491 Visa (Family Sponsored)

Hi Everyone,

I just would like to ask if meron pong naka-try na magsubmit ng application for 491 visa pero imbes na state nomination, family member sponsored po yung sponsorship.

Kung meron po, can you share your experience and process that you did po? Thanks po

    Hi, I did the 491 FS sponsorship. It's essentially the same as 189 but with additional docs for the relative sponsorship part. Straightforward naman saken, I have the dates on my signature.

    Uncle ko nagsponsor saken e. I submitted his birth cert, passport and cert of citizenship. Need din ng Statutory declaration na may pirma nya, nasa immi website yung template nun. Sa mom side ko naman (sibling ni uncle), I showed her birth cert as well to prove na related sila. Na CO-contact pa nga ako kasi initially marriage cert lang ng parents sinubmit ko, pero no issues naman til grant.

    I feel I can answer this as well. Back then 4 na EOI meron ako (189,190, 491 for 2 different relatives of mine). Walang issue sa multiple EOIs. Just make one each for family and state sponsored.

    Yes pwede yan. Wala namang bearing ang EOI e, hindi naman chinecheck ang details dyan. Think of it as a raffle entry, walang weight until mabunot. Nagmamatter yan pag visa lodge na. So you can make as many EOIs as you need

      Total - 90 pts + 15 pts (nomination), malaki ang chance makapasok

    95points kaya may chance sa FS? Haha. Iniisip ko kung mag try pa ko PTE Superior for additional 10pts. Thanks....

    I was invited with 95 points total back in 2020. Dati sinasagad ko lahat ng points kasi wala ako work exp at all, so lahat ng exam tinake ko (PTE/NAATI). Go for superior pts!

    Hi, I did the 491 FS sponsorship. It's essentially the same as 189 but with additional docs for the relative sponsorship part. Straightforward naman saken, I have the dates on my signature.

    Hi Sir, Thanks po. Can you share po what are the docs na required from family member? Thanks po

    Uncle ko nagsponsor saken e. I submitted his birth cert, passport and cert of citizenship. Need din ng Statutory declaration na may pirma nya, nasa immi website yung template nun. Sa mom side ko naman (sibling ni uncle), I showed her birth cert as well to prove na related sila. Na CO-contact pa nga ako kasi initially marriage cert lang ng parents sinubmit ko, pero no issues naman til grant.

    @MLBS birth cert, passport and cert of citizenship and statutory declaration lang po ba mga req’ts for family member na magsponsor?

    you will enter yung postcode ng suburb ng sponsor. If it's not a regional area, dun palang sa stage ng eoi madedeny ka na kasi it will show a warning from what I've read here. Wala din show money ang sponsor or anything na babayaran, just the visa lodging fee itself. No extras
