    Hello po, i just read this while backtracking posts here...if hindi naman po mag claim ng points ang husband ko sa Work experience ko as Dependent lng sa visa, is it okay na need not to upload any evidence right? :) Thanks in adv for your thoughts. @kenshusei @mistakenidentity
    @mistakenidentity you have to upload din. kasi diba nung nagfill up ka sa evisa application inindicate mo din yung employment history ni misis, so need mo iupload yung evidence for that. Her COE (in any format) alone will suffice; pero pwede mo din siguro isama ilang payslips nya for additional evidence

    @araead same tayo situation. it has been about a month since we completed our medicals. Completed naman nakalagay sa My Health kaso sa visa application meron pa rin -

    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.

    I did the medicals prior the lodgement of visa to save time. I guess hintay na lang siguro ako sa CO. I just made sure na yung My Health Declaration with the Completed status ang na-upload ko sa evidence of health.

    @rukiasan, just my 2 cents.
    Generally, you only upload evidences to support the points you are claiming.
    In my case, I just uploaded my husband's (secondary applicant) certificate of english instruction from his college and his TOR (since he already had it and as support to the certificate) so we dint have to pay addtl charges.

    @rukiasan tama po c @ForeverBeautyAddict at based na rin sa mga nabasa ko na past posts ng mga members dito. Baka nagpapabagal din sa CO pag marami docs e-rereview nya.
    Kaya for secondary applicants and you are not claiming points for them, it would be good na certificate of english instruction from his college and his TOR/Diploma lng ang e-uupload mo ;)
