Tourist Visa to visit my boyfriend

Hi everyone. I am planning to apply for a tourist visa to visit my boyfriend in Australia.
He just visited and met me in the Philippines last April. This time it's my turn to go there and meet his family and friends.
However, it's my first time so I wanna ask help and advises on how can I make my application to be possibly granted. I'm a fresh graduate and just moved out from my previous work so I'm currently unemployed so I don't know what requirements should I present. My boyfriend will shoulder everything though including my expenses and accommodation. If anyone can help, will be appreciated so much.

    We are planning to get married so I can live in Aus permanently. So the plan was, tourist visa before he'll sponsor me going there. What could be the best thing to do? And what way is cheaper for both of us. Should we get married here in PH or in Aus? I hope someone can help.

    Is this also applicable if I'll be taking a bridging program and my husband is in Australia, he can lodge my visa application for me? Is that possible?

    @g_pr0530 Most visa applications to Australia are done online, except for some cases where paper application is required. As such, your husband can do the application for you, however, you will still need to send him clear and hi-res scans of required documents. Pwede rin na immi account nya ang gamitin at ikaw na mag-upload ng docs as long as you know the login details of that account.

    @g_pr0530 I think if this is the case, better ikaw mag apply. walang advantage if another person applies for you. Unless agency siguro

    Thanks! btw regarding the form 1415 which is the business visitor stream visa, do I need to still fill out that form even I will lodge application online? or there will be no need?

  • jvansjvans Posts: 1Member

    @Yang_30 malaki ang chance kung may iba ka pang economic ties sa pinas (properties, business etc) kung tourist visa pa lang ang aaplyan mo, mas mura. Otherwise, Prospective marriage visa (offshore), from AU$7700++.

  • Lynchang143Lynchang143 Posts: 10Member

    Hello have you applied for the Tourist Visa already?

    @g_pr0530 Am not sure kung may nabago sa online application process ng Visitor Visa.... last time I did that was 2 years ago pa. However, may drop down choice kung anong visitor visa ang need mo. I just selected the Business Stream. The Form 1415 is for paper applications ata pag sa VFS Global.
