How to Get a UK Visa for a Thai
This book is a guide to obtaining a UK visitor's visa for a friend or loved one. It is sometimes referred to as a fiancee visa, because, in Thailand at least, many men try to get one for their girlfriend. Having said that, the details in this book apply to anyone trying to obtain a visa for someone else and to any country without special status. The only difference would be the location of the embassy. However, this book does not go into the details of how to fill in the forms. The embassy's website and staff are better at that and the questions change anyway. Rather, this book tells the applicant and sponsor what the embassy help desk does not say or at least hides very well. It guides you in the minefield of how you are expected, but never told how, to prove that you are in a 'long-standing relationship' so that you get your visa the first time and avoid unnecessary, expensive agency fees and the heartache of refusal. The cost of the book includes free email consultation with the author by email.

About Owen Jones
Author Owen Jones, from Barry, South Wales, came to writing novels relatively recently, although he has been writing all his adult life. He has lived and worked in several countries and travelled in many, many more. He speaks, or has spoken, seven languages fluently and is currently learning Thai, since he lives in Thailand with his Thai wife of ten years. "It has never taken me long to learn a language," he says, "but Thai bears no relationship to any other language I have ever studied before." When asked about his style of writing, he said, "I'm a Celt, and we are Romantic. I believe in reincarnation and lots more besides in that vein. Those beliefs, like 'Do unto another...', and 'What goes round comes around', Fate and Karma are central to my life, so they are reflected in my work'. His first novel, 'Daddy's Hobby' from the series 'Behind The Smile: The Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya' has been followed by four sequels, but his largest collection is 'The Megan Series', eighteen novellas on the psychic development of a young teenage girl, the subtitle of which, 'A Spirit Guide, A Ghost Tiger and One Scary Mother!' sums them up nicely. As Owen puts it: 'Born in the Land of Song, living in the Land of Smiles'.
