    hi. just want to share my experience.

    May 19 - arrived in Perth
    May 20 - met with migration agent
    May 23 - got CoC from school (VET IT course)
    June 9 - Visa lodged on shore
    July 1 - started attending classes
    July 31 - Medical exams
    August 2 - Visa granted!

    background story:

    been trying to apply for student visa way back 2013
    discouraged kc ang laki ng show money
    still have no money to show now pero ginamit ko lang PAYG certificate
    ng tatay ko na PR sa Regional area dito sa aus.
    Im almost 40 when i lodged my application
    finished college in 10 years (Computer Engineering)
    wasted many years sa jobs n wlang kinalamn sa course ko
    my recent job wala kinalaman sa course na inaaral ko (Construction)

    ** the important lesson i learned:**
    Hindi kailangan ng show money
    if a relative or your mom or dad in australia is willing to sponsor you
    earning at least AUD60000/year.
    but immigration rules changes ALL the time. sometimes changes will be in your
    favor. always check

    I'm now on the process of applying for a student visa. Anyone here that's familiar with the Cohort Go Payment? I saw that they offer cheaper exchange rate and I can pay in peso din which makes it very convenient. With my agency, I could pay my OSHC via Cohort Go and when tried so, they gave me their local bank details din. Now I'm wondering how I should pay it, local branch lang kasi ng ANZ bank yung meron eh and I don't have an ANZ account yet. Can't figure out naman how to transfer online since most PH banks don't have ANZ bank sa bank-to-bank transfer nila. Is the only option OTC payment lang talaga? I'm living in Laguna and Makati pa yung bank branch. Hope someone could help me about this. Thanks!.

    hello po.. tanong ko lang po ... since almost 40 na po kayo, how do you plan to attain PR? kasi po yung asawa ko, 40 na po siya this year ... we're really contemplating on a student visa kaso baka kapusin kami sa time para makapag PR knowing na hanggang 45 lang pwede mag-apply ... gusto lang po namin i-weigh yung options namin if AU is really right for us.

    Hello folks, Has anyone here experienced to extend their student visa? I'm in my final year and need to extend bec of late student placement. Do I need to submit all those documents as if I'm applying a fresh student visa like funds, english test, etc.? Thanks very much.

    Hi.. Have anyone experience receiving COE after 2 weeks from payment? I already paid the school and the insurance last month but until now I haven't receive the COE yet. The agent told me it will take 2 weeks to get the COE.

  • reginalovereginalove CebuPosts: 32Member
    Hi, this happened to me too. I actually asked my aussie boyfriend to call the institution instead and found out hindi pa pala nabayad ng agency. Not sure if it’s the same case as yours ha. Agency told me then that it was because hindi pa daw na clear ng bank kasi the bank requested more documents due to its big amount and international pa. I’m really not sure if it was true or not din hehe cuz I know nothing about that stuff. Anyway, my best advice is to try checking if your school can be contacted online? Kasi I also got to talk to them using their chatbox on their website or maybe even facebook? After they got my payment kasi, we got the COE within 2 days lng. Hope this helps. :)

    Of course, you can bring your spouse. Hindi naman tinitignan kung anong level of education nya.
    Required din sya mag medicals and pay visa fee. I think 50% of the amount of your visa fee yung kanya. Double check mo pa rin.

    Depende kung anong pag-aaralan mo, but ang dependent ay 20hrs kapag Bachelors degree and below ang working rights nila per week, same sa primary student applicant.

    Pag Masters and above level, full working rights ang partner.

    Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

    Hi I would like to ask kung okay lang maglodge ng student visa then magtake ng training program/course that lasts less than a year then pagkatapos maglodge ng PR application? Please enlighten me sa procedure. Thanks

  • reginalovereginalove CebuPosts: 32Member
    Guys, need advice. Pwede bang tumawag regarding sa status ng visa sa dibp even if I have an agent?
  • jacqbrionsjacqbrions PHPosts: 16Member

    Can someone enlighten me po.

    I was filling out the Health Declarations Form pero nagkamali ako ng nalagay sa Birth Place ko and "No" yung na-answer ko sa Health Declarations about being a trainee sa childhood centre, dapat po pala "Yes" nalagay ko dun since ECEC course ko and na-submit ko na yung form and nag-generate na rin ng Referral Letter. My agent told me that it's okay and just "Delete" it and do it again pero nung ginawa ko na, nakalagay na is it will just be removed sa ImmiAccount ko but my application is still there and if I wish to withdraw, I need to fill out the Withdrawal Form (1446) pero yung options dun is for visa applications lang (which is hindi ko pa nagagawa) and not for Health Declarations Form. Will this affect my Student Visa application once gawin ko na sya? Super worried po ako tho hindi pa naman ako nakakapagpamedical plan ko pa next week. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.

    @jacqbrions If you haven't done medicals yet, you can still make corrections during the medical exams. Just inform the person who will be taking your details that you intend to make corrections.

    Thank you for your response. Since my agent told me to just remove it and create a new health declarations form with the correct info, I did so na po. Do you think that's fine po? Will it affect my SV by doing that? Altho I alr asked my agent about it I want to hear the thoughts din po ng iba para ma-lessen din worries ko.

  • cuccicucci NSWPosts: 882Member

    @jacqbrions That would still be ok. Just be sure to bring along the new document with proper HAP ID when you do medicals.
