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.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

    denied ung sa gf ko yuki, reason is d nakapagprovide ng close family ties, kc di namention ni mama ung family members nya in philippines. :( panu pa maprepresent un :(
  • YukishihYukishih MelbournePosts: 430Member
    Ha? Kelan nya nakuha? Ang gawin nya gawa sya letter tapos sabihin nya andyan family nya sa Pilipinas and if may work sya sabihin din nya na kailangan nya umuwi. Kailangan nya iprove ang strong ties nya dyan. Tapos pagawan ng letter ang parents nya na iallow sya magbakasyon dito for few days and that she is expected to come home after 2 weeks blah blah blah. Ganun. Puede pa naman apply ulit.

    Gawa ka lang immiaccount nya. Yung docs nya from pinas ipascan mo at isend syo. Lahat ng documents upload mo lang online. http://www.immi.gov.au/Services/Pages/immiaccount-register.aspx. Gagawa sya ng letter at parents nya ha to prove her strong ties na babalik sya ng pinas. Provide employment cert sa Pinas, payslips nya, bank cert na din nya. May viber ka ba?

    @Yukishih congrats sa approval ng boys mo. :)

    Tanong ko lang din sis, I am in the process of submitting the visa application of my mom in law, we plan to let her stay for a year kasi sya mag aalaga sa anak ko. Dun sa Health insurance section, pwede na ba ilagay dun yung details ng health insurance provider na balak namin kunin kahit hindi pa namin nabayaran? I read pag abot ng 1 year kailangan may travel insurance.

    I think she's around 62 years old. I am not sure about the restrictions kase sinabi nya lang yung multiple entry for 1 year and max 3 months stay. Yes I only put 3 months stay in the stat dec. Good thing they gave her a multiple entry. Maybe because of her age and history of travel.

    Hi. I lodged my visit visa application via VFS Global last 8 Oct 2014 and i got an acknowledgement text and email form VFS on 9 Oct saying that my visa application is already received at Australian Embassy until now waiting pa din ako.... well, they say 30 days max time of processing so still sounds ok though wen i lodged thru VIA Center dati mabilis lng in 2 weeks i got the result na... ask ko lang sa mga naka receive na gaano katagal if nagtext sila na nasa courier to deliver? It's my first time kasi to lodge thru VFS Global. Thanks so much... Good luck to all of us those who are still waiting.
