    Hintay hintay lang, malapit na rin yan! Pero yung naisip ko nga, nakakadagdag sa delay yung pagupload ng docs na hindi naman necessary. Oras din ng CO yan eh pag tinitignan isa-isa. Delay ng onti para sa lahat ng applicants na irereview niya dapat. Dapat yung tamang docs lang. Just my two cents. ;)

    @bie0110 salamat sa reply. Usually ba yung spouse as dependent, ielts pinapasa nyo as functional english requirement?

    Yung wife ko kase graduate din sa university pero di lahat ng subject sa TOR were in english also yung turo sa university not all in english, magbibigay kaya yung university ng letter na yung medium of instruction is english? And tatanggapin kaya yun ng case officer? Just want to know para kung sakali di na magtake ng ielts si misis.

    Thanks in advance!

    @buyanyan in our case we uploaded a certificate from school that instruction is in english. but then i read from another forum that somehow the CO still requested for proof of functional english even when the school documents eg diploma plus certification had already been submitted. so they took ielts. we did the same. both husband and wife took ielts. non primary applicant only need to get an average score of 4.5 in all the four components

    @bie0110 salamat sa reply. Usually ba yung spouse as dependent, ielts pinapasa nyo as functional english requirement?

    Yung wife ko kase graduate din sa university pero di lahat ng subject sa TOR were in english also yung turo sa university not all in english, magbibigay kaya yung university ng letter na yung medium of instruction is english? And tatanggapin kaya yun ng case officer? Just want to know para kung sakali di na magtake ng ielts si misis.

    Thanks in advance!

    @araead did you check na your emedical account? If you generate the Info sheet makita mo yung status nung each and every exam na tinake mo. Also sa pinakataas nakalagay yung overall status mo. If completed na ang nakasulat:

    "Your eMedical case has been submitted to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). This letter outlines the immigration health examinations that you have completed."

    ** Edited**
    Nakita ko nag My Health declaration ka pala. Baka since wala ka pang CO, di pa talaga siguro maguupdate yung "organize your health" part ng immiaccount mo.

    @araead - tol, ni-check ko ulet immi account ko at mukhang may changes ulet sila:

    Meeting the health requirement
    This person may be required to undergo health examinations as part of this visa application process. The message on this page should continue to be monitored for any updates.

    Note: Updates to health information will not occur until a case officer investigates the person's case in line with published processing times for the visa that has been applied for. There is no need to contact the department at this time concerning this matter.


    ganito rin ba yung sa iyo? Kung ganito rin, I think okay na yata yan. Marami kasing changes sa system nila lately.
