Help with PMV Requirements (Filipina applying visa in Singapore)

Hi!

My Fiance and I are planning to lodge our Fiance Visa Application on January 2012. I am from the Philippines and I am currently working in Singapore. My fiance is Australian citizen. We have been in a relationship for 2 years and 9 months. We visit each other alternately every 3 or 4 months. My questions are:

1. On the checklist, I will be needing a notarized copy of my passport and birth certificate. Does this need to be notarized by the Philippine Embassy in Singapore or any notary public in Singapore will do?

2. Do we need to provide an evidence of no previous marriage?

3. What should the statement of support contain? Does this need to be notarized as well?

4. About the 2 page statement of the history of relationship and future plans - is this just a simple statement signed by us or does it need to be a statutory declaration?

5. We do not have chat logs since we always talk on the phone or on skype and we wont be able to provide evidence for this. what we have are plane tickets and photos of us starting from the day that we have met. will that suffice?


6. Do I need to provide bank statements and copy of my Diploma as added documents? Or we should just stick with what is in the Check list?

7. Can I lodge my application here in Singapore or is it better to lodge the application in the Philippines?

Any feedback or tips will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much

Hi
Just take it one step at a time
1. Any notary or person eligible to notarise is sufficient
2. Proving your single status is important for the PMV, so you should get on that.
3. You should include the sponsor application but if it refers to an AoS being needed, you are looking at old material. Whatever extra the CO needs, they will request.
4. You need to have the statement notarised but it does not need to be a stat dec format
5. Sounds as if the evidenciary stuff is ok, include the bank statements for sure but don't overkill with data.
Best advice is read the partner migration booklet which is available on line and go carefully, precisely, through the checklist, making sure the information is clear to you and that you follow it to the letter.
The best application is the one that is correct and complete on the day you lodge it.
Have someone else you respect take another look at it and the checklist before you submit it and you should be fine.

I think the answer depends on your needs. Having some local wisdom looking at your application may help you. Although the "eligibility" of your application is pretty straightforward to decide. The only real variable is the waiting time once you have a validly lodged application. You may have to go in for an interview, so you need to decide if you want to travel for that or Singapore makes more sense. The other issue is the amount of time it will take to process the application. You may want to look up the times at each of the consulates/embassies and decide which is better.
You only have to make sure you lodge offshore ( you can't lodge from onshore)
Good luck!

Hi LOran,

Ha? 10mos? For PMV? Are u serious? I havent applied yet, but when I called 2 months ago, the officer said its only 5-8months. We are planning to apply for it next year around 1st quarter of next year. Because my boyfriend move to Queensland and He just recently started his work...

I only visited Australian Embassy when I am applying for a tourist visa, and I am applying again this august because I am going to visit him on September. How's your application?

Hi ms. Loran,

its just easy to get tourist visa here.. of course you need the subclass 676 application and answer all the questions. your bank statement, certificate of employment from your work, itenerary, copy of your passport and PR id. if your boyfriend will support you or if your intention is to visit your boyfriend, he needs to photocopy his passport. if you will be staying with him at least a copy or proof that he can afford to accomodate you. its just easy dont worry... also there's a fee and every july they increase it, the first time last year i only paid 145 and this march i think i paid for 150 plus or 170 plus.. anyways, all the requirments you can check at embassy of australia in singapore.

when did you applied for your PMV?
