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.

    Hi Guys... I got my visa decision yesterday. I submitted it last October 8...sadly I was refused. I think the decision maker based my application solely on my income and didnot consider my tenureship and my travel history. Been in the company for the past 6 years. I also been to 18 countries around Asia. This includes Japan, Korea and Singapore which if I have the intention to work or stay illegally I can just go ahead and stay to these countries which I think the salary are at par or more than the salary in Australia. So those who will apply without an sponsor make sure you have big amount of money in your savings... mine is 150k...and they think its not enough for 1 week stay
  • cpa_oct2011cpa_oct2011 MandaluyongPosts: 324Member
    @orioe ayy.. :( yung skn wala pa... Sana nman favorable.. Huhu.. My kapatid nmn ako na PR. 80k lng show money ko.

    Nag txt ba sila sayo at e-mail re. sa visa mo? Gusto ko sana tumawag sa VFS e.. Thanks.
  • orioeorioe Davao CityPosts: 14Member
    Hi @cpa_oct2011 ... kelan ka nag apply? Ako kasi I applied online eh. Then yesterday afternoon nila ine-mail yung result sa akin

    I think having a sponsor naman will have positive effect on your application.
  • libragirllibragirl MandaluyongPosts: 34Member
    Hi @orioe Is this your first time to apply as tourist to australia? I'm sure u submitted proof employment to be sure na babalik ka dito and you won't overstay. Kasi minsan they want to make sure na may babalikan ka dito like work. And do u have relatives or friends in Australia that will support you during your stay? it can help din kasi.
  • orioeorioe Davao CityPosts: 14Member
    Hi @libragirl...yes I submitted my COE, ITR and payslips ... my salary is minimal lang kasi...18k a month... but been with the company for 6years. I also have passports full of stamps which I think enough ng evidence na bumabalik ako ng Pilipinas after my trip. Been to Japan 4x... Korea 5x and Singapore more than 10x... Im a backpacker kasi eh... So parang kung gusto ko mag work abroad illegally... dito nalang ako sa mga country na to di ba? Specially in Japan...

    Yes this is my first time to apply ... and wala akong relative or family sa Australia eh.
  • libragirllibragirl MandaluyongPosts: 34Member
    @orioe...i see complete naman pla employment records mo but still depende rin kasi talaga sa decision maker. Ako nga ilang beses nakapunta dun but still im not confident kng ma grant ako ulit til now waiting pa din ako...Did they say the reason bakit? Maybe try to apply na lang ulit...
  • orioeorioe Davao CityPosts: 14Member
    @libragirl oo nga e... nakakainis kapwa pinoy na decision maker ung nagdi deny sa ten :(( i think wala na akong time para mag apply ulet 3 weeks na lang kasi flight ko na. November 16... sa tingin mo ba aabot pa ako?
  • orioeorioe Davao CityPosts: 14Member

    @libragirl based sa pagkakaintindi ko... parang I dont have strong ties daw dito sa Philippines and minimal daw yung income ko dito kaya possible daw na mag stay ako dun illegally at mag seek ng employment. When ka nagpasa ng application?
  • libragirllibragirl MandaluyongPosts: 34Member
    @orioe nagbook ka na ba ticket mo? saan ka sa australia ppunta if ever?... im not sure kasi they say 30 days max processing time nila. next time mag-apply ka attach ka ng tentative flight details mo and try to attach leave of absence too.
  • orioeorioe Davao CityPosts: 14Member
    @libragirl yup nagbook na ako ng ticket.. cebupac i also attached it sa application ko together with my accomodation booking. I also attached approved vacation leave with pay from HR. I also attached my future flight booking to Korea, Japan and Bali...
  • cpa_oct2011cpa_oct2011 MandaluyongPosts: 324Member
    @libragirl @orioe ako nga walang ITR at COE e. Haha.. Tpos 6 mos. palang ako sa work ko.. Tpos sinabi ko pa punta akong sydney with 80k of money... Wahahaha!!!! Nkka kaba..
  • libragirllibragirl MandaluyongPosts: 34Member
    Kumpleto naman pla @orioe documents mo so why refused ang application mo... maybe try to apply na lng ulit later on...
  • libragirllibragirl MandaluyongPosts: 34Member
    @orioe i lodge my application sa VFS Global nung 8 October until now im still waiting for the result mag 1 month na next week.
  • libragirllibragirl MandaluyongPosts: 34Member
    @cpa_oct2011 are u still waiting like me? hehe.... i think its an advantage na may relative or friend na nag invite sa applicant.
  • cpa_oct2011cpa_oct2011 MandaluyongPosts: 324Member
    @libragirl oo waiting pa din! Hehe.. Let hope for the best! San ka punta if ever?

    You can now lodge an application online via immi account. This is what I did for my inlaws. Got the approval in 1 week after completing all the requirements including medical.
  • libragirllibragirl MandaluyongPosts: 34Member
    Why not @cpa_oct2011 explore australia while you're there. Maganda na Melbourne then shopping ka sa Queen Vic Market ng souvenirs hehe :)

    @AussieMom maybe next time itry ko na maglodge via online. thanks :)

    @JCsantos Gaano pa katagal if thru courier ppadala result after nila magtext? tnx :)
  • rencerencerencerencerencerence MelbournePosts: 101Member
    sa girlfriend ko denied din xa last time, ang dahilan eh d nakapagprovide ng any info in regards with family in philippines. kailangan talaga masatisfy mo cla in terms of family ties, adequate funds, at work commitment. factor ung sponsor as ur adequate funds kaya in doubt cla. grabe nga eh higpit nla haha. pero the next day inapply ko ulit through online naman, kc vfs ung una eh kaya saglit lang magapply pagkaonline. 1 month talaga yan processing pero try mo tawag ka baka mapaexpedite mo, un nga lang depende sa sitwAsyon kung expedite nla
