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.

edited November 2013 in Visitor - Tourist Visa
Hello guys! My boyfee plans to sponsor me for a 3-week holiday in Perth, WA. Would anyone willing to share the step by step procedures and requirements? Also, preferred airline company? Do they offer direct flights from Manila to Perth? How much do you think would it cost? We plan to be there by February or March next year.

Thanks everyone!

    My mother's tourist visa was just granted last week. We are only on a 457 visa but we submitted an invitation letter for my mother saying we will be responsible for her expenses. She submitted the following at VIA:

    My mother's documents:
    1. Application form for subclass 600 visa (tourist visa)
    2. Certified copy of bio page of her passport
    3. Photocopy of visas from other countries and departure/arrival stamps showing travel history
    3. Bank certification for her bank account
    4. Photocopy of her bank book to show bank transaction history
    5. Photocopy of NSO her birth cert ( hindi na siya hiningan ng original NSO copy)
    6. Since she is retired (no employment certificate)

    My husband and my documents:
    1. Invitation letter signed by my husband and me (since I do not have work)
    2. Photocopy of payslip of my husband
    3. Photocopy of our bank statements in Australia
    4. Photocopy of our passports

    Wala naman naging problema. Tinawagan lang yung mother ko ng embassy nagtanong lang kung anong gagawin niya sa Australia.

    Although yung sa case mo, I think the most important document that you will have to provide is something that will convince the Case Officer that you are coming back to the Philippines. It is not enough that someone in Australia is going to pay for your expenses but you should be able to show na may babalikan ka sa Pilipinas.

    @apc Thanks for this. Yes I actually plan to submit my approved leave form and my certificate of employment. Also, my credit card statement and other billing statements and my bank statements. I've been to other two countries as well so hopefully their visa stamp would also help in approving my tourist visa to go to Australia.

    We also plan to make itineraries and submit this as well.
