Newbie here just want to share what happen to me today.
I am a rank and file employee here in private company for 5 years now.
I have a former boss in Australia who invited me for 1-2 weeks vacation just to catch up on some business proposal.
He sent me an invitation letter and his bank statment for supporting documents. I prepared all the necessary document needed from my side.
I have a money in the bank around USD3000 which i thought would not really necessary for me to submit because i have sponsor.
After 10 days from the time of lodgement i received a letter of refusal notification with the reason of "insufficient as evidence as self supporting of the stay in Australia"
The decision made by Jerryboy of immigration.
I think i was judged being a rank and file employee.
I just want to add i have Japanese Visa valid until 2024 multiple entry. Chinese visa expired last January 2019 and i do travel a lot plus i used to have an Aussie visa too but applied in foreign country not here in Philippines.
I really feel bad about being rejected to have a visa.
