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.

    For people in Australia who want to apply online to extend their stay for tourism purposes. You will be required to meet all of the following:
    -hold a substantive visa
    -not have condition 8503 'No further stay' imposed on your current visa or have been granted an 8503 waiver
    -meet all the eligibility criteria for this visa.
    Note: For applications in Australia you do not need to be an eligible passport holder in order to apply online. In Australia, all passport holders can apply online for a Visitor visa extension.

    Hi @criselvillares - thank you for that info. Yeah i dont have 8503 condition. I'm just thinking when is the best time to apply because my visa expire on March 24
  • JovieJovie Posts: 21Member
    @purplesyd same stage pala tau. But I think don't extend it just do the partner or de facto visa right away . Kasi if inextend mo sya not sure maybe they will give u new condition like 8503 then di ka pwede mag file ng partner visa .
  • purplesydpurplesyd MelbournePosts: 7Member
    @Jovie - talaga.. plan kasi namin na mag partner visa pero kasi dito ss Victoria need na living together kau ng 12months eh wala pa kmi 12months living together. ikaw na mag fifile na agad ng partner visa?
  • JovieJovie Posts: 21Member
    @purplesyd sorry for late reply. I'm sure sa de facto if u in relationship for 12month ok Lang Di naman sinabi na magkasama dapat kau sa Bahay.in ur case better to file fiancée visa they will let u stay for 9 months until u have date when ur plan to get married My case I have one year visa but need to exit every 3 months that's my condition.and we been for 3 years.try mo iextend not to sure on the result. U can ask embassy what the best way girl. How long naba kau ni bf mo???if u have documents to prove ur relationship on the partner categories then u don't need to be afraid . Once u file the partner visa u can stay here for 12-18month until they decide. Hope it help

  • kazelceekazelcee PhilippinesPosts: 26Member
    Hi @nickoryanfang. I just applied for an extension today for my current Tourist Visa which my 3 months will end this October 19. As soon as I submitted my application, I got a Bridging Visa A. Eto daw yung visa na hahawakan ko while awaiting dun sa extension, mag eend yung bridging visa as soon as may result na yung extension visa mo. Better applied at least 2-3 weeks before your current TV ends. I paid around 360AUD for the extension in immi. Hope this helps :)
  • nickoryanfangnickoryanfang QatarPosts: 66Member
    @kazelcee thanks oo really helps.. haha way too much sa 360aud. thank you :) congrats!
    i am planning to re apply ng november 16. since october 29 ang due ko dito sa australia,.. do you have any idea on what could be the best reason to get a multple entry ? :) salamat
  • nickoryanfangnickoryanfang QatarPosts: 66Member
    "The Length of further stay field must align with the Requested end date field.
    "
    ano po meaning nito mga idol. nag lolodge na po ako salmat po
  • kazelceekazelcee PhilippinesPosts: 26Member
    Wala din akong idea @nickoryanfang kung anong basis nila for the single or multiple entry. But still rather state the real reason why you are applying your TV or extending your TV

    Hello, naka multiple entry ako until next year, pero yung expire ng visa ko for this entry is Nov 29, I am still waiting for my 482 visa to be granted dito sa Australia. Hindi kasi as onshore nilodge yung application ko yung 482 kaya di ako magagrantan ng bridging visa, my problem is ang tagal na ng waiting period ko for the 482 visa. Is it possible mag apply ako ng extension? And usually gaano katagal sya nagagrant?
  • cuccicucci NSWPosts: 810Member
    @MissAussie Curious... parang may mali ata sa process? Are you saying na sinabay ang application ng nomination/sponsorship at visa application mo? Employer mo ba ang magbabayad pati sa visa mo? AFAIK, dapat ma-approve muna ang nomination/sponsorship, be issued a TRN, which is then to be used for your visa application.
    Can you clarify with your employer/sponsor kasi baka yan ang reason kung bakit wala pang update.
    I may be wrong though.

    @cucci Aug 24 nalodge nomination ko, Aug 28 nilodge nila Visa ko, yes sila nagbagad pati visa fee ko. They also gave me the TRN number for both Nomination and visa, naginquire din ako sa immigration asking for an update for my nomination., and they always saying na on process pa din.
  • MissAussieMissAussie PasigPosts: 115Member
    @cucci I've also read sa Immigration website pwede pagsabayin ang lodging, may TRN number na kagad once nalodge ang nomination kahit hindi pa to naapprove
  • cuccicucci NSWPosts: 810Member
    @MissAussie Oh ok, I stand corrected. Good thing hindi ikaw magbabayad ng visa application fee mo. Scary lang kasi na kung di ma-approve ang nomination/sponsorship tapos sabihin na di refundable ang visa fees... almost 4k AUD na ata...

    october 17 na ngayon. october 9 ako nag lodge ng visa extension.. 17 to 31 days processing time .sana ma approbahan bago flight ko.. flight ko is october 29. hay fingers cross
  • kazelceekazelcee PhilippinesPosts: 26Member
    Hi @nickoryanfang I just received my extension grant kanina. October 3 ako naglodge. Exactly took 14 days before the approval. Tapos tomorrow na ma eexpire yung 1st TV ko. Supposedly last Sunday, october 14 ang flight ko pauwi ng Ph. Kala ko nga magagamit ko yung bridging visa A na binigay nila after lodging the extension. Good thing din kase I applied for 6months extension and it was granted. High hopes and prayers lang, sayo na susunod ;)
  • nickoryanfangnickoryanfang QatarPosts: 66Member
    wow @kazelcee 6 months ba ang hiningi mong extension? congratulations!
    anong ngyari sa flight mo kung supposedly sunday ang flight mo ? hehe galing naman!! high hopes and prayers nga .sana ma approbahan din ung sken
  • kazelceekazelcee PhilippinesPosts: 26Member
    @nickoryanfang Yep. 6 months hiningi ko. I risked on ditching my flight but i tried to be positive as possible na ma approve yung TV. Took the risk and it was worth it
  • nickoryanfangnickoryanfang QatarPosts: 66Member
    Siguro hnd nman nla ma reject ano hahah..
  • nickoryanfangnickoryanfang QatarPosts: 66Member
    My tnong pla ako hehe sorry. What if due ko na sa bridging visa. Tpos na ang bridging visa. Kailangn ko ng umuwi. Tpos wlang flight. Napa overstay ako ng 1 day. What will happen po
  • kazelceekazelcee PhilippinesPosts: 26Member
    Hi @nickoryanfang I think walang expiry date ang bridging visa unless wala pang result yung tv application mo. So bale unlimitied days yung stay mo if wala pa result yung visa. Pray and be positive lang. Malapit na yan ❤️
  • nickoryanfangnickoryanfang QatarPosts: 66Member
    salamat! @kazelcee




    for those people who wishes to extend their (TV).. mag lodge na kayo 1 month before ma tapos ang visa nyo ..17-31 days bago lumabas ang result :D sana makatulong to!
    more power sa forum na to..

    Hi @jhen511 Same requirements lang ng TV but the documents must be updated and will have a signature from the JP or Justice of Peace in any courthouses near your current australia location.

    Here’s what I submitted with mine as well as from my fiance which is my sponsor.

    Applicant
    - scanned passport with JP
    - previous printed TV grant copy with JP
    - return ticket with JP
    - itinerary activities

    Sponsor
    - scanned passport with JP
    - updated payslip
    - updated bank account
    - or any financial supporting documents
    - filled statutory declaration regarding his invitation and the reason for extension with JP (you can ask the blank form in the courthouse)
