    Hi @Pam Pilapil
    Were you permanently employed when you were approved? Can you tell me a lil bout your supporting docs? I have quit my job to spend the holidays overseas last year since hindi ako pinayagan magleave ng company ko.
    I wanted to find out if a job offer be enough incentive to return? I have no assets under my name yet.
    My current bank account has only enough for pocket money. no credit card. It's my bf who is an Australian that is going to sponsor my trip.
  • Pam PilapilPam Pilapil cebu, philippinesPosts: 10Member
    Hello!
    Ganito kasi yon, ni lodge namin Yong application Jan 13. Naka attach na sa docs namin Yong job contract ko stating na my contract will be up to Jan 15. Fortunately, by Jan 17, na approve na Yong visa for multiple entry pa, good for a year. So there, to answer your question, I don't have a permanent job na at that time kasi galing na din ako sa Oz last Sept 13, nag vacay lang ako for 16 days. Then went home, looked for another temporary job, then applied for another visa at eto, na approvan ng multiple entry.
    From what I heard, having a job there isn't the only thing they're basing at, so long as your sponsor have enough money to support you during your stay, then they will surely approve it. Na worry kasi ako non baka kasi Yong temporary job ko ang basis nila pag ma dedeny ang application ko, pero Sabi nong kaibigan kong Pinay, may kilala daw siya na Pinay na walang trabaho Jan, na naka Puna rin dito..

    @lhanz23
    Hi lhanz23, to share my experience with you, the agent who processed my visitor visa (business stream tho) advised me to have at least aud5000 in my bank account. BF, has of course much larger amount than mine.. hope that helps

    @berry1430
    Senxa, Hindi po ako via Mnl, Ceb-SG-Perth po ako. Wala naman silang supporting documents na hinanap sa kin. 1st visit ko last 13 Sept 2016 ai Hindi rin cla nag ask, pro I assume they have the records na. Also I just showed the printed letter lang from immigration. It's my 3rd visit na and so far so good.
    PS: if youre on tourist visa, make sure may return ticket ka.
  • Pam PilapilPam Pilapil cebu, philippinesPosts: 10Member
    @lhanz23 senxa po, wala po akong Alam magkano dapat ang pera ng sponsor, ang sponsor ko kasi ai Australian, he owns his house, with 2 cars and currently employed as mI Ning engineer / manager. Hindi po rin xa nag disclose sa kin magkano ang pera nia sa bank nia.

    @Pam Pilapil hi, how bout if hung mag sponsor po is less than $10 ung Pera sa bank? pero regularly sumasahod naman sya?
  • cnzdlnycnzdlny Philippines Posts: 14Member
    Hello po. Question Lang po if my boyfriend will invite me?
    Ako po ba dapat mag apply visa using my immiaccount login? Or does my boyfriend need to have his own immiaccount login and apply to invite me??
    Ano po ba dapat?
    Thanks po in advance
  • cuccicucci NSWPosts: 785Member
    @cnzdlny I suppose this is for Visitor visa? Whether kaninong immi account ang gagamitin, it does not really matter. Of course para may full control ka sa application mo, much better kung may sarili kang account. Yung invitation letter naman can be uploaded from anywhere so pwede mong bigay ang username and password mo sa kanya or email nya sayo ang letter at ikaw mag upload.

    Yes po visitors visa po.
    Naiisip ko po kasi kay bf pa invite if possible para mabigyan sana multiple entry. Though nahihiya po ako magsabi sa kanya kasi for the last time I visit , invite po ng kapatid ko Yun.

    Ayoko na din po kasi pa invite sa ate ko kasi nag submit na sya application for my mum ei.

    Otherwise I’ll do it on my own. I just want to know how much minimum fund I should have. Para po ma approve tourist visa ko na Hindi invite ng kapatid or ni bf?

    (Just want to show that I’m capable po hehe)

    Salamat po ng madame
  • cuccicucci NSWPosts: 785Member
    @cnzdlny Since you've been to Au already and complied with the terms of your visa... I don't see any problem with being granted better terms like multiple entry. Now for the "show money" that's really arbitrary. Unlike Schengen countries Au does not advertise a minimum amount. Perhaps matching your intended itenerary and activities to your funds would suffice.

    I think you have a good chance of getting an AU visa as long as you have a good amount of money in your bank. Everything is done online so you don't have to worry that much.
  • suntanlinesuntanline SydneyPosts: 38Member
    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 March, 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!
