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.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.
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.

Hi gusto ko lang maintindihan kung magkano talga magagastos ko based dito sa bagong release na processing fees.

http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/990i.pdf

I will be bringing my wife and my 7 months old baby.

My nakalagay kasi sa page 8 for visa 189 na 1st installement is AUD 3,060 then second installement is 4,250.

Ano pagkakaintindi nyo dito?

Also once you lodge EOI and got invited, when ka magbabayad nito?

Thanks

    @vhoythoy - the 2nd installment is only if your secondary/dependents above 18 yrs old are with less than functional english...

    functional english can be satisfied by either
    - IELTS 4.5
    - cert of english as medium of instruction from school.

    @lock_code2004 thanks again mr. lock_code. nakahinga ako nang mabasa ko yung thread regarding sa 2nd payment.. i thought before na obligado to pay it, yun pala kelangan lang maka score ka atleast 4.5 sa IELTS tama ba? so bale ang kailangan lang pala is 3060 AUD. kasama na po ba lahat ng family members dito? like us, a family of 4. Then you wife ko for sure naman makakakuha ng above 6 na IELTS kasi before naka 6.5 na sya nung mag try kami sa canada. for clarification lang sir. thanks again.

    @aarenslive021608 : if i may...

    for the visa fee of A$3,060, kasama na lahat dyan pati secondary applicants and dependents. so yes, for your family of 4, isang bayad lang yan.

    and for your wife....actually, if you're not claiming partner points from her then she doesn't need to take the IELTS. you can just ask for a certificate of english as medium of instruction from her university. that will be enough proof of her functional english. sayang din ang matitipid sa IELTS fee. :)
