    Visa Success At Last!

    After several YEARS of trying (and no doubt boring you all to death with the saga), I'm overjoyed to be able to tell anybody who's interested that I have finally succeeded in getting my Vietnamese BF a UK Visa.

    He has today been issued with a (wait for it....SIX MONTHS) multiple entry Visitors Visa, valid from late December.

    My new book "How I Did It" will be published in January 2018 and will feature full illustrated details - meanwhile helpful advice for anybody in the same position can he had free of charge by PM.

    Thanks to those SGT members who supported/helped along the way.

    Persistence sometimes pays off.

    December is a bit of a worry though - hope he doesn't freeze his nuts off!

    Congrats! Hope you guys have a good time in the UK.

    May I ask, how do you think he'll take the UK? Do you think he'll enjoy it, or will he hate it, and won't be able to wait to get back on a plane to Vietnam? Could go either way, all depending on his personality. For example, think he'll be ok for eating over there? There's no sticky rice in the UK.

    Re: Visa Success At Last!

    The temperature will be the biggest hurdle - but I do have my central heating on 24/7/365 at 23c which although I realise is cooler than he is used to, it's not exactly freezing.

    For outside, a trip to the shops will be high on the agenda as he has nothing warm to wear (why would he?). Once he is properly kitted out he should be ok - if I can survive the heat of Saigon why can't he survive the cold of Scotland lol

    Food-wise he eats very simply, really just boiled rice, fried chicken, pork, and vegetable soups. He likes seafood but that will be curbed pronto as we'd be broke in a month with that malarkey at UK prices.

    Personality wise he's a quiet one - perfectly happy at home as opposed to be out clubbing every night so hopefully that will work out.

    However the proof of the pudding will be in the eating !!

    He's been given a 6 month Visa but its multiple entry so if he gets homesick he can take a break, go home, and come back at a later date

    Well done there.

    Remember he's got to get from the airport without freezing his nuts off as well. Scotland's a bit cold for me in summer, never mind December. So I've no idea how he's going to manage.

    Well obviously I'd be meeting him at the airport so maybe I'll bring a duvet he can wrap round himself in the car


    Hey guys, it's Scotland, not Siberia !!

    Ah scottish, that is surely great news. I'm genuinely really happy for you both.

    I assume by now you've picked out the required tartan for his kilt?
    Hitchhiking's more of a challenge on the road less travelled.

    Throw him at the deep end.
    Instead of 23c. 24/7 indoors go straight to a grouse moor on Day 2.
    Followed by a day’s rough shooting.
    On day 3 a more relaxed session of driven shooting.
    Then a few days or whatever it takes to bag a Stag.
    Then a go at Pike in your local burn.
    In other words normal life for a Scot....he must learn that when in Rome....
