Waiting Times At British Embassy Manila


Recommended Posts

I have an appointment booked for 10.45am the day after I arrived to get this bloody legal capacity nonsense. Will I be able to get through the queues there to my appointment on time or will they keep me waiting in a long queue outside and therefore potentially miss my appointment. I intend to get there an hour or so earlier. Anyone visited the British Embassy in Manila as a British citizen?

My advice is take a least two photo ID ; Passport/ Drivers licence.

Make sure they know your in the queue.

Would you believe that a few years ago (The last time I entered the Embassy)

I was turned away with my passport in hand and my wife's visa app; denied because

some British guy/ official wouldn't allow me in saying I needed two forms of ID!

(My wife begged me not to make a fuss)

I dread to think if I had been robbed, what help, if any, I would of received :no:

When you arrive at the gate house make sure that you only speak to the guards inside the booth. You should have Confirmation of your Appointment with you ( Hope you printed it.) if you have any Problems Ring this lady and tell her you are there

Sometimes there is total Misunderstandings at the gate but by Ringing her she will soon have you in and Sorted.

 

Best of Luck  :thumbsup:

Just aside that Number from the PI is not with the +63 so it is 2 858 2200.

 Anyway I have put their page for you so you can have a look. :thumbsup:

I needed two forms of ID!

 

 

Don't take this the wrong way because I have never seen you, but judging from British stereotypes  :hystery: you should not need ID, just show 'im yer teef!

(I was born British but had my teeth capped since then so it would not work for me  :attention:  )

Dave,

Firstly I'm not that young and secondly I ain't taking my teeth out to show nobody..... :hystery:

 

(You would need to take out a mortgage to pay for Teeth capping in the UK)

I don't have a drivers licence but I have a UK ID card and an employee card with my photo and name on it. Is the queue there long?
Is it advisable to get there 2 hrs early?

 

Jack will have more knowledge about these days,

At the time I went, the queue was already forming at 5;30 in the morning , hopefully things have changed a lot since then.
