc.
Apparently in her refusal statement, they said she had no stated reason to be here, and had no money, and that 3 months was suspicious, so they thought she was trying to move here and get a job illegally.
Perhaps they can arbitrarily choose to believe that visiting someone online is an invalid reason
Apparently then, "visa-free" means NOTHING.

HEEEY! I know just been lurking around hehe, my world has turn upside down in the last year , i might even turn in a HA girl or stay in my town
If God is watching us, the least we can do is be entertaining.
I am American guy lived in Ukraine for 4 years, Moscow for 1 year. I met and married a beautiful Ukrainian woman. Their man is #1, the most important thing in the world to them and they care for you in that way. I must get up at 5 am. My wife gets up at 4:30, cooks me breakfast, makes me a lunch (no store bought food could be as good as what she makes) then comes and gently wakes me with kisses and "good words". ..
They always look great! For one thing, there is a high percentage of beautiful women in Russia and Ukraine, it is incredible. But also they NEVER go out of the house unless they look beautiful and they always look beautiful for their man. My wife wants me to say how I like her hair, her clothes, her make-up. She wants to look good for me and it makes her feel good. Don't even think you can go through life without complimenting your woman and telling her how wonderful and beautiful she is many times a day. And ONLY your wife is "beautiful" this is a very powerful word and means "most beautiful of all".
They generally don't want to work outsode the house, even thought they are usually highly educated (my wife has a masters degree and speaks four languages) and they are NOT lazy. Their DREAM in life is to have a husband, children and cozy home to care for, even if it is a tiny 2 room "flat". They are not demanding. My wife has 8 pairs of shoes and thinks it is "excessive" she has asked if now I will "run away" because she has "so many" shoes. ) She grew up with a family of four in a flat the size of our living room now. You think she is happy? She thinks our small (by American standards) house is about all she can care for properly.
They ENJOY, crave, to look like and feel like women. They are very feminine. ALL of her night wear is attractive or sexy. We never spend a night apart. They want their man to look good, it is a reflection on them if you don't. She cares for my clothes, irons my jeans (!!!!) and checks me out before we go somewhere. If I don't look good, she doesn't look good.
Sexually, ah yes, you knew I would get to that. In general, they never refuse their man, EVER. It is the MAN's resposibility to be, well, responsible. I would never initiate ( I never "ask") sex when she is feeling ill. She would not refuse me, I promise, but she would think I am abusive and not considering her. As I said, this is NOT a one way street. They receive TRUE pleasure from giving pleasure to their man. She gives herself to me completely and expects to be pleased the same way.
They NEVER argue. They expect their man to consider their opinion and listen to them. BUT it is the man's job to make the decisions. If I do NOT make decisions and DO the things I need to, she will have no use for me. I MUST do what a man should do. It is my job to relieve her of responsibilities, not boss her around. If you think for one second a man can boss around a Ukrainian woman...wow, have you got another thing coming! She EXPECTS to have everything she "needs" and things she "wants" if it is possible. She expects me to do anything I CAN do for her and the family and not complain, just like she does.
I think a Urkainian woman would rather cut off her arms and legs than cheat on a good man. They just WILL NOT! They won't do it. As fantastically beautiful as she is, as outgoing and friendly as she is, I am absolutely secure. Not only would she not cheat, she won't even do anything to make me suspicious. Oh...she demands the same from me….
Congrat dude!! Really happy for you.
Immigration can be a huge pain. A girl from South America I was semi-dating came to visit me a few times in the US years ago, and her getting thru immigration always stressed me out, especially since her English was bad. Fortunately, she had a cousin in the US, so she had a legit "family visit" excuse, and always set up the trip for two weeks (we'd change the return ticket for a longer time when she arrived.) Even though she never had any issues, eventually I ended up going down there to visit her.
Little money + visiting an "online friend" is guaranteed to raise eyebrows from immigration.
