Sorry for the down-time kanina, I've sorted it out, everything should be back to normal.
Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

Good Day po sa lahat. More than 3 years na po ako dito sa Qatar. Medyo naguguluhan lng po kasi walang option for office na malapit dito. Ask ko lang po kung ano dapat ilagay dito? Thank you.

    @amari0527 It says there to select a Department Office closest to your location, so if you're in Qatar, you can see if they have an office in Abu Dhabi or Dubai?

    Yes po meron po sa Dubai. Pero nakanote din po kasi ito,

    The applicant may be required to attend an Australian Government Office for an interview. Which is the closest office to the applicant’s current location?

    Thank you po pala sa response @athelene
  • atheleneathelene SydneyPosts: 371Member
    @amari0527 You can just select Dubai. They'll only require you to go if they request you for an interview (hopefully you won't be required to).

    I am also currently based in Qatar and applied for Visa 600 for Australia last month. In my case, I put Dubai because it was the closest city from Qatar. Hindi na ako nag-undergo ng interview. It only took me 3 days to get my visa. Make sure to schedule your biometrics.
