Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

January 2017 Visa 189/190/489

    Btw guys, nakalagay sa form "Please use a pen, and write neatly in English using BLOCK LETTERS."

    Pen talaga or puwede I-fillup yung pdf sa computer, then print it out then yung pen lang yung signature?

    Pero parang may nabasa ako na puwede din scanned signature?

    Salamat ng marami! :)

    God is really good. He do everything in HIS time.

    Ganito pala feeling ng naka receive ng grant. Seriously, hindi ko ini expect na mapapaiyak ako sa tuwa.

    Maraming salamat po sa mga forum na ito at sa mga taong walang sawang sumasagot sa mga tanong ng bawat member dito.
    Special mention to @greatsoul @auitdreamer @tweety11 for your help!

    @greatsoul
    At least now, hindi nako kakabahan sa alis namin ng 3rd week of March. I actually booked that trip by faith believing that God will grant our visa before that date.

    @eujin mukhang nabasa mo na istorya ko. hehehe.

    @brnaye @tweety11 3rd week of March po punta namin. Dapat bisita lang muna kaming 2 ng wife ko and apply sana muna ng tourist visa but then took a leap of faith and decided to include my kids in the same trip believing that we will receive the grant by Feb. Praise God!

    @mike @Noodles12 @FireBREATHER Thanks!

    @Santi Thanks and congrats din sa inyo.

    in my case, same management but school was granted a university status. so may additional "university" sa end..with EA, we used the new name kasi we submitted new school records bearing the new name but EA used old name of school, di naman nag-ask ng additional school records. But with DIBP when we lodged our visa, I submitted certification to support the CEMI of my wife (from same school0 which has the new university logo..
