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.

    @jacqbrions That would still be ok. Just be sure to bring along the new document with proper HAP ID when you do medicals.

    Will do po. Thank you for your help :)

    Hi do immig officers check letter of offer when arriving in Australia? My letter of offer is for Aug intake but school moved me to Sept. So COE is Sept but school didn’t send a new letter of offer that Sept intake ko. I asked the school and they said it’s okay kasi I only need to present my COE. Is this correct?

    I don't remember being asked of where I will stay when I arrive in Australia. It's pretty common to book temporary housing for the next few days until you can personally inspect prospective flats/houses for long-term accommodation (don't sign long-term housing arrangements until you've seen the place in person!). I think immigration would understand that; just make sure to bring proof of your booking in case they do ask where you'll stay (and research prospective places on flatmates.com or something). I stayed with relatives for over a month before I found my own room, and a friend booked hostel accommodations while waiting for her dorm to open.

    Hi everyone. Bago lang po ako dito sa Pinoyau forum. Pasensya na po kung dito ako magtatanong sa page na 'to. Pwede kaya ako kumuha ng Masters Degree sa Au kung ang degree ko na BS Business Admin sa pinas po at thru ETEEAP(Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation)? Sana po meron may idea at may sumagot. Thank you so much in advance. :)

    hi, have you check what level is your degree comparable to AQF? https://www.aqf.edu.au/aqf-levels. then igauge mo kung pasok ang degree mo for the entry requirements ng Masters program na kukunin mo.
    Or, you might also want to consult education agents para mas maguide ka, libre lang naman ang consultation. back read ka sa mga agencies na ginamit ng mga ka-forum natin dito.

    Good day po sa lahat. I'm an Electrical Engineer with 4 years of working experience related to my field. I already lodged my 189 visa (70 points) and sa tingin ko mahirap ma invite for PR. So, I want to try na mag student muna and my brother is already a PR na sa Au. Question ko lang po, may mga courses po kaya akong pwedeng itake na related sa pinag tapusan ko? Wala pa po kasi ako masyado idea sa pag Student Visa. Thank you!

    Yes, back in 2015 ang rule is dapat covered lahat ng member na included sa student visa for the duration of your course.

    When you say na-refuse, dahil mali ang kinuhang OSHC?

    It's a main requirement so I believe if you did not lodge it during the initial visa application, CO will contact you and you need to provide it within a specified period.

    Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

    Hello sa lahat. May mga questions sana ako which I hope you guys can help me with. I am currently in Sydney on a Student Visa granted last Oct 2018. Gusto ko sana iapply ang asawa ko for a Student Subsequent Entrant Visa.

    1. Can we lodge the application at any point now since my student visa is active and valid till 2020?

    2. Saan po dapat naka-base ang start and end date ng OSHC nya: based ba at least on or before the date we submit his application and end on same date as my OSHC?

    3. My husband is currently onshore on a tourist visa and we would like to lodge the application before it expires. Kelangan pa ba nami ifill out ang Form 919 (yung pang nomination of eligible dependents who are applying separately and offshore)? Nalito kasi ako since he is onshore but applying separately.

    4. Meron ba ditong nakaranas magsubmit ng subsequent entrant visa application na hindi na hinigan ng proof of financial capacity? (Sabi kasi ng agent ko dati discretion lang ng DHA, yung sa akin wala kasi hiningi eh.)

    5. Lastly, baka po meron sa inyo may guide for the GTE statement ng subsequent entrant. It would be such a great help kasi magdi-DIY kami.

    Salamat ng marami sa mga sasagot. All the best sa atin and God bless!

    Hi Guys,

    Good day sainyo, My partner is planning to study in Australia (Perth). highest attained nya e 2nd yr college (so technically, HS diploma sya) . then we decided na punta nalang sya n Australia sa sister nya para dun nya kunin degree nya.

    Kaya namen naisip itong route na to kasi ako dapat ang main applicant. unfortunately, ang tataas ng points and di kme pasok sa november 2019 points changes.

    so naisip namen, mag student visa nalang sya then later on sya nalang mag PR.

    meron na po ba sainyo gumawa ng ganitong route?

    Thanks po

    Hello po,

    Katulad nang nakararami, sumubok din ako mag AU back in 2013. I had zero knowledge back then but thru the help of awesome people of Pinoyau.info naglakas loob ako magapply nang PR. Sa awa nang Diyos, I was granted a PR then na grant na rin ang citizenship ko this year.

    Ilang beses ko pinipilit ang brother ko pumunta dito but only recently ko lang sya napapayag. I want to help my him but unfortunately, hindi sya pwede sa PR route kasi wala syang enough work experience. Gusto ko sana sya mag student visa.

    Meron po ba may kilala na agent or alam na agency na pwede makatulong sa amin?

    Cheers!
