Subject: Visit Visa Application for Unmarried Couple

Dear Madam/ Sir,

1st paragraph: Introduce yourself (provide full name as written in passport), purpose of letter, name of partner, requested number of days with dates, address in Germany

2nd paragraph: Brief background of your relationship, how you met, why you need to see each other again

3rd paragraph: Sponsor’s name, work and address (In my case, my partner’s mom is sponsoring me so I have a separate paragraph for this. Include this in the previous paragraph if your partner is also sponsoring you so your letter is more concise.)

4th paragraph: Your credentials (eg. job, salary, Philippines investments, education if relevant/ recent, volunteer work, anything that would increase your credibility as an applicant)

5th paragraph: Other circumstances such as explanation why you do not have an Income Tax return yet

6th paragraph: Strong reasons why they should approve your visa (eg. travel history), strong ties if any (This is the most important and should be a convincing paragraph so I placed this in the end – law of recency in Psychology)

Please find the following documents according to the visit visa for unmarried couple checklist. I also included additional documents to support this letter.

  • Passport (copy and original)
  • Visa Application Form, duly dated and signed with attached 2 passport-size photos
  • Invitation Letter
  • Flight Details
  • Formal Obligation (original & copy)
  • 6 months Bank Statement & Certificate
