Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

Query re: Visa Application together with hubby

shaynetotshaynetot MandaluyongPosts: 186Member
Hi guys! I'm a newbie here. I came along this forum when I started googling about filipino accountants working in Australia. I am really interested in working in Australia as an accountant (my current work here in the Philippines is a bank examiner in a GOCC), together with my fiance who is a nurse here in the Philippines, and we both plan to migrate (PR) there when everything's fall into places.

We are planning to get married earlier next year (around May 2015), after which I will take IELTS and apply for 189 Visa for both of us. Is it possible that I'm the only who's going to take IELTS (hopefully, I get a 7 for each component :) ) and yet get both of our 189 Visa approved? I'm a little bit confused din po kasi I read some threads wherein some of the couples are required by the CO to submit the IELTS results of their respective hubbies, while some were not.

Thank you so much po, and looking forward to your replies! More power to this forum!

    Yes yung main applicant lang nman need mag IELTS. unless need mo kumuha ng additional points for spouse. Otherwise, pwede na sa spouse yung certification lang from school registrar na english ang medium of instructions. may format na sila neto

    Tingin ko pwede naman. 457 yata visa for temporary worker. Depende naman yan sa employer at sa qualifications mo and speciality ng skills mo. Though tough talaga na makakuha ng job offer without permanent visa. Kasi sa Australia plang dami na local/pr/ even outside Australia na may permanent visa na pero hirap pa rin makahanap ng work. Pero who knows. The best is get permanent visa first para mas maging madali ang lahat.

    yup. 189 pwede ka tumira and magwork kahit saan parte ng australia without restrictions. 190 naman permanent visa din pero state sponsor may additional 5 points kasi yun pero restricted ka to stay sa sponsoring state for 2 years. Although may mga ibang hindi naman nacomplete ang 2 years requirements for some reasons. Apply ka muna permanent visa at medyo nagkakahigpitan ngaun. Work is just a part of migration and Its a big decision to make. Because if priority mo lang work/ to earn money, then you can choose other countries na may mas malaking financial/ career rewards like hongkong, sg, uk, us, middle east, etc. Goodluck

    hi @shaynetot. take it one at a time. IELTS ka muna while preparing your documents for assessment. after, receiving a positive assessment, sunod-sunod na yan. based sa mga nababasa ka, preferred ng AU employers na nandun ka na. way back then nag try ako mag apply sa seek.com.au, hehe. pero yun nga, required nila na meron ka legal right to work their. hope this helps and God bless. :D

    Don't

    You will be just wasting your time I reckon, save the applying part when you get your visa

    Google for Everything !!!

    No Ma'am. The plan is, look for job 1 month before going to AU. If hindi mag work, then dun na maghahanap. Hopefuly makakita na while dito pa lang.
