    Hi, I'm a new member here. May question po sana ako, my aunt would like to sponsor me and my lola this November para umattend ng wedding niya. This is her 2nd wedding na po kasi namatay na yung asawa niya. Permanent resident na po siya and she's been living there for almost 10 years na, may bahay at nurse siya. Nakapunta na po lola ko last 2015 for 3 months and si tita din po sponsor. I am already working for a year and two months dito sa company and I'm only allowed to have a 2 weeks leave so I'll be staying in Australia for 2 weeks only. Do I need to submit my bank statement kahit less thank 50K lang laman? I just graduated last 2017 kaya wala pa po ako gaanong savings. Or yung bank statement lang po ni tita kailangan since siya naman sponsor? Also, she wants me to apply a student visa later this year, makakaaffect po ba yung pag'grant ng student visa ko if ever na madeny ako sa TV (sana hindi). Sana po makareply kayo :)

    @lunathelabel16 Request for a letter from your aunt indicating that the main purpose of your visit is to attend the wedding and that she will be sponsoring all your expenses during the period of your stay. Also request a letter from your employer certifying your employment status and that you are allowed leave of absence during that period. As to your bank account attaching a bank certificate would help even if the amount is not that big.
    Your visitor visa would have no bearing on your student visa application unless you breach the conditions of your stay.

    @ynnej09 For visa application po ba? One of the reason for the present CoE is to satisfy the requirement of substantial connection to indicate that you are going back after your visit. As such a previous CoE would be of no use.

    Hi! Ask ko lang po kung meron dito na retired gov't. employee na nakapagapply na ng online Tourist visa? My Aunt is planning to travel in Australia for a month po. She has a previous travel in AU last 2015. Recently lang po nag retire na sya from gov't service at age 65. Ang question ko po ano po ang dapat ilagay nya dun sa employment portion sa immi account..retired govt employee? No need na po ba ng travel authority since wala na sya connection sa gov.'t? Sa mga retired govt employee po na naka experience po ng ganitong situation na nandito sa group, anong certification po ba dapat attach na retired na sya?
    Maraming salamat po.

    @AkawntantAnne I helped my aunt complete a TV application online a year ago. She's previously working in the gov't and retired in 2017. We just indicated in the application that she's retired and attached supporting documents (i.e. pension docs/retirement docs). We also included bank statements and properties under her name.

    For the question on knowing the dates of entry for each occasion, we indicated NO since we are not sure when can my aunt come back due to obligations in PH. You can say NO if you are not sure and just indicated your reason. Otherwise, if you know/have plans on returning (when requesting for a multiple entry visa), indicate the dates. As an example, when I applied for the TV of my mom (multiple entry for 12 mos) I indicated significant dates when we needed her to be in AU (i.e. attending a uncle's wedding) aside from the dates when we plan for her to stay to look after our child. Hope this helps.

    Hello question po, not sure if this question was already asked before. I'm a PR and I am planning to have my parents and siblings apply for a tourist visa. Can I use my own immiaccount to apply on behalf of them or kailangan at least isa sa kanila magcreate ng immiaccount para sa kanilang lahat. Also another question, ok lang po ba magapply ng tourist visa uli if valid pa yung current? If not, is it possible to apply for extension instead? Thanks in advance po sa sasagot :)
