Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too.

    Hello everyone. I hope may makatulong sa inquiry ko. Planning to apply partner visa onshore sc820 with my son. Will lodge tourist visa soon. Im currently unemployed and the only proof i have is my savings acct and sponsorship ng partner ko. will these be sufficient kaya para magrant tourist visa namin ng baby ko? Or possible po ba ako muna magapply ng tourist visa and maiiwan muna baby ko para may reason na babalik din ako ng pinas, then kuhanan na lang namin ng tourist visa si baby after ng first exit ko sa australia? Maraming salamat sa answers po! :)

    hi @batman My family is going to visit my relatives in Victoria. Meron naman sila binigay na invitation and citizen na rin sila doon. Ask ko lang pwede ba sponsor ng father ko yung kapatid ko? ilalagay sa application since sabay sabay naman sila aalis kung maaprove. Free lancer inerior designer sya. Meron naman sya bank account pero kakastart pa lang nya kase magparegister sa DTI ng business nya wala pa sya business permit and BIR on going processing pa lang so incomplete pa ang papers nya or better ba na self funded ilagay? Alin kaya mas safe at malaki chance ma approve ang visa? Thanks!

    Hi all, question lang po. Do i still need to apply for Transit visa if 2 hours layover lang kami sa Sydney?
    How about 10-hr layover?
    Any idea how much ang babayaran?
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi to all! I'm applying for tourist visa for my parents and need some advise.
    1. I used my immi account to lodge the application and selected myself as the authorized representative for all communications. Kaya sa required docs, need ng 956 form. Someone told me na its not needed because the applicant is my direct relative. Is this correct? Can I choose not to attach anything?
    2. My parents have never travelled before, for evidence, can I have a letter explaining the same to attach as evidence.
    3. If I submit my application today, for a tourist visa for stay less than 3 months tapos yung planned travel date nila is Oct 1-30 pa. Ung visa validity usually ba pinapaabot nila to cover ung planned travel date? Gusto ko kasi sana mag apply ng maaga pra makabili ng kira murang ticket.

    Thank you in advance sa sasagot!

  • snuffboxsnuffbox pampangaPosts: 30Member
    @amari0527 @ozsome . I have friend who is just at Australia right now. She resigned at the moment she recieved here TV. Mas strict daw immigration dito sa pinas, and she ask favor to the hr if someone calls about her status in the company. Ayun ok na sya at meron ng working visa sa australia. Very risky yung ginawa nya pero it went well.
  • amari0527amari0527 qatarPosts: 25Member

    @snuffbox Hello po Sir...i need help to answer this For applying visa Australia #Give details of why the applicant is at their current location including the end date of their current visa patulong po thought or example about this please po...
  • cuccicucci NSWPosts: 846Member

    @miasmith Can't seem to remember that question when I applied for visitor visa sometime ago. Pero it seems na the system detects that you are not in your home country, i.e. Philippines? Are you applying from another country? Then perhaps you need to provide your visa status in that country, the reason kung bakit ka andyan and until when is your visa in that country valid.

    @miasmith We applied online before but sa Singapore kame based. Not sure the difference in terms of strictness sa Pinas vs sa labas ng Pinas. Madali lang application. Took like weeks lang. Natagalan sa anak ko kasi na tabanunan but all went well after we followed up.

    yes, you can lodge online. it is actually easier than having an agent.
    no need to send your passport away, since tourist visa is electronic.
    then just pay via cc.
    it will take at least 2 weeks.
    you will receive the grant via email. print and present to immigration at the airport
