Immigration and Guidance Counseling Cert

Hi,

This isn't my first time traveling, naka travel na rin ako mag-isa to Singapore twice, most recently last 2017 and never pa ko nagka-problem sa immigration

Marami akong nababasang na-ooffload tho, di ko alam na issue pala siya kasi nga I never had problems before pero now kinakabahan ako. This will be my first time to travel to Australia alone (to visit my boyfriend) pero we will meet in Singapore muna for a few days kasi may conference siya dun sa december.

If ma-question ako, I will tell the truth na boyfriend ko yung nagbayad and magbabayad ng lahat ng expenses, pero nababasa ko rin sa ilang websites na kailangan ng guidance counseling certificate from CFO kahit imemeet lang yung partner in another country? Totoo ba? Hindi naman ako magma-migrate o magpapakasal sa boyfriend ko habang nasa Sg or Aus

Parang too much naman na hingan ng guidance counseling certificate kahit bibisita lang?

    @roastedalmond What is your current Au visa status? The CFO sticker is a PH immigration requirement. If you will be visiting Australia direct from Manila or via Singapore on a visitor (600) visa that sticker is not required.

    Visitor visa subclass 600 lang, and yes Manila - Singapore (5 days) - Sydney yung route ko

    Iniinterview ba talaga nila sa interrogation room kapag may foreign boyfriend? I'm so tempted to get a dummy return ticket from SG and hostel booking for 5 days na lang and not mention Australia para mabilis makalagpas sa immigration haha I'm also still a student

    @roastedalmond Wag po masyado magpaka-stress... baka mas lalong mapagdudahan ka kapag magmukhang takot at may tinatago... besides baka masira ang aura sa paningin ni bf.

    Random naman ang mga ini-interview ng immigration... so pag sakaling napili ka, just be normal... wala ka namang ginagawang masama o masamang balak. Answer when asked and don't volunteer answers.

    Thanks. So di ko na kailangan kumuha ng CFO certificate? May mga nababasa kasi akong nao-offload pag walang certificate kahit tourist visa lang

    Baka nag ooverthink lang din ako kasi naka-travel na ko mag-isa dalawang beses before, pero first time ko to Australia mag-isa, baka maipit ako sa immigration kasi dadaan akong Singapore muna tapos bf ko pa magbabayad ng lahat, pati yung hotel booking sa SG nasa pangalan niya

    Fake news po siguro kung may na-offload na tourist dahil walang CFO sticker, btw CFO sticker at di po certificate... baka ibang certificate ang hinahanap although nung first time na punta ako dito sa Au as tourist eh passport at visa lang naman hinahap sa akin on exit sa Philippine immigration... upon arrival sa Au immigration passport lang kasi electronically connected naman sa passport ang visa details.

    Actually, since via Sg ka, you only need to present your passport dahil as ASEAN member, we are allowed 14 days visa free entry as tourist, if I remember correctly.
