    Remember you are looking there is no rush and be choosy , yes it's nice to have good looks but it's not everything.

She and the daughter are allowed to work which will help to pay our expenses.Ireland is expensive to live ,can't believe food prices here.
    I've got my fingers crossed for you mate.

    Might be a bit more difficult for me, as I become an OAP this coming September.

    I only wish I'd taken up Irish citizenship years ago (through my Irish maternal Grandmother). I don't think it can be done now.

    Because Ireland is a full EU member ... fully recognising freedom of movement and right to family life rules... unlike our poxy government which treats its own citizens worse than foreigners.

    Yes, I believe it's very much easier to do visas if you're Irish.

    Yup looks like an option but to do SS you need to keep UK citizens ship go to Ireland then back to UK you only need irish residence card article 10 to go back to UK with your misus and baby

    Is the SS route just to bypass the £18,600 rule or are there other benefits too?

    Yes you bypass the 18600 requirement the benefit is that you get to live together while your waiting,and your lady is allowed to work straight away which helps the finances

    Just a load of documents to collect Arthur (original birth, marriage, death certs, etc)... plus a few hundred quid fees.

    Good start though... at least the Irish online site has traced and recognised my grandmother's birth details, so I can order a birth certificate.

    I'll get on to it after I'm back from the Phils next month.

    Ah, ok.

    You've still got to pay to live in Ireland though.


    I'm still confused by all this SS stuff, to be honest .

    Thing is, I have a council tenancy of one of those rocking horse poo solid gold properties - an OAP bungalow, and a beautiful one at that.

    I'm trying to hang on to it at all costs.

    Hmm ... it's possible I may be mistaken ... ... but it occurs to me there's a fair chance the income rule might well be relaxed - to some extent at least - for older sponsors who are retired. Worth looking into, I'd say.

    I think one would need to be on DLA Arthur, which I'm certainly not, and (hopefully) not likely to be.

    2 benefits from what I know is that your spouse does not have to pass English test and she can work straight away after entering UK coz she will have the host country residence card

    There was no financial requirement for me being on a State Pension, I think that still applies but not sure

    The required income was £13,700 when we applied for Maritess Visa first week in May 2012, at that time my Pension total was approx £10,500 per annum and I also had £7000 savings. I think the requirement increased to £18,600 in October 2012 not 100% sure though, I'm sure someone on here will know Graham. I do remember the increase wasn't too long after we applied, hope this information has been of help to you

    Councils used to allow you to rent a room out Graham..Its basically a way to rent the whole house out for 6 months or so..At least you wont have to pay rent X2..
    I take it you have scrapped the live in P.I plan?? Didnt you just buy some land?

    I know that this thread has probably died a death but I thought I would weigh in with a dating site recommendation in case anyone is reading this in the future...

    Try a site called "Tagged". I met my fiancé on there. I heard of it through one of my tenants and joined in the off chance I could meet somebody local. I had no expectations but wanted to try. I didn't know that it is mainly popular with women in the Philippines and Thailand and I was getting loads of messages from people in those countries (mostly Philippines). I didn't particularly want to get involved with a girl from so far away so I quit the site about 2 weeks after joining. Luckily I gave my Skype ID to a girl I had enjoyed talking to and we started a relationship soon afterwards and are now engaged. If you are wanting to meet some gorgeous Filipina's then I would suggest checking it out. Be warned though that its not EXCLUSIVELY a dating site, as some people do use it as social networking and playing games but I would say 90% on there were for dating. However this means that most on there are genuine people and during my time I never came across any scammers or anything. Best of all, it's FREE!
