hi AngelPinay 21, what a good news, congratulations. i begin to search this sc and try to figure out how to do. in my understanding, 2 forms 147 and 80 are required and stuffs from check list? are there anything i need to put in? i am a newbie and have no idea how to do it properly. did you document by yourself or thru agent? . i am from Vietnam, my daughter is a NZ citizen at birth (2002) and she returned VN when she was 1 month old and live with us since. highly appreciate for your shares.Tks .

Hello Kytran_8,

Your grant should come soon. You should double check your countries check list and follow the requirements indicated. In the Philippines checklist, there is no form 80, I did not include that form I just don't know if it is included in your country's checklist. I did not use an agent as it is expensive. My situation is very complicated as my kids are not my partners. I just followed the checklist and provided as much proof that we are in a continuous relationship. I am still legally married in the Philippines, but i was abandoned separated for 10 years. Regardless the visa is approved. We also submitted Statutory Declaration 2 of his friends and 3 from my side. Phone records, itinerary, wester union receipts. pictures etc. Just message if you have any questions. Good luck just be patient it will come.

Regards,
Anny

Hi Anny, wonderful for you quick response that's amazing. as you said that the NZ citizen is your partner and your kids included in the application? correct if iam wrong. from my case, my 14 yrs old is a NZ citizen and my wife and I will apply for 461. so in this case, i donot think i need to use Statutory Declaration form, right? one more thing, you apply online or hard copies. sorry for asking lots but i am just at the the beginning stage, not doing anything particular just try to understand how 461 works. thankyou very much Anny

Dear kytran_8,

Hi, yes my kids was granted as well, 5 years multiple entry in Australia. For your question of the statutory declaration, if the requirements indicate that you should include statutory declaration(s) you should follow the requirements. Anything that could help your application, you should include it in your application. I applied in the designated office in manila as they indicated on their website. I submitted hard copies as for this visa application in manila, it is only through VFS for visa sub class 461. I hope this information helps you.

Keen to hear if anyone has been granted a visa recently and how long their wait was. I lodged my application in Sydney mid-April and I haven't heard anything yet.
