@Briana: hi! what other additional docs did the co asked for? thanks

Hi champagne,
I also lodge my PMV application your just 4 days earlier to me, i loged my application 21th sept.2012 and so with my PC.i recieve acknowledgement letter from embassy on the monday 24th sept.and request me my cenomar and send me also my HAP I.D, so i had my medical on 26th sept..then till now not hear from them even about C.O, as i read all the post here on the forum it will take 2 to 3 months to have assigned C.O...
You are asking if u can get another nbi and cenomar and submitt this before they ask, well in my opinion may say that just wait u will have C.O then he/she will ask to you,wait until they ask from u...
Thanks and God Bless us all...

Did your CO told you that your visa grant is 24/10/2012 and now waiting for the email? You are so lucky she told you in advance so, congrats in advance too!

After calling the call centre ( VIA ) earlier in the day and being told that the application is still being assessed and to wait for an email, I later called the embassy directly and spoke to a CO ( not ours ) who I told that we were told that the application would be finished being assessed this week ( via a email from our CO... long story ). He checked the application and told me her visa was granted. He said that she should receive an email soon with all the details. I had some follow up questions about her attending the CFO which to me confirmed that I wasn't imagining that he said her visa was granted. Hehehe. I'll be checking her email today ( as usual ) for the official notice and will call them again this afternoon if there is still no sign of it. But thinking about it now... I guess the visa grant date isn't 24.10.12, is it ?!

Hello everybody,

I just signed up onto this forum after reading through the threads. Like many of you, I just had to find people who share the same feelings of frustration, helplessness and yes, the utter torment -- as someone said -- of waiting for my visa approval.

My timeline:

25 September 2012 - PMV 300 visa lodgement at VIA Makati
28 September 2012 - Acknowledgement from embassy by email with request for (1) NSO docs to be submitted online and (2) medical exam
28 September 2012 - Medical exam completed
01 October 2012 - Receipts for medical exam, NSO online transactions, NBI clearance and form 956 submitted to VIA. (I read somewhere on the DIAC website that to speed up processing, it would help to allow embassy officials to discuss my application with my sponsor. When I inquired about this at VIA, they asked me to fill up form 956. I don't know if it will help, but I figured I had nothing to lose.)

I tried to make good use of my idle time by attending the compulsory Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar (PDOS) at the Commission of Filipinos Overseas office in Manila, Quirino Ave. cor. South Superhighway. (They allow this, but I will have to go back to them again once my visa is approved so I can be given the required label/sticker which I believe they will attach on my passport.) However, I could not get a slot as all 15 allocated for Australia on that assigned day were filled up, and unfortunately, they do not accept reservations. Good thing I reside within Metro Manila; my heart goes out to those coming from the provinces. I have decided to go through the PDOS only after I have my visa so I don't waste time and resources going back there. It's not very accessible by public transport.

For those of you going through the tormenting waiting process, you are not alone... it is difficult, but let us keep in mind that this too, shall pass.

Marianina
