    @MLBS Mainly GTE po. Also, we found out that the agent only submitted passport copy, GTE, COE and health insurance. No other supporting documents were attached to the application.

    @MLBS circumstances in home country, value of the course and migration history - was in australia early this year for vacation and came back this September to pursue studies - inadvise po kami na pumunta na lang dahil mas madali daw kasi kapag nagapply onshore than offshore. Wrote own GTE and iedit na lng daw ng migration agent pero for some reason hindi din naedit. Ending hindi naconvince si CO. =( if ever po ba mag appeal and icontinue ang studies, would it give better chances to be approved?

    @mevof ano po agency nyo? Ano po advise ng agent nyo regarding refusal? Try aecc global po. Theyre offering free consultation. Although not sure if kaya nila mag ayos ng appeal or you need to restart and submit another application through their agency. Same situation po tayo na on 2nd visit nag apply onshore and nagrant naman po yung sakin. Although it took a month para magrant

    @sydney_sydney Noted. Thank you thank you. Masaya ako para sa iyo.

    I chose to seek advise from a migration lawyer instead. Free consultation din. Hehe and ang sinabi, if appeal tapos tuloy tuloy na aral, i will have better chances of winning. Chos. -na maapprove un student visa OR reapply but i have to go back home kasi hindi pwede onshore reapplication.

    Sana meron makapagshare na narefuse ang student visa nia tapos naoverturn nun nag-appeal para magkaron ako ng idea at pag-asa.

    May nakausap din ako before na agent, nasa Au sya. Sabi nya malaki daw chance ng approval kung onshore tapos wala pa daw syang applicant na narefuse na onshore kahit pa daw hindi related sa previous studies/work mo ang course na kukunin. Medyo too good to be true kaya d ako naniwala. Ano opinion nyo dito guys?
  • sydney_sydneysydney_sydney Ph
    Member
    @mevof Why not risk nyo na po iappeal onshore since andito na rin lang po kayo. Try to consult more than one agency po, wala naman pong masama hehe. Ang alam ko po as long as maprove/ masagot nyo lahat ng nasa gte reasons of refusal mukang wala naman pong magiging problema. Best of luck po sainyo:)

    @VegeMate ako po siguro ang isang example nyan hehehe. Unrelated education and work background sa kinuhang course. Kakagraduate ko lang po last june 2017 tapos andito po lahat ng siblings ko sa au, parent ko lang nasa pinas. Applied on shore on second visit :) not really sure lang po kung how true na malaki chance of approval, i guess nasa gte content po talaga nakasalalay.

    @sydney_sydney Wow! Pwede pong pabulong kung ano agency nyo dyan? Hehe! I've been to Au na din. Sa tingin nyo naging factor din sya sa approval since parang proof sya na babalik ka sa pinas after ng studies? Hiningan ka din po ba ng show money kahit onshore? Sakto din kasi tumingin ako online ng ticket prices for next year, sobrang mura ng ticket sa cebupac haha. Wala pang 10k one way.

    @VegeMate hi san po kayo sa aus? I can refer you po sa agent ko, from AECC Sydney sya nakabase. Sa tingin ko po yung pag apply on shore is not a big factor of approval, more of an advantage lang din po siguro para sayo na makakapagstay and study ka na while waiting for approval and also pwede syang iappeal if incase narefuse unlike offshore na no choice ka but to reapply. Ang advice ko lang po is magpamedical na kayo jan if nagpplan kayo mag apply onshore para makamura kayo hehe. For me talaga yung sa gte content po ang pinakamahalaga and good thing sa aecc nagbibigay sila ng format / questions you need to answer on your essay para talaga masagot lahat ng pwedeng ibato sayo ng immigration.

    @VegeMate regarding show money po, pinaghanda lang po ako just in case hingin ng immig and tinanong lang kung magkano amount ng bank account na magsupport. Di na po ata nirerequire ang showmoney for ph passport holders regardless kung onshore or offshore. Not really sure about that pero in the end di po ako hiningan ng bank statement.

    @sydney_sydney sa brisbane po ako. So medyo mabulaklak din lang siguro magsalita yung agent na nakausap ko dati, parang too good to be true din nga kasi mga sinabi nya kesho 100% approval nya pag onshore tapos kahit anong course hehe. Kung kayo sa tingin nyo worth it po ba na onshore maglodge o kahit dito na lang sa pinas? Ok din agency nyo po kasi tinulungan talaga kayo sa pagaaply. Ah d na kayo hiningan ng show money. Uni po ba kayo nagaaral?
  • sydney_sydneysydney_sydney Ph

    @VegeMate di po ako naniniwala na 100% approval pag onshore kasi i think case to case basis naman yon. And may kilala rin akong nareject. For me worth it naman mag onshore kasi yun talaga gusto ko i mean magstay na dito since andito mga kapatid ko, pero if wala po kayong pupuntahan sa brisbane na kakilala and willing mag shoulder/magsupport sainyo while waiting for visa approval i suggest na mag offshore nalang po kayo, kasi while you are waiting for approval di ka naman pwede mag work, unless mas cash on hand ka pero very risky since nakalodge ka ng visa for approval. Nope di po ako uni :)

    @VegeMate kung ang concern nyo po is kung malaki impact ng onshore application sa approval, no po. Sa gte/sop po talaga and supporting docs nakasalalay.
  • VegeMateVegeMate Cavite
    Member
    @sydney_sydney oo yun yung pinapalabas nya na pag onshore daw po parang sure approved. Nagtaka nga din ako kasi kung ganon e d lahat ng gustong magstudent visa pupunta muna ng Au tapos don maglodge kasi sure pala pag don. Kung sa tingin nyo po kung wala masyadong impact pag onshore, mas mabuti nga kung dito na lang sa pinas maglodge. Sa tafe po kayo or college nagaaral? Certificate course po kinukuha nyo?

    @VegeMate cert 3 and dip po but not tafe :)
  • leadmeleadme Member
    @VegeMate question lang, may chance pala na mag appeal ang refused student visa? May kakilala kasi ako na sa may clause/condition sa refused letter nya stating na no appeal.
