How to Apply Online for an Australian Tourist Visa - Step 4

edited February 2016 in Visitor - Tourist Visa
continuation from http://pinoyau.info/discussion/5998/how-to-apply-online-for-an-australian-tourist-visa-step-by-step

4. Pay the Application Fee and Submit
Prior to November 20, 2015, applicants need to pay first before they can attach documents. Now, you first need to complete documents before paying and submitting. The fee for a subclass 600 Visitor Visa is Php 4500 (AUD 135). Payment for online application is through card only. You can either use credit card or debit Visa card. Since I do not have a credit card, I asked a friend to let me use her card. And that’s totally fine.

    Hello everyone. My husband paid for my tourist visa application online through his credit card but he didnt use an immi account. He said he used the official website and he was given a payment receipt. Problem is I have set up an immi account and will proceed to payment after uploading all documents. How do i use my husband's payment reference? Did we do it right? Should we have paid for it through immi account instead? Could you please offer me solutions or options on how to use his payment for my application.

    Another query, if i choose to mail my application instead, is there an authorized courier service that i can use to send my application? Could you please tell me the steps on how to lodge my application via courier.

    Thanks so much in advance for your replies.

    @Mrsbilly afaik, if you are using immi account, you have to pay after submitting. Your husband paid using the official website? I am guessing it is the immiaccount website, kasi dun lang pwede magbayad. Unless it is not official or through a third party website like vfs. Maybe you can share more information about this. very rare na ng nagaapply ng TV na paper based.

    @se29m HI, therefore, magbabayad kalang po after mo ma.upload lahat ng documents? credit card, automatic na po yun and wait nalang for the visa grant? thank you.

    paano po kung family kami? dapat po ba isa isa ang immi account? and isa isa din ang documents? like bank certificate/statement? paano po kaya namen magagawang group application yun? para aware po ang embassy na we're family magvisit sa australia. thank you so much!!! :)

    @Shyluck what i did is paid first before upload documents.. di ko lang sure na pero may narinig na ako na nag upload docs before paying.. you will need to do biometrics after lodging usually sa vfs..

    ang pagkakaalam ko is individual application sa immiaccount kahit family, pero sa loob ng immiaccount, tatanungin yata kung in a group or individual...

    @Shyluck hi, same question tayo if individual ba yung immi account pag online TV application especially na 2 minors ang kids ko. Makikibalita na lang ako sayo just in case mauna ka. Mga June pa kasi kami mag apply since October pa planned travel namin. :) :)

    Moving on...
    God has bigger plans for me than what I have for myself...

    @examiner30 @Shyluck Guys, found this advise from other thread:
    @Xiaomau82 yup nsa pinas.. pde ba apply na nmin sya khit ala pa kme AU?
    yes pwede but u will be required to provide evidence of financial capability since kayo ang sponsor nia. u can use the sme IMMIAccount na ginamit mo for your application. select mo lang yung create new application.

    Hii. Newbie here. Need help regarding the application of a visitorvisa business stream for a bp program in sydney. Do i need to certify all documents attached upon application online?
  • snuffboxsnuffbox pampangaPosts: 30Member
    @jannishglitz no need to certify it. Just a colored scan will do.
  • jannishglitzjannishglitz PhilippinesPosts: 4Member
    @snuffbox thank you for the info. How about regarding the tor, rle, cv/resume diploma and other docs that are school related is it necessary to attach it also??
  • snuffboxsnuffbox pampangaPosts: 30Member
    edited March 2019
    @jannishglitz Never tried to apply for business stream. I think, mas valuable yung merong kang work and your just there for the bridging course. But scan the whole steps here. I know maam @Filaussiephy posted a blog about the process.
