    Good evening! Ask ko lang po yung aunt and cousin ko po ang tourist visa nila na approved ng June 2019 then nag tour sila ng July 2019 for 1 month so used na po yung visa. Ang question ko pwede na ba mag apply ulit ng tourist visa since nagamit na nila yung unang visa na valid for 6 months. Plan po nila mag travel ulit ngayong end of October 2019. Magaaply pa lang ng tourist visa ngayong Sept. Thanks po!

    Hi guys...

    I am on 482 working visa. Iaapply ko parents ko ng tourist and magpprovide ako ng invitation stating na I will shoulder all of ther expenses. Ask ko lang yung mother ko may laman bank statement and sknya nakapagalan pati land title. Pero yung dad ko wlang laman own bank statement nya. Kailangan ba ipajoint ung bank statement ng mom ko sknya? Wla kasi ako maiattach sakanya. Though iaattach ko din naman bank statement and payslips ko. Thank you po sa sasagot.

  • batmanbatman Darwin AustraliaPosts: 3,439Member, Moderator

    No need na ipa joint. Parents mo naman. Attached ka lang proof na mag asawa sila. Tsaka ikaw nmn susupport.

  • TokyoTokyo PHPosts: 11Member

    hi guys! good day all. ask ko lang po sana if pwede po ba maka re apply ng tourist visa kahit sa second application ko is hindi na ako employed?

    planning to resign on my work to maximize the 3 months visa granted while waiting for our Prospective Marriage Visa Offshore

    I am sure na matagal tagal ba ang approval ng PMV, but just want to grab the chance and just re apply again once back from AU after 3 months stay.

    Thank you po.

  • TokyoTokyo PHPosts: 11Member

    just a continuation on my previous comment po, okay lang po ba na ilagay namin sa cover letter ng fiance ko if mag re apply kami ng tourist visa, "to spend time with fiancee while waiting for the prospective marriage visa to be approved" kahit wala na po akong work?

    thank you po

    Oh... so mukhang nasa queue pa talaga ako. Is there any indication that it is already "In Progress" prior to the grant? Or Received then Granted na agad ang status sa Immi?

    Bit worried kasi 4 kami na babayahe and last week meron na sila at same date lang kami nagsubmit. Ako na lang ang wala pa.

    @herlipstickstain - 🤞 Please let us know once you get your visa. Feeling really anxious because our trip will be this weekend...

  • Yes, i’ll update here. I feel the same way, every minute ata ako nagche-check kung may email na haha. They said it’s faster when you lodged online but I guess holiday season is approaching din kasi kaya super tagal.

    @Oct1981 nag apply ba kayo as group? We applied as group (family kami) and sabay sabay kami naapprove although 3 samin ME and 2 samin single entry. If not applied as group, did you mention the others as traveling companions in your application?

    Got our grant in 9 days. Was stalking our immi acct din even though I was expecting a longer wait, marami kasi dito nauna pa samin. Around 3-4pm I checked and Received status pa sya. Checked immi again ng 6pm (hobby ko sya icheck haha) and granted na agad. So di ko na sya nakita na "In Progress".

    Not sure if nilalagay sya in progress status or only kapag naghihintay nalang sila sayo ng additional docs that they request from you.

  • jd_jd_ Posts: 11Member

    ^ Hobby ko sya icheck pero I just remembered I got an email pala ng around 6pm that's why I checked again so soon. Para macheck ung sa ibang applicants kasi kanya kanyang email nag send ang grant

    Medyo special case kasi yung sayo and regular tourist visa lang ang mga inaapply ng nasa thread na to. So less ang may experience makasagot ng question mo.

    Naapply nyo na ba yung PMV? May agent ba kayo for this? I think mas masasagot ka ng agent na mas alam ang case na ganito. Or if you want to canvas for experience ng ibang tao dito (if meron), then maybe create a new thread para wag matabunan ung question mo siguro

  • alexamaealexamae SydneyPosts: 877Member

    Okay, I'll update as soon as I get an approval. It's for my brother-in-law. :)
