    @cucci for iron bridging program po

    @ishtar Actually sa tingin ko no bearing naman kung employed ka or not since ang main purpose mo is to study a short course, so presupposed na either on leave ka sa current work or resigned. Ang magbibigay ng weight para ma-grant is yung invitation/acceptance ng school sa program na pag-aaralan mo.

    @cucci ok thats good to hear! Another question lang po, how can you say na your intention is to go back for like me na magaaral to be AURN dun hehehe!
  • cuccicucci NSWPosts: 887Member
    @ishtar Hmmm... I tend to look at it this way... Your eventual long term goal is to be a resident or even a citizen, right? If you don't follow the terms/limitations in your current visa grant bear in mind that you will be going through the Department of Home Affairs in your next steps toward your goal. Should you be caught, and you will, unless you live in the bushlands with minimal contact with civilization, you will be deported and put into the lookout list.

    I may even venture to conclude that first generation migrants tend to be more law abiding and contributory to society because their goal is to find a better future for them and their families.

    Just my two cents.

    Hello, hoping someone can help with me with my concerns. I had a 1 year multiple visa that expired last March 10. I used it twice last year to visit my boyfriend (who is Australian). I am planning to visit again this May, but I also have a pending application for GSM 190 visa.

    I'm still currently employed in Manila, but I was wondering if there's a chance that I will be denied given that I have a work visa application pending.

    For reference, I have multiple schengen visas and an active US visa right now (tourist, 10 years validity). Not sure if that will help my case.

    Thanks in advance!

    Good afternoon po,

    Ask ko lang po, sabay po kasi ako nag pass ng tourist visa application namin ng wife ko last Wednesday 7 March. Nagsend po sila kinabukasan sakin ng email na nareceive na nila application ng wife ko po. Yung receipt of application po. Pero yung sakin po until now wala pa po. Normal po ba yun? Is there anything I need to do? Both po samin hindi kailangan ng Health Assessment nacheck ko na po.

    Also, can I upload pa po family photos sa family comp? pahabol nlng po?

    Thank you po.
  • ishtarishtar PhilippinesPosts: 67Member
    @sweet_lady you need to apply for Health declaration sa immiaccount para magkaroon ka ng Hap ID# kasi you will need this for the medical. In Manila, 2 lang nagpprovide ng medical which is St. Lukes Global and NHIS in Salcedo, Makati
  • dee0829dee0829 MelbyPosts: 278Member
    @aj.skywalker hello, if you can go to your immi account to check if the status of your application is still being 'submitted' or changed to 'received'?

    anyway about uploading more documents, you can do so once na receive na. just have to 'view the application' and sa left side may upload documents na option. good luck :)

    Hi! Need your inputs po sana regarding my tourist visa application via Immiaccount. I have already submitted my application when I realized that I answered NO when asked whether or not I had visa refusal or cancellation before. I thought the question was only referring to Australia and not any other country. I was not granted Korean visa 4 years ago. So on that same day that I submitted my application, I filled out Form 1023 to correct the information given. Do you think this will affect the outcome of my application? I have been around 9 Asian countries in the last 6 years. I am working in the government now and have enough savings/show money in my bank certificate. Thanks in advance for your comments.

    @shobskie yes, they would require medical for applications 6months + but they would require you this later if necessary.
