    nag apply ako ng Child Visa for my son last July 2016, until now, wala pa rin. PR na both parents and living in Australia since October 2016. para maisama namin si baby, kinuha ko siya ng visit visa, and until now, naka visit visa pa din. nag inform naman ako sa immigration na nandito sa australia ang applicant. almost every month nag e-email ako sa immigration asking for an update kasi 18 months na, wala pa rin. wala naman silang hiningi na additional information.

    hi @cmlascano, thanks for sharing your timeline. Nung nag lodge po ba kayo kasama na agad yung Police certificates ng sponsors (parents)? In our case, kailangn namin kumuha ng NBI clearance, at Singapore Police.

    Thanks in advance!

    Child visa (child born out of wedlock)

    Hi everyone! Hopefully someone could answer me in this page.

    I have a 7 yr old child born out of wedlock. He is carrying my last name NOT his fathers’ last name and his father DID acknowledged/signed it at his birth certificate). His Dad never supported him since he was born. My parents supported me and my son, even until now. My son is living and under the care of my Mom since the day I left to go here. I am now married and holding my permanent residency. Since I got married, my husband supports my son and we send money to him for his needs.

    My first question is, is it possible if I can sponsor my son even if our source of income is from my husband only because I am not working yet because my husband and I had a child thus, I am looking after our kid for now.

    Second, do I still have to get a consent from my son’s Dad for the consent even if it states from the Philippine Law that the parental authority is with the mother? The law says here — Family Code of the Philippines, and is from Article 176 of the Code:

    “Illegitimate children shall use the surname and shall be under the parental authority of their mother, and shall be entitled to support in conformity with this Code. However, illegitimate children may use the surname of their father if their filiation has been expressly recognized by the father through the record of birth appearing in the civil register, or when an admission in a public document or private handwritten instrument is made by the father.”

    Third, what are the documents you’ve submitted or the immigration asked to make the visa processing quick?

    If someone please share your experiences and details as I am so confused where to start and I’m in a dilemma if it would be complicated to bring him here (like court orders or court hearings and will cost us a lot of money, if this applies to my situation). We would like to get my child to here as soon as possible. Please enlighten me. Thank you!

    Hi everyone, im applying for this visa as well and i just want to get some advice from anyone who successfully applied for this visa. This is in regards with the payment of this visa application. Does it have to be managers check dapat lang ang payment? Or pwede cash? if managers check lang ang option lang how do i get one? And also pwede ba yung check is payable in australian dollars? I calculated kasi na mas mura yung visa fee if you pay it on dollars instead of converting it to peso. Any help.you can provide will be much appreciated. Thanks

    @cmlascano salamat sa response. Kami baka mag lodge kami ng walang police clearance, kasi sa Singapore, kailangan meron documentary proof kung para saan gagamitin yung PCC.

    Explain na lang namin sa cover letter namin. Thanks

    Good day po. Anong visa po ba ang pwedeng iapply sa baby na pinanganak sa pinas tapos yung magulang parehong visa 489 ang hawak? Then ang baby hindi naideclare sa visa 489 application dati as subsequent applicant.
