    @bachuchay I called +61 131 881. First, i tried using a VOIP service pero hindi nakalusot. I then topped up my Skype with credits and it went through. It took me about 1hr 15mins to get connected. Total cost ko sa Skype for waiting plus talk time around USD5.50 or Php250.

    @REESSE oo nga eh. I wasn't expecting na allocated na. Am sure allocated na din sa iyo. Hopefully meron ka na grant today or tomorrow. Ang lapit mo na kasi. hehe :) Anong state plan mo? Would you fly asap or later pa pag meron na tayo grant?

    @just_g29 oo, dami na nga july grants. Sa kakaexcite, ang tagal na ng isang araw. parang gusto ko fast forward hanggang approval. Lol

    @bachuchay if dun sa dibp info ko i.base, mga 1mo 5days na.allocate. pero hindi pa nagpaparandan si co hanggang ngayon. In 11 days, 1 month na yung application ko since allocation. Oo parang mabilis na ngayon. :)

    @cgm, plan namin pumunta just for initial entry as soon as ma approve. Then if things go well, we plan the big move in February, sayang din ang 13th month bonuses, malapit na din yun. Adelaide pala yung aim namin.

    Hindi ko ma check yung details ng application kasi nag agent kami, ayaw din nila tumawag pag Wala pa 3 months from date of submission, but keeping my fingers crossed, sana review state na din and direct grant. Early Christmas gift ba....

    Good luck sa ating lahat. Expect na tayo ng early gifts guys. O:-)

    share ko lang po ito regarding sa IED...
    baka may mas nakakaalam po ng reason, paki share nalang din po kung ano ang basis ng IED.

    our IED is before 08 July 2015

    but our ...
    medical valid: 6mos
    SG COC valid: 6 mos
    PH NBI valid: 12 mos

    we have a period of 10 mos to prepare, yey!

    ang sabi kasi dati dto sa forum is yung initial entry date will be based dun sa pinakamaikli na validity so we were expecting na baka mapressure kme sa pag enter to activate the visa at di masyado makaipon ng pang gastos since ung pinakashort na validity is 6mos. medyo may kaba po since we are a family of 3 and we'll definitely need time to prepare sa gastusin. pro when we rcvd the grant binigyan parin po kme ng 10 mos na time frame kahit na ang validity ng ibang docs namin is 6mos lang po.

    hindi ko po alam yung reason behind pro thankful parin po sa panahon na binigay samin.
    for the benefit din po ito ng iba who are wondering kung magkaron pa sila ng time makapaghanda financially, specially yung mga family po na medyo kailangan ng pondo to proceed with the initial entry.

    baka may nagbanggit na po nito at di ko lang po nabasa, pro share ko nalang din po ulit:)

    Hello! Im new here. Please help me out! I actually had my phone interview yesterday with the CO. But up to now, i did not received any decision about my students visa application. This is my 3rd application im anxious with the result.. My 1st application with de facto was refused due to insufficient funds in the bank certificate, my 2nd attempt still with de facto was withdrawn because they have this rule that the money should atleast stay in the bank for atleast 3 months (i dont know why my ageny in IDP still push to lodge my application). So my recent application was without my de facto coz unfortunately we broke up, so during the interview the CO was asking why I did not declare my relationship, and was asking the reasons and all that. She was also asking if she can contact my ex bf but sadly, we lost communication already. Do you think the CO will take it against me and refuse my appication? Please please help....
