  • @Captain_A said: can you also share your document checklist please. thanks Konti lang actually: * Birth cert * Driver license * Current passport * Passport on 1st arrival * Form 1195 * Endorsed photo Tsaka gumawa kami ng lis…
  • @engineer20 said: @seestra congratulations! Tenkyu!
  • @Captain_A said: oh nice tip, ung middle name (second name for pinoys) is initial lang nakalagay sa Driver's license pero complete nmn sa passport eg. full name is john paul cruz, sa DL its john p cruz issue ba yan kahit sa pass…
  • @J_Oz said: Wow congrats!!! I just received my EOI for virtual ceremony yesterday so am now waiting again for the actual invite ... Was hoping face to face ceremony will be on soon, but doesn't look like it especially for councils near the m…
  • @Captain_A said: congrats, saang council nagfacilitate ng virtual ceremony mo? Thanks! Not sure kung council pa rin ang nag-facilitate since the email was from Department of Home Affairs, but we're under Logan City Council in QLD.
  • @J_Oz said: Kamusta mga waiting for ceremony dyan, or kung may mga nakapag virtual ceremony na rin. May movement na ba ang mga mag tetest/interview pa lang? Update lang on our citizenship journey, para makapag-encourage kahit pano sa mga …
  • I am very happy to share the timeline ng citizenship application namin! Maraming maraming salamat sa forum na to for the tips. Good luck sa lahat ng naghihintay pa. Date applied: 12 September 2019 Interview & test appointment letter received…
  • Logan city council. Wow ang bilis a! @fgs said: @seestra said: Thanks @fgs & @epiboy99 ! Atat lang hehe. Anong suburb ka? Ipswich ako..yong pamangkin ko Apr 30 nagapply nabigyan ng test date Mid Aug for Nov…
  • Thanks @fgs & @epiboy99 ! Atat lang hehe.
  • Hello! my partner & I submitted our citizenship application 6 days ago, and sobrang pigil ko sa sarili ko na i-check ang status everyday kaya every other day na lang haha! So sa inip ko, I've been reviewing what we've submitted and napaisip ako…
  • @Yvettei What you can do is to prepare a statutory declaration stating that the 2 names are one and the same person & have it signed by a JP. Nakatulong yan samin ng partner ko nung nahabaan siguro sa name nya & di nilagay yung middle name s…
  • @epiboy99 thanks so much sa reply! (1) Sige, I will just try my best to decipher yung Local Registrar No. Anyways, I will attach a copy naman so they can verify. (2) Dun sa section ng Full birth certificate details, may 3 dates na hinihingi -…
  • Hayyy... parang kailan lang, my partner & I were scouring this forum for tips about Visa 189 application. & now, citizenship application naman. Woohoo! Akalain mo yun?! May mga tanong lang po ako sa mga nag-submit ng application via Im…
  • @hersheythegreat Hmmm... I’m not in the position to say. I can only base on my experience, friends’ & maybe a few others na nabasa ko dito. Ang masasabi ko lang is COs are usually logical sa pag-assess. As long as you provide the documents requi…
  • @wittygem You’re very welcome! Good luck!
  • @hersheythegreat Check mo sa site ng university na aapplyan mo kung meron silang student accommodation. That's usually cheaper than outside, plus less expenses pa sa transpo since nasa uni ka na nakatira. You'll have to share facilities nga lang w…
  • @hersheythegreat Yup, there's always that risk of course. But if you provide everything that's required, in an organised manner, I think malaki naman chance na ma-approve. Marami nang naging successful na visa applications with de facto partner. …
  • @hersheythegreat I agree with @agentKams with everything listed. & same here, we provided a joint statement ng "lab story" namin kumbaga hehe. As in detailing how we met, how we spend time together, trips together with family & friends, sa…
  • Hi all, I just came across this site. Might be useful for job hunters out there who are interested in taking the apprenticeship pathway. https://www.aapathways.com.au/ Cheers!
  • I don't think you need to register your relationship for the purpose you mentioned. The government will still recognise your de facto relationship as long as you can meet the requirements stated in https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/about/corporate/inf…
  • @shyla20 https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/about/corporate/information/fact-sheets/35relationship
  • @hersheythegreat Yup, approved naman. I guess the agent is playing it safe. Just tell him/her na you can only provide a statement from your gf's parents, on top of the statements from friends & workmates na sinabi mo. That should suffice as e…
  • Oh and yes, na-grant naman visa namin.
  • hindi naman requirement na manggaling sa parents ang statement. Pwedeng from other family members or kahit friends. Per the Home Affairs website, evidence may include but is not limited to: Social context, such as: -evidence that the couple is ge…
  • @Hunter_08 You’re welcome & good luck!
  • @Hunter_08 I just did the same for my mom, bro, sis-in-law & nephew. Nag-family reunion kami dito sa Brisbane last month. Using my immi account, isa-isa ko silang finill-upan ng application, created a group to link them & pati na rin sa visa…
  • @rguez06 If I understand you correctly, you're asking if dapat bang makaalis na ang pinsan mo before the "must not arrive after" date, tama ba? Kung ganun nga, the answer is no. Say Jan 2019 sya dumating, there shouldn't be any issue kung umalis s…
  • Feeling nostalgic lang haha! San na kaya ang March 2015 batchmates? Sana lahat ay settled & maayos na ang buhay dito sa Oz
  • @ginpo Marami tayong threads touching the topic on de facto dependents. Here's one: http://pinoyau.info/discussion/828/adding-secondary-applicants-married-de-facto-engaged/p1 As far as I know, requirements remain the same. Have a read & post…
  • Hi! Agree ako kay @momnijosh08 re: training to get oz qualification, kahit short course lang sa TAFE or other RTOs. In my case, yung course na kinuha ko was quite basic & ang laking subsidy from the government so I didn't pay much. Dito sa Qu…
