I will be applying for 13a (probationary) in Manila while on Balikbayan visa in Philippines. 1) Do I need to bring divorce certificate from previous marriage? Checklist doesn't mention it, but it says any foreign document need to be validated by PHL embassy in UK. I am thinking if divorce certificate not needed, then it will save trio to PHL embassy in London. 2) For 'Character References', can I mention names of my wife's mother and sister, who will live in same house as me. Do they accept relatives as character references? 3) Do I need to show any bank statement from UK? It's not mentioned in checklist 4) Do I need photos? It's not mentioned in checklist. Is there any photo booth inside BI Manila? 5) Do BI send anything by post to Philippines address?
