Prospective marriage 2014
 
Hi this is Meg from Philippines,

I have an Australian citizen fiance and he lives in South Australia area. We only met online and he went here in Philippines to see me and my family for almost 3 weeks last July 2012 and we got engaged when he got back to his country last August 2012. I have had tourist stay with his family last December 2012 and 2013, both for 3 months. He is currently working as service station attendant in OTR. We are planning to apply this year for the wedding next year, hopefully. He doesnt have a lot of money,no own car and no own house and he just started this new job March 2013. When I get there for good, we will stay in his family's house til we save for our own. We are planning to apply PMV as soon as we have saved enough for the PMV which will be more or less 4 grand.

Him without these cars and house can affect the application? We are both afraid to apply soon because if we fail it, we will wait again til he saves money and 4 grand is big amount to lose.

Thanks.

Hi Hennypenn thank you so much! I really wish we could just get passed this because it stresses us out lol it is a bit depressing for me too.

Hi Meg, I dont believe it will affect your application if your finance not own a car or house. We are the same I am Australian Citizen and my finance from Phils, we submitted our PMV in Manila Jan 2014. Total costs might be a little more than 4k by the time you allow for additional costs such as Medicals, Police Checks, Photocopying documents and having these documents certified. Make sure you read all the necessary criteria and supply all the documents together, you can also submit Police check and medical check with visa application. Just make sure the police check and medical check are not more than a few months old, more than 12 months old then you will need to do again . It is a lot of money, so you want to make sure you get it right and supply all the required documentation to make you application successful as possible. Once you have submitted there is currently 6 - 12 months processing time, this will give you more time to save money.

Cheers

Hi Marymar,

Thanks for your advice here. I was just wondering if photocopy of my papers would do? Or does it need to be certified for most of it?

Thanks,
Megz

Yes they need to be true and certified, stamped and signed, when all our paper work together we took them to the local council building had them certified, I believe you can also have them certified at the VIA centre in Manila for a fee. In the visa application it will tell you what documents need to be certified.
Start reading so you can slowly gather the documents and not be in a mad rush use the checklist > http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/_pdf/300-checklist.pdf

It is important to read and understand all this, then you will know exactly what you need to be successful po

Have you got your visa granted already? How did it go?

MaryMar 05-29-2014 02:38 AM

No not approved yet, we submitted ours 09/01/2104 @ Via Centre Manila, all documents together including Police and Medical ( to make ready application) so just been over 4 months now they did contact us for additional information (baptism and school records) for my partner, but not heard anything else to date, just waiting patiently
