    @moonwitchbleu pwede ata walang family tree. Samen marriage cert lng then birth cert namen n hubby. Proof of relationship din nman yun. Tsaka pwede one year.ispecify m dapat dun pag nag apply n one year ang intended stay. Meron dun itick. Madami nabibigyan ng one year kht first time nag apply. Maluwag sila pag parents
    thanks @kremitz. wala pang passport mama ko kaya hindi pa ako makapag apply.

    try ko i.apply ng 12 months din, hoping ma grant cya. mga kakilala ko na grant naman tourist visa ng parents nila kahit mga first timers, although paper based pa yung application nila.

    Hi to all! ni-attach na namin lahat ng requirements sa immiaccount.. and nagpaschedule na rin si ermats for medical.. medyo confused lang dahil dun sa refferal letter for medical, X-ray lang is required pero sa bottom ng letter, sa may Medical History Info "You have not yet confirmed that your recorded Medical History is true and correct."

    Wala naman akong makitang link to add medical history.. Ganun ba talaga yun? @kremits , @lock_code2004

    Hi Everyone,

    Ask ko lng sana sa inyo,kasi plano namin kunan ng tourist visa yun parents ko :

    Tourism/Visit family or friends or Sponsored Family visit (requires Sponsorship form 1149 ?

    2. Pwede ba kami mag lodge ng two separate app for my mom/dad ng sabay or one at a time?

    @nochipogi

    1. We applied just the visa 600 tourist visa.. It is your choice if you want to apply other visa type.. That would mean more docs required..

    2. Per person ang application form and fee.. In the details you can put the application in one group, so they will be processed together.. Also you can input information na they will travel together if you like..

    I suggest explore the application form online.. Pwde naman i save without submitting/ paying.. So you know what to do..

    Thanks to all who contributed in this thread! I'm glad to inform you all that our Mother's Tourist Visa has been approved! 18 mos multiple entry, maximum stay 12 mos.

    We had doubts before and we were thinking na baka di ma-approve kasi wala pa naman kaming address and work sa AU ni wife dahil wala pa naman kami sa AU. So we're really surprised and thankful.

    here's the letter of invitation we have provided

    RE: VISITOR VISA APPLICATION (TOURIST STREAM) FOR _______

    LETTER OF INVITATION/SUPPORT

    Date: 30 December 2014

    To Whom it may Concern,

    My name is GOREO and I am a holder of Permanent Resident Visa.

    Me, my wife and our 3 year old son are currently residing in UAE and have finally decided to move to Australia for good on June 2015 as we have saved enough by then for starting our new life in Australia.

    I am writing this letter to confirm that I wish to invite my mother, ________ to come with us to Australia for a year in order for us to visit places in Australia and as well as to spend more time with her.

    I undertake to provide accommodation and living expenses for her while she is in Australia. Furthermore I will ensure that she will not engage in any employment activities while in Australia and I guarantee that she will abide by the conditions of her visa.

    The following documents are in the next pages: Bank statement, Passport, Visa Grant Letter.

    I believe that the statements in this declaration are true in every particular.

    @goreo this is very helpful. We are planning to move this June and would want to bring our parents along as tourists if possible.

    Question: As my wife was the primary applicant when we applied PR visa, is it better to use her immi account to apply tourist visa for her in-laws (a.k.a. my parents), then both of us will just sign invitation letter? Or is it better to just create new immi accounts for my parents?
  • goreogoreo Braddon
    Member
    Hi @pa3k_p, actually we created immiaccount for my mother as I don't have an immiaccount and i would suggest that you create a new one for her as well..for us that was successful pero the others were also successful when using their own immiaccount..basta enough yung documents mo and explanation ng situation in the letter of invitation.. good luck..

    Hello po, we are planning to bring our parents here for vacation. My sister and I are both PR (dalawa lang kami magkapatid) here. Do both of us need to provide ang invitation letter or pwedeng isa na lang sa amin? My sister is getting married as well dito sa AU so I'm thinking baka pwedeng sya na lang.

    Also, with regards to bank statement ng parents, wala kasi bank account ang father ko pero may properties and business naman na nakapangalan sa kanya. If we would create a bank account for him, how much po kaya ang kailangan laman ng account?
  • goreogoreo Braddon
    Member
    hi @bluecomet08 , kahit isa lang pwede na yun.. for the amount in the bank, di ko alam if how much ba ang minimum..pero yung sa mother ko meron sya kasing tinatago-tagong pera dun na around 200k..

    @goreo thanks for the reply. Another question: when ang start ng validity ng visa issued to your mom? Post-dated ba since later this year ka pa pupunta sa Oz?

    Then i have other questions pa maybe others can help answer too:

    1. How soon can one reapply for tourist Visa after current one expires?

    2. If may 1 year validity multiple entry visa with max 3 months stay, pagkauwi pa after 3 months pwede bumalik right away to Oz then stay ng another 3 months ulit? Then repeat the cycle until magexpire na visa?

    Thanks in advance!
