    @sweet_lady hi. Kasama ko din nagapply husband ko. Yung brother-in-law ko yung nasa AU australian citizen na. Nagsend lang kami ng invitation letter ng brother-in-law ko. Attend kasi kami ng wedding niya. We did not put any sponsors kasi financially able naman si husband. Unemployed din ako. Granted naman multiple. :) Goodluck!

    just got my visa grant @cookie03 :)
    applied 12th granted 21st of october.
    thanks to everyone who replied sa mga questions ko. @Aiza05 @muffles127 @Admin
    napakahelpful talaga.

    ps: wala akong payslip, itr or coe naibigay. only bank cert and leave approval letter lang from employer.
    siguro a good cover letter, strong proof of reason to return tulad ng advice sakin (in my case medcert ng mom ko) and mga docs ng naginvite okay na
    finally, matinding dasal lang. si God mabait yan.

    Hello guys!!! I just need a help about better understanding on tourist visa we lodged last Nov 24 ( online ). I created an application online myself and my kids. It was an individual application but there's a group ID attached to each of our reference app number. The problem is i got my grant noticed but my 2 kids is still on receive status. Is there any possibility that their application will be refuse? Im a bit worry because I will not leave without them, they are my dependents. I wanna hear experiences similar to mine and if the grant of kid(s) follow after like few days or weeks. We wanna catch cheaper airfare on or before xmas.Thanks heaps

    @mai13 I did not submit any cover letter. I don't recall about evidence for travel. kasi makikita naman na sa passport yung travels mo. if its referring to other places you traveled at kong wala ka. NA.

    @rojo87 i don't think iba ang maging outcome sa mga bata kasi group application yun e. if I remember right sa application form ko online naka indicate yung members of the family who are travelling with me. same e mail address ginamit mo for the kids?

    @rojo87 me and my husband applied before as a group, mas nauna ang grant niya. but right after ako nagappear for biometrics which was required nareciv ko na din . Hintay lang lalabas din po yan:) tama si @batman hindi pedeng iba ang result ng grant for your kids. Happy holidays!

    Matthew 7:7
    Ask and you will receive, search and you will find, knock and the door will be opened for you.

    Psalm 23
    The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Eventhough I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will not fear no evil, for you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil. My cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and i will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
