    Hi!

    Ask ko lang po, i am currently in Macau and apply subclass 600 visa through Immiaccount base in Hongkong. It says Finalised pero I haven't receive any spam msg or grant visa through my immiaccount.

    I try contacting na ata lahat pero kasi via email lahat no direct call or anything.

    Can anyone help me? Or had this experience?
    Kasi its more than a month na, i submitted it nung March 22 2018 and says finalised on April 6 2018.

    Thank you po ☺️

    Applied the TV of my sister last May 28, 2018 via ImmiAccount Online.
    Status as of 5/31/2018 - Received
    First time to file it online before via VFS kami or manual. It took us 30days in manual application bago dumating ang grant. Sa Online 17-29 days nakalagay na processing times. Hopefully, ma approve ang sister ko:)

    @Anci my visa came out yesterday afternoon :) ung sa sister mo kamusta?
  • CriscaCrisca ManilaPosts: 11Member
    hi guys.. my husband and i lodged our tv 600 app june3 thru immiaccount, granted june5. multiple entries in 1 year, longest stay 3months.
    sa visa app 3weeks lang intended stay nmen, but since 3months ung grant, were planning to maximize it. we're thinking if magkakaissue ba un sa immig when we get there? makikita ba nila ung details nung visa app nmen? first timers here ü
  • dee0829dee0829 MelbyPosts: 278Member
    @Crisca I didn;t have any personal experience but I think if you are granted with multiple entry for 1yr, 3months/visit, then you can maximise like what you wanted. i dont think there would be an issue as long as you are following your visa grant status.

  • AnciAnci Quezon CityPosts: 61Member
    @apple806. Wow! Congrats! Wala pa din sa sister ko. Actually, 2nd time nya na to papunta Australia pero first time pa lang na online application. Balitaan kita pag na approve. Sana today na yung result. Akala ko yung processing nila by date of application hindi pala. Ask ko lang sa email ba send yung visa or sa immi account messages? Thanks

    I applied June 15, granted June 19. Approved in two business days only. I just made sure all required documents are uploaded. I submitted a 2-3 weeks planned activities, but was granted with 3 months maximum stay, multiple entry for one year.
  • EllisBellEllisBell PhilippinesPosts: 27Member
    Hello po sa lahat. May questions po sana ako, hope may makatulong. I just got my TV to AU granted and plano ko po umalis very soon.

    1. Ask ko lang po if mas ok ba yung plane ticket na bilhin ko eh sa karatig bansa muna natin, like SG or KL. Di ko kasi alam if mahigpit IO ng Cebu pag ang ticket mo ay papuntang AU agad.

    2. Malalaman ba ng IO kung nagrant ka ng tourist visa sa isang bansa kahit di mo i-declare? Not sure if meron silang access sa ganung information. Gusto ko lang po kasi maghanda in case interviewhin pa sa immigration.

    Mga kabayan!

    Please excuse my ignorance and hindi ako sure if naitanong na to dito.

    Question:

    First time ko mag-apply ng year-long tourist visa for my brother. He was granted a visa today and I'm not quite sure about the duration "length of stay: 3 months from the date of each arrival"...that means ba na 3 months max lang sya pede mgstay then he needs to exit then he can just return here anytime in a year? For those na naka experience with this kind of visa, can u kindly share what u did after 3 months? Like do u have to go back to Phils.then after 2 days balik na dito etc. Thanks in advance! :-)

    @EllisBell when you depart from Cebu, you have to have your visa printed with you. you can depart from which ever country you want, and they would probably know that you have a visa granted to AU. they are more concerned about your return. so have your visa granted print ready and your return ticket ready.

    Hello po sa lahat. Sorry matagal ako di nakapag-log-in from last time. Thanks pala kay @dee0829 for answering my questions.

    @chyrstheen , nung nag-apply kasi ako ng au visa, meron pa ako work. tapos nagresign ako a month later. Ayun na nga, hinarang ako ng IO sa Pinas. Di daw sapat na may enough travel funds, kelangan proof of ties to PH - like job or business. Nakipag-reason ako sa kanya at buti na lang pinagbigyan nya ako. Ngayon, nasa labas na ako ng ph pero paalis pa lang ako for au.

    May tanong sana akong immigration related. PM nyo naman ako pls kung meron maalam dito abt this, para private na lang yung convo. Salamat po in advance.

    Hi po, may question po ako hope you could help.

    I work from home with Australian employers for about a year now. They are planning to take us to Melbourne for a week by September or October. If they will sponsor the visa, do we have to submit bank details po? I'm worried kasi we don't have enough savings now due to personal reasons but I have travelled na din po to several asian countries including japan. And if walang bank certificate may chance po kaya ma approve yung visa?
