Do you have friends or relatives in the UK and would like to visit there regularly? Are you in love with the UK and want to tour every nook and corner of each city? Well, you will need a 10 Year Multiple Entry UK Visa to enjoy the United Kingdom to its fullest! No more applying at the Embassy every time you go, but only applying for one time!
Filipinos can apply for a UK visa through a Visa Application Center in Manila or Cebu. A visa can allow you to enter the United Kingdom, which is composed of England, Northern Island, Scotland, and Wales. A Single Entry Visa can allow you to enter once for a maximum of 6 months. But a 10-year multiple Entry UK Visa will allow you to enter and exit the UK a lot of times within 10 years.
