    Hello po...Nagapply po ako ng TV Sponsored family stream nitong july lang. Narefused po ang visa ko dahil hindi ko daw nasatisfy ang provision ng Migration Regulation 1994 (ano po ba ang ibig sabihin nito at ano-ano ang nga ito) Ang sister ko po ay on going ang partner visa kaya meron sya bridging visa sa ngayon. Ang main sponsor ko po ay ang partner nya na australian citizen. Ano ano po ba ang strong documents na maaari kong ipasa para ma approved na ang visa ko sa susunod. Tama rin po ba na ako muna ang magapply ng TV at iwan muna ang aking asawa. Date po kasi ay balak namin magsabay na lang ng apply. Dati pong ofw kaming dalawa sa knya lang po nakapangalan ang mga sasakyan namin. Wala po sya work now, ako naman po ay education student.
    Salamat po sa sasagot.

    Hi ask ko lang po: My sister is holding an Au Tourist Visa which is valid until Jan 2020. We visited Melbourne together last April and gusto sana nya uli magvisit Feb 2020 next year. Ask ko lang if may nakapagtry na magapply ng Tourist visa before expiry of existing Tourist visa. Mag-aapply kasi sya sana uli ahead of time. Thanks!

    Hello po sa lahat, may itatanong po sana ako regarding sa sister ko for tourist visa. We applied her first visit po for 3 months here in Brisbane but naiwan yung 3 yrs old na anak niya. This time we were planning na magvisit sila ulit by september and may boyfriend siya na citizen here pero 4 months pa lang sila. May question is possible kaya na kame ulit magsponsor sa sister ko and her son to visit here as tourist for 2 -3months? or yung boyfriend niya dito? Thank you po sa help and information.

    @heewon I see, let’s just be hopeful :). My story on the otherhand is I lodged my application August 30 (status: received to initial assessment), and they immediately asked me to do biometrics which I complied the next day August 31, since then the status changed from “initial assessment to further assessment” up until present. Kept checking my emails actually thinking they might ask me additional requirements/ proofs.

    Hi, @flying_lime. Did you eventually get the visa? I know it's been a year. Pero wala na kasing exact date yung post. Ilang days ka naghintay? Thanks!

    Hi guys...

    I am on 482 working visa. Iaapply ko parents ko ng tourist and magpprovide ako ng invitation stating na I will shoulder all of ther expenses. Ask ko lang yung mother ko may laman bank statement and sknya nakapagalan pati land title. Pero yung dad ko wlang laman own bank statement nya. Kailangan ba ipajoint ung bank statement ng mom ko sknya? Wla kasi ako maiattach sakanya. Though iaattach ko din naman bank statement and payslips ko. Thank you po sa sasagot.
