MARRIAGE VISA ( GERMANY)
The inception and implementation of Schengen Visa in 1985 made it possible for commerce and travelers to freely move in and around the Schengen zone consisting of 26 countries. In essence, a provision was also made for Non-European spouses and family members to have the same mobility with that of citizens of Schengen member countries.
Such freedom in movement caused an up-surge of inter-racial marriages. Non-Europeans such as Filipinos can freely pursue a lifetime of togetherness with their European partners / spouses. Germany acknowledged its status as immigrant-receiving country. A lot of factors come into play one of which is the presence of the internet that opened Germany’s door to the world.
