Happy 2019 sa lahat! New update lang... we are planning to revamp the site in the 1st - 2nd quarter of this year, time to change the very old look ng site. Salamat sa lahat ng support, especially sa mga loyal na bumabalik at moderator na walang sawang sumusuporta sa site.

Boyfriend or Fiance?

What's Hot

Hi guys. It's my first time applying for a Visitor visa. My trip is supposedly sponsored by my significant other who is a permanent resident. We consider ourselves fiance and fiancee since we plan to get married eventually. But I've read here and there that you need to submit additional documents for fiance's? I would've easily placed him as a 'Boyfriend' in the application, but there is no option for such.

So then, what documents would we need to provide alongside this fiance/fiancee sponsor status? And if we couldn't, then what to do if Boyfriend/girlfriend status isn't in the options?

    @janellaibay If you are applying for a regular TV600, there is no official sponsorship form that you Fiance' will submit. He can just write an invitation letter outlining your trip, providing accomodation, shoulder the expenses etc. If you are applying for a sponsored TV600( Im not sure if a fiance' is qualified under this category), you and him have to fillup a sponsorship form that can be downloded from the homeaffairs website. He might be then required to pay a bond($5000-$15000).

    @fgs I understand. I've read something about the bond as well. But I don't think we need to go there, especially that I can't even tell the difference between the two.

    I've been reading about a 'Statutory Declaration' document in this forum, which is basically the invitation letter you're talking about, but on a more 'legitimized' level as it's notarized and all. Do you know anything about it? And is this required instead of just a regular invitation letter? I'm so confused lol

    Found it in a document checklist:
    If a friend/relative in Australia is paying for your visit then a Statutory Declaration stating the relative or friend’s support and evidence of their financial capacity to do so – for example a letter of invitation, bank statements and tax documents.
    thank you so much!

    @janellaibay for a regular 600 visa (valid for up to three, six or 12 months), i can't remember a form used specifically for a partner if you are being sponsored. I only remember using a stat dec. that's 2yrs ago.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
