Biometric Collection in PH

Just saw this announcement. Checking lang if anyone here received request for biometric? If yes, hope you can share the process para may idea lang in the future.

Starting Monday, 4 April 2022, the Australian Government is expanding our Offshore Biometric Collection Program to include the Philippines. The program currently covers 51 countries across the globe.

Visa applicants in the Philippines may receive a letter requiring them to visit an Australian Biometric Collection Centre in Manila or Cebu.

    Baka walang slot. Balita ko ubusan slots ngayon. Last week nag biometrics din parents ko sa Makati, sobrang tagal talaga dahil biglaan lang daw si AU dinagdag sa kanila then isa lang gumagana that time.

    Nag try ako, ok naman. Baka dahil sa IP na gamit mo. Try mo use ng data if mobile ang gamit.

    Pero mukhang walang ng slot as of now for biometrics collection for both Manila and Cebu.

    Hi po has anyone else here from the Philippines been able to book a biometrics appointment lately? I tried to book sa VFS Global but I keep getting a message prompt na "VLN number is already used for another application." I tried even changing the number slightly but still the same error. Went to the biometrics office and told me they can't help me, nakaka frustrate, I don't know what else to do or how to resolve this since this seems to be an issue on their part sa website nila.

    @clim I was able to book just now. I got the same error when I attempted to schedule another date (only to check yung available slots kasi lagpas sa 14-day period schedule ko) for the same VLN. Do you already have an existing booking? If not, baka pwede mo i-take up directly with Immigration and provide proof.

    Hello! I just got my visa granted pero walang ni-require na biometrics for my application. I am worried lang kasi baka kailangan ko pala, tapos wala akong ginawa. I am planning to move 2nd week of July.

    Anyone else who got their visa granted na hindi hiningian ng bioemtrics?

    I would think getting your visa granted would mean all-okay ka na, otherwise they wouldn't have granted it... pero I might be wrong! All the best.
