Witness required for extension?


Recommended Posts

I am due to go next week to extend my visa (non o) by 12 months based on marriage.

Having e-mailed my local immigration office to confirm what documents are required, they have told me that I must also bring a witness who can tell them about myself and my husband, and is from a local authority/police/civil servant...We live about 4 hours drive from the immigration office, so finding someone in this kind of position who can take a whole weekday off to come sign some document for us is proving impossible...

Has anyone else been asked for this? Is there any alternative?

Please help, stress levels rising rapidly!

There are a few offices that asks for a witness instead of doing a home visit.

The civil servant can be the village head or one of their assistants. They normally have time to go with you since they don't have a 8 to 5 job. You might have to buy them lunch or perhaps give them a little tea money.
