Confirmation of the relationship with the sponsor

This category includes:

  • a letter from the sponsor, where the sponsor tells the story of your Dating, life together, wedding, and so on.
  • joint photo. You must have wedding photos of you with his relatives and him with your relatives. The more diverse the photos, the better, but don’t take too many.
  • Screenshots from social networks.
  • Phone call history (multiple screenshots)
  • History of SMS messages (whatsapp, viber, messenger etc).
  • Postcards, greetings, letters.
  • A big plus is the proof of your cohabitation or meetings. If the meeting took place online, and you have never met in person, it is better to meet before submitting documents, because virtual relationships cause a lot of distrust in the immigration officer. How we met my husband I tell you here.
