Everything I've seen on here from Dubai is approved in under 3 months.

It depends on where the applicant has lived. Dubai processes alot of applications from very high risk countries (Syria, Yemen etc) that need to undergo security checks from ASIO so these takes ages.

If the applicant is not from a very high risk country then the process is alot faster than other embassies.

Actually not true because I applied through "Jordan" and embassy in jordan informed that the application went to Dubai Since i am resident in Saudi Arabia .. Dubai embassy only for GCC countries .. and Jordan for Iraq and Syria .. etc

Hi guys

Just wanted to say thanks for your help, my visa has just been granted!
I will be making the entry to Australia shortly.

Just wondering if you know how I should go about Medicare register.
I held it last time I was in Australia on a different visa, not sure if it has expired?
Apparently my partner in Australia who is waiting for my return has received the renewed Medicare card after I left there last time.

So I hope Pinoys who are waiting for their visas or were already granted their visas can share their experiences here. Questions most welcome, too!

Here's mine:


I've been living in Abu Dhabi for almost 6 years now.
  • I applied online on 6 August 2016.
  • I submitted colored scans of original documents, and none of them were certified true copies.
  • I didn't use an agent.
  • At the time of submission, I did not submit medicals and police clearances because I was worried they would expire before a CO was assigned.
  • On 9 October 2016, my CO asked me to do my medicals and police clearances.
  • I applied for my UAE police clearance through the mobile application, and I got it the next day.
  • For my Philippines police clearance, I went to the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi where I got an NBI Clearance form and special power of attorney for my dad to claim my NBI Clearance in Cebu. The NBI Clearance was sent to me here in AUH as I had to sign it.
  • For my Indonesian police clearance, I explained to the CO that I had difficulty getting it because my documents were not kept by my previous employer and personal appearance in Jakarta was needed. In lieu of this, she asked me to submit a Statutory Declaration stating that I had no criminal history, and I had it certified at the Australian Embassy in Abu Dhabi.
  • My medicals were delayed by 2 weeks because of an error by the panel clinic in reading my x-ray, where they required me to do additional tests which all turned out to be negative.
  • By 1 November 2016, I had completely submitted all my medicals and PCs.
  • I did not hear anything from the CO until my visa was granted on 17 November 2016!

So if I take away the 2 week delay in my medicals, that means my visa was granted in a little under 3 months!!! What's more shocking is my visa 309 and 100 were issued at the same time! I wasn't expecting this since we've only been married for 2 months at the time of my application!

It was really unexpected, since PH is a high risk country (PH), and our case officer had not even called us for an interview!
