I find this quite a difficult question to answer (Im filling in the online form for her) as she has no job, house, bank account...you know...virtually nothing. She looks after her mother...that's about it. Of course we have to make the relevant immigration authorities believe that she is going to return home. Regardless of the fact my ass is on the line because i am the supporting sponsor for her application. Its still up to her to prove she will return home. I previously thought my sponsorship and a return ticket would be enough. That's obviously not the case. She must present her own bonafide "credentials" for the NZ tourist visa. Ive read on the forums of guys bringing back girls with similar "nothing" backgrounds, so Im all ears.
On a side note have any you fellahs taken a girl home on a one way ticket? It has to be stipulated in the NZ visa whether return or one way, not sure about other countries. My belief is that Philippines customs wont let her board unless she has a return ticket.
