Tourist Visa 600

What's Hot
GaltravellerGaltraveller San Pablo CityTotal Reaction Points: 0Member
Nakapunta na ako ng Au twice on a tourist visa. One in 1995 and last one was 2006. Maganda naman un record ko and I only stayed less than 3 months on both occasions. First time ko mag apply online this 2015 and sa excitement ko na ilodge ko kagad after making payment and did not get all docs uploaded. Ma deny kaya ako? Un record ko nun 95 and 06 makikita naman nila sa system tama po ba? Kinakabahan ako sa katangahan ko :-(

    Hi @fgs I read from another thread that you applied online for the visitor visa. It's been more than a month since I applied too via online. Did you receive any updates from DIBP?

    Nagbabasa basa ako sa forum. Parang ang hirap ata magconvert ng Visit Visa sa Work Visa.. Mas lalo na mahirap mag apply online from Manila looking for a company to sponsor you lalo't na di ka kilala. Pinaka ok ata un Student Visa lalo na ako di ako Skilled Worker. Un nakakatakot lang un expenses ng International Student. May Study Now Pay Later ba sa Aussie?

    @Galtraveller Mahirap tlga to go here at visit visa and convert it as to a working visa. Wala pa kong alam na nagtourist dito then nag apply ng work at company yung nag sponsor ng working visa. Magiging costly kse for the company to sponsor a working visa and also madaming nman PR, temporary resident visa or student visa na andito na, yun nlang ihihire nila. Napaka liit ng chance, unless siguro kung yung skill mo is one of a kind and in demand. Madami nagsstudent visa as yun yung best way, kaso nga lang malaki yung expenses (show money, tuition fee, health insurance, accomodation etc...). About study now pay later here in Australia, they call it HECS here and it is for Australian Citizen only.

    I just rang the immigration office in manila to follow up my sister's tourist visa, they said medyo matagal ngayon mag process ang immigration manila sinasagad na 1 month or more than 1 month madami daw kseng pinoy na nag tourist visa na hindi na bumabalik kaya mas mahigpit sila ngayon. hayyyy...kakainis pati yung mga talagang magtotourist lang at babalik nman nadadamay dahil sa mga ginagawa ng iba.

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.
