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.

    Follow up question lang po.. ano po kaya best na ilagay sa tanong na to?

    "Give details of how the stay in Australia will be funded."

    "Self-funded" or "supported by other person"?

    Would it be more convincing kung self-funded ilagay nya since we're just still in a gf/bf (engaged) status, or better yet state state already that I will be the one to sponsor for all her expenses here(accomodation, food, etc)?

    Tia.

    @viperazor if the big chunk of the cost in staying will be supported put supported by other person. Make sure it will be supported by documents such as your proof of funds that you have enough to support. then attach din proof of funds nya or CC if any para support sa part na I shoulder nyang expenses.

    Hi, we plan to apply for tourist visa as a family with my 2 kids (7 and 1 y/o). Do we have to file separate application and pay separately as well?

    Thanks in advance.

    hi mga kabayan. I just want to ask everyone who has applied for tourist visa online, yung scanned documents po ba na i-upload ko kailangan ko pa ipacertify as true copy kahit original scanned documents naman ang iscan at iattach ko sa application? Anong experience nyo regarding this? Naguluhan kasi ako when I checked online it says attached certified copy of docs, so kahit original docs pa yung iscan ko at iattach as evidence to my application kailangan ko pa din ipacertify? Salamat ng marami!

    @JP1 yup. pwede yun. kung nasa aus tito/tita mo, they can invite you to australia. need lang ng tita at tito mo na magprovide ng financial docs to prove na they are capable of paying for your expenses while your in Aus as well as letter of invitation.

    how is your travel history? If they can see na nagtratravel ka talaga regularly, usually malaki ang chance maapprove.
  • hopefullyhopefully Quezon CityPosts: 82Member
    @Xiaomau82 ., yun nga po di ko naibigay na required document Sir, wala pa ako travel history., Pinadalhan po ako HAP ID., kailangan ko ba mag-organize ng medical? Ang status po ng application ko ay submitted palang., kalian ba magsisimula ang bilang hanggang ma-approve?

    paki check under correspondences kung may instructions ung case officer about medical. normally indi sia required unless un nga nag declare ka ng sakit na nakaflag sa australia side gaya ng pneumonia, tb, hepatitis etc.

    @prcand ., nakasaad po naman dun na kailangan mag-undergo ng medical., katatapos ko lang pa-medical kahapon., 6k sa may Makati.
  • hopefullyhopefully Quezon CityPosts: 82Member
    @Xiaomau82., nakasaad naman po na kailangan ko daw mag-undergo., puro "no" din naman po sagot ko sa health declaration., Kailangan ba dapat hintayin muna direction ng case officer? Hanggang ngayon received palang naman po ang status ng application ko.
  • prcandprcand SydneyPosts: 493Member
    @hopefully inapply ko kapatid ko online. ung sa main page for docs submission, walang folder for medical. pero nung nag-apply ko ng 189 (PR) visa meron. though may link for meds sa left pane outside of the main folder ng docs submission, i don't think necessary si meds exam for tourist, unless more than one year plano mo mag stay.
