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.

    question, may friend ako na gusto mag aral sa au. i dont know if i will advise my friend if tumuloy or not. may success stories ba diyan ng student visa tas naging PR eventually? 35 na friend ko. may success story ba na medyo recent, like 2010 onwards? parang hirap ng pinagdadaanan ng mga student visa kasi. ok naman life ng friend ko sa pinas, pero syempre, could be better. wala siya direct path to PR kasi.

    marami kami dito sa forum from student to PR. started our journey 2015, mahirap tlga sa umpisa dahil may condition ang visa. pag 35 medyo risky na, at naghahabol pa ng points but then again iba iba circumstance natin pag andito na sa Australia. ano background ng friend mo?

    @xiaolico marami stories of students na naging PR dito sa AU. Usually, stepping stone lang yung pagiging student to prepare for PR visa. 35 pa lang naman friend mo and pwede naman i-habol yung points sa ibang criteria but of course depende pa din sa profession ng friend mo.

    Consult a well reputed agent. they know the workarounds and will advise you the right things to do. usually, libre lang naman consulting. and it's better to consult na din rather than giving false hopes sa friend mo.

    Hindi po. Dapat kong when nag start yong class mo that's the time na pwedi ka ng mag work. I arrived 4 days before my class so hindi pa me pwedi makahanap ng work unless nagsstart na yong class ko. What to do first is to create TFN, create a bank account, call your OSHC provider if you have your address to live na. Gala muna because if you have work you would have lesser time to gala na. Hahahahahaha.

  • mumofLiammumofLiam SingaporePosts: 32Member

    Hi mga sis / bro. Baka may naka experience sa inyo din neto.

    The last time I checked my immi acct (I think 2-3days ago), nasa "further assessment" na tpos 19 - 48days. Then I checked my account just now, naging 28 - 48days na sya, huhu. Lodged my visa on 11 Feb 2020.

    Salamat sa reply. Wala naman ba naging issue o problema? Kasi plan namin kumuha ng husband ko ng single nalang. May mga nagsasabi kasi na magkakaproblema later on sa billing. May issue na hindi daw icocover ng insurance ung bill kapag couple tpos single policy lng yung kinuha. Dunno how true :#

    hmm alam ko depende po sa insurance provider e. si Bupa mahigpit not sure po sa iba. kaya lumipat kami ng cbhs. pero so far di pa kasi nagcclaim yung partner ko kaya di ko rin masabi kung magkakaproblem kami. pero nakapagpacheckup naman ako and wala naman issue so far.

    Hello po! I just want to ask if there's a chance for me to get a Student Visa if I apply to a non-university institution, specifically New Era Institute? I am planning to process my Student Visa with a help of an agency. It would cost a lot of money po kasi so I'm very skeptical with what I should do first or what steps should I take. I really need an advise po and I would really appreciate it if I can get some advise from you. Congratulations pala sa lahat na na-grant ang student visa! :)
