    Thats not right. You can take the seminar and you will get the certificate but you will have to go back AFTER visa grant to get the sticker in your passport.
    The question is, do you want to go to the CFO office to do the seminar and get the certificate AND then go back again after visa grant to get the sticker affixed to your passport?

    My apologies if I translated the question incorrectly but I thought Elena asked if she could take the seminar before being granted her visa. So is that what Elena asked? Because if it is then she can take the seminar before being granted the visa. What she cannot get is the CFO sticker in her passport- thats what she will need the visa grant letter for. My facts aren't questionable, my translation from Filipino to English may be but not my facts ;)

    Sa naexperience ko nung nagpunta kami doon, there is a couple na hindi pinatuloy dahil walang grant letter na dala. Nagpa-print pa tuloy sila doon sa isang computer rentals na malapit doon. Pero siguro pwede nga walang grant letter pero mas maige magtanong na lang sa CFO kung pwede.

    From the CFO site (under the heading 'Important Notes:')- You may avail of the Guidance and Counseling Session even while you are still processing or waiting for your visa. If such is the case, you will only be issued the GCC. Once your visa is released, you will return to CFO to continue with your registration. The CFO sticker will then be affixed on your passport.

    @hotshot : my understanding is this particular seminar is for partners of foreign nationals only. The little reading I have done on the CFO site is that there is another, shorter orientation seminar for Filipino immigrants, OFW's etc.

    @orrightfella : i mean, yung sinasabi na pwedeng mag-seminar kahit wala pang visa grant as stated dun sa "Important Notes" sa link na binigay nyo...applicable lang po yata for partners ng foreigners. pero yung seminar na pang mga migrants talaga, nakalagay sa requirements na kelangan ang visa grant letter.

    Hello! I have a concern regarding the CFO seminar. Since I intend to attend the CFO seminar in Cebu this Wednesday 22 May, but I don't have a Visa yet though I have lodged my application already. Is it possible to attend the CFO seminar and just get the GCC? That's how I understand what's written on the CFO site, but I'm quite uncertain. I'm applying for Partner Visa Subclass 309. Please advise. :) Any comments would be much appreciated.

    Think you need a visa first before you undergo any CFO seminar...

    @nfronda Iloilo po. Sa Cebu po ako papa-Medical kasi yun yung malapit at doon rin nagpamedical yung wife ko dati. I was wondering lang if pwede sa Manila kukuha ng sticker kasi naisip ko na baka pwede ko makuha yung sticker the day before my flight if ever. Yun lang po. I just want to know all the possibilities regarding sa pag-attend ng CFO seminar at pagkuha ng sticker. :)

    If I may suggest... You can call directly the CFO office and ask your question.

    They would be in the very best position to answer it. :)

    Last year nag attend ako ng cfo seminar kasi ngpalit ako ng surname gamit ang husband surname. Wala naman problem pero pag kukuha na ng sticker kailabgan na ang visa.

    @jayralvarez, afaik, they give the sticker right away after the seminar. kasi pag nag register ka, nasa kanila na yung passport mo then ibibigay nalang nila after the seminar.

    CFO Seminar and PDOS are one and the same I believe; kailangan mo makakuha nito before you will get your sticker...

    I meant PDOS seminar above...

    Having said that, believe that is sufficient but you still probably need the sticker to be placed. Best to give them a call. First hand info is always best!

    I had a friend na nag initial entry na and hindi sya hinanapan ng sticker, enough na sa immigration ung visa grant letter nun. Pero kumuha na rin ako CFO sticker para walang abala sa immigration in case mahigpit ang natapatan ko.

    Ang taas ng bangketa sa CFO, nahirapan ako magpark kase lowered kotse ko tsk tsk.
