I’ve got an online friend I want to meet. She’s from the Philippines, but currently lives and works in the UAE. (She’s got a working visa there). She’s been there for less than 6 months.
I hold both a British and Irish Passport. We both want to meet half way, so Greece seems like a good meeting point both distance and timezone wise.
Because my friend has less than 6 months of bank statements from the UAE, she won’t be eligible for a Schengen visa without sponsorship. I assume that because she’s appplying from the UAE, she won’t be able to use bank statements from her bank account in the Philippines?
Since I’m British and Irish, I’m an EU Citizen, therefore I have no visa restrictions when entering Greece for whatever reason I choose to travel there. Can I take advantage of this to sponsor my Filipina friend when she meets me in Greece?
