Don't forget your Filipina will need to do a CFO course after her visa approval. They wont let her out of the country without it.
Thanks Sammy J. What's that CFO course?

All Filipinos going abroad as fiancées, spouses or family members of foreign nationals are required to attend the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) guidance and counseling session in order to secure the Guidance and Counseling Certificate (GCC) and the CFO sticker. You can’t leave the airport without it. This is a requirement of the Philippine government.

https://www.cfo.gov.ph/

So basically once she gets her visa granted you will have to book an appointment online using that website. There are separate sessions depending on what country they are emigrating to. She will need to show the grant letter so you can't do it before that

[QUOTE=the.missus;1906743]I've done some research as well but I am just not confident if I can get a visa grant before our wedding which is next year 2019. Do you think getting help from migration agent will speed up the process? Processing times as seen on home affairs website will take 14 months. I have talked to a visa agent and they said the average processing times based on their experience was 6 months, but i was thinking that was before when it was through papers and not online lodgement.[/QUOTE

@missus nobody can tell how long it really takes i guess depends on luck plus you need to ensure all docs are correct will help a long way.

PMV = im guessing Permanent Migration Visa?? we applied in May not using an agent..

CFO is no big deal to get and keep in mind that you can travel to HK or other visa free country and take a AU flight from there with no CFO.

PMV = Prospective Marriage visa aka Fiance Visa
Yes the CFO is quite easy to obtain, but i wouldn't be so blasé about Philippines Immigration. That mob has cost me a fortune in obtaining or changing flights due to not letting my wife through and us missing those flights. They are simply terrible
