SUBCLASS 500 Updates

What's Hot

Hey everyone!

I hope I'm not the only one who's new to the current visa change.

I lodged my application last July 1 since June30 was the last day for filing Subclass 573. My documents were ready but VFS closed early and the DIBP won't be receiving new applications for 573 anymore. Our agent, IDP, was just as perplexed since the change was relayed on June 30, so stressed kaming lahat. We tried our best to lodge on July 1 for the new visa subclass and we did.

I did my own research and these are what I found out:
- Under the new subclass, all student applicants must lodge online via the ImmiAccount.
- The requirements have been reduced (or increased). These depend on the result of the assessment based on your country of citizenship and the school/uni enrolled in. For more info: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/500-
- Payment has to be made by credit card. I requested a refund from the unused manager's check since online na ang lodging.
- They intend to "finalize 75% of complete student visa applications within one month".
- This might mean (hopefully) na mas mabilis na sya since the report from December 2015 stated na 75% of applications outside Australia "are finalised within 14-90 days."

I attached the necessary documents and paid for the visa online on July 1, 2016.
The results from my medical exams were received by DIBP on July 7, 2016. I tracked this on eMedical Client by typing my last name and HAP ID.
All I can do now is wait and hope for the best.

Hopefully, the results will be faster. Based on my readings on the SVP 573 applications, the visas were granted 14 days after the medicals. Hopefully, I'll get results soon. The waiting game is the challenge.

Please post your timeline and experiences under the new Subclass 500. Let's wish each other the best.

    @kjjarina Master's ang kinuha ko. Swerte at tinanggap ng University. I only consulted with IDP pero actually you can just apply for the visa online on your own. :)

    Check this link to know what documents ang irerequire sayo based on your school/uni and your country.
    https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/500-

    I think if good ang reputation ng education provider, meaning hindi kaduda duda, then lesser documentary requirements.

    Iopen lang nang link then find the Documents Checklist. You simply click on the name of the school plus country of citizenship. Mogawas ra ang required documents list for your visa application. :)

    @leelou I only submitted a notarized financial declaration for my visa. I also attached the CoE from the University. Yun lang. According to the documentary list, di na kailangan ng application ko yung proof of funds and financial ability.

    @vvilladolid1990 I didn't show any amount. I just submitted a notarized declaration that I am capable of funding my studies. Statement lang jud sya. First, you have to check the Documentary Checklist on the Subclass 500 link. It will show there if you still need financial evidence. It my case, it wasn't necessary but I still submitted one in my online application.

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.
