    question lang, i am currently waiting for ITA... and iniisip ko na magpamedical na sana. Napansin ko lang dun sa my health declarations na finifill up para makakuha ng HAP ID need iindicate yung visa na inaapplyan. I applied for 189 and 190 eh and kung alin mauna yun ang ipupush ko sana. So ang question ay, kung ilagay koba na for 189 yung sa form para makagenerate ng HAP ID, and natuloy ako sa medical and naging cleared sya, tapos biglang nauna ako ma ITA sa 190, pwede ko din ba gamitin yun results don kahit na for 189 ang nilagay ko? Sana may nakakaalam medyo naconfuse kasi ako thanks :)

    Hello po.. Ask ko lang if meron n po b dto n current student sa australia then waiting ng decision from dibp ng 190 visa application? My husband and I are quite confused.. We are currently on a student visa.. Ako po ung student ngyon but we applied my husband to be the primary applicant for our nsw 190 visa.. He was just invited by nsw last jun 10 then he got an ITA last jun 24.. We already lodged a visa last jun 25.. We have uploaded all the docs na required and possible na irequest.. We're done with our medical as well.. Do u have any idea sa usual processing time for 190 visa? Need ko na kasi magenrol soon kaso confused kami kasi nasa melbourne kami ngayon pano if maapprove na yung visa namin and currently enrolled ako dito.. Di ba need namin mgmove to nsw soon? Dapat ba mgcall ako sa immi to seek for an advice? Sorry for the long info.. Hope somebody could help us.. Thanks much!!

    @freshmaker bro ask ko lang, inabot din pala ng almost 2 months before kayo na grant sa visa 189, what is the documents na ask pa ni CO sa yo that time? Kami kasi nag submit last June 29 ng Form 815 (for our youngest son). Nag aalala lang ako sa tagal ng processing when kaya kami marelease as we are a family of six. Thanks!

    @jedh_g Sir, 1 month and 2 days inabot yung sa akin. 09 June ako naglodge, tapos 11 July yung grant. Direct grant na po kasi na-ifrontload ko na lahat ng documents kasama Forms 80 & 1221.
    Baka nga po dahil family of six kayo kaya medyo natagalan. Don't worry parating na rin yan. Konting patience pa and keep praying.

    @chewychewbacca haha yun nga eh.
    @fgs gusto ko lang sana pamedical na kasi yung friend ko na andun na sa Sydney ngayon nung nagpamedical natagalan inabot ng 2 months pa kasi may nakita na "scar" or maliit na dot dun sa xray ng lungs nya. kaya nag sputum test pa. may hinahabol lang din kasi ako na timeline kaya gusto kona din sana gawin ng maaga medicals. nabasa ko din kasi dito na kapag dito sa pinas halos lahat ata nakikitaan ng scar sa lungs kaya it is highly likely na mag sputum test din if ever. tama ba?
