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.

Has anyone tried AMVS Legal or Carmine Mercorella as agen

looking for an agent, found this Firm AMVS, seems legit. The Migration Agent is also in MARA. Has any of you guys heard or have been a client? Thx

    Just a quick followup, how was the Assessment Process?

    The first step in availing AMVS/MNAL's services is to attend their seminars. Where are you currently based? They conduct seminars in Manila and Singapore on a regular basis (one or two in every 6 weeks). Then you will have to book a one on one appointment where your basic eligibility for skilled migration will be assessed.

    Basic in a sense that 1) you have relevant years of occupation to gain points for experience 2) your occupation is in Australia's skilled occupation list 3) you are under 45 years of age 4) education level and so on...

    You will also be likely asked what job code you would like to be assessed. Web Designer and Web Developer have 2 different job codes and they have different assessing bodies. VETASSESS for web designer and ACS for web developer. These are the assessing bodies that will review and approve your eligibility from a skill/work experience aspect of the points matrix.

    All of these you will learn once you have engaged their services. I suggest that upon having your one on one session, ask as many questions as you can. Hope this helps.

    i already passed the PTE English Test, im on to the next step which is skill assessment. I was interviewed by Mr. Carmine thru Skype, never met him in person yet, seems like a decent, competent Agent.

  • mightysigsmightysigs PhilippinesPosts: 52Member

    @prncpldwnkr ohh so you already signed a contract with him? Yes he is indeed very competent. Regarding your assessment question, assessing bodies differ in terms of requirements. We were assessed by TRA. You on the other hand may be assessed either by ACS or VETASSESS depending on which job code you'll choose between the dev and designer. Our assessment took a good 3 months before we got the results. Yours may vary.

    Hi @mightysigs , about the payment options available, i choose to do it thru Credit Card, Mr. Carmine asks that i email him all the Details including the CVV number. is that ok?

    Hi, I can’t really provide an advice on that part whether it is ok or not as our choice for the mode of payment is cash. We usually hand him over the AUD notes whenever he is in PH to conduct seminars and attend to some interested clients. Reason for our choice is that there are additional charges when paying through card or bank transfer.
