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.

    Hi @Admin di ako sure if known issue pero just putting this under your radar hehehe. Mag u-upgrade pa naman this year.

    Back to topic.

    So ayun nga @Cassey nag reach out na ako sa IDP tapos si MJ (referred by @Drumcondra ) ni message ko din para mag ask ng helpful information. I'll reach out to AECC din soon.

    Yung circumstance ni Kuya kasi is a little bit different pero baka may same scenario dito. Nag check ako sa SOL wala syang relevant exprience sa mga skills doon. Theology kasi ang Diploma nya tapos most ng experience nya overseas is Hospitality related, around 10 years din. Maybe sa tingin ko pag hospitality management course pwede siguro yan na course, pero hindi naman ako expert haha.

    Kailangan na talaga umpisahan at di na pwede mag procrastinate kasi nga dun sa age nya, baka may rules na naman na mababago later on that might impact his application.

    We will keep the faith na sana there is a suitable pathway for him.

    Thank you!

    @alexamae I wasn't saying for your bro-in law not to proceed, it's that he needs to plan carefully before coming here. @cucci probably means the same. Kasi I based my assumptions on the info that you gave , and I don't like giving tips based on swerte (like ma sponsoran ng employer) so I give pointers based on immigration's rules.

    If PR na kayo both ng husband nyo, may iintroduce na bagong relative sponsored visa sa November. You might also want to take that into consideration. All the best.

    @MLBS now I know what you are trying to say. It just doesn't sound right in your first comment. That is all.

    We have checked other options for the past 6 years and he doesn't qualify to any other route even the Relative Sponsored Visa kasi dalawa pa sila nandun sa pinas, mum and him.

    Kailangan nya talaga mag student kaso yun nga magastos.

    @Cassey for family po sana pero ang laki ng price diff mas maganda ba na dumeretsi sa mga providers or same lang sa agency?

    @chenel010305 For family, paquote ka sa Allianz. Yung sa amin noon, we found that it’s cheaper if we get it directly from the provider. Shop around and see if it’s going to be cheaper than what is proposed to you. Depende rin kasi kung ano yung provider nung Agency.

    hi! yeah sir mj's correct naman. i have attended seminars jan sa pinas before with promotions na walang ielts need. then when i get to the school here last year, I was thankful enough na nagEnglish exam ako. Kasi considering your long term goal na maPR, malaking help na nagstart ka na sa pinas ng ielts or pte. I have friends here na di nagexam sa pinas then hirap dito especially sa job hunting. you might want to consider but just talk to sir mj and i am sure he can sort out something. meron din sila schools walang ielts kasi yung pinsan ko ayaw talaga, so inenroll pa din naman ni sir. be more researched sis, kasi once you get here, mas malalaman mo importance nung ibang docs na need ng school. all the best! and msg me lang if u need more assistance.

    @mafimushkila123 It depends on what cover you’re planning to get. Is it a singles cover, couple or family? It also depends on how long you’re planning to have the cover for.

    @Adreamer hindi po un ganun. pagka medical mo at clear lahat dun ka pa lang mag apply ng visa application mo sa immi. dun need ung SOP and other details na hindi hiningi sa medical mo
