I have sent two email enquiries regarding our application and have received a similar answer saying that they the application was currently being processed and the CO would get in touch with us if further documents was required. We were also told that the average processing time was 6 months and we were given details of our case officer. but they have not given us a tentative date as to when we could get an answer or at what stage our application is at and I don't want to be a pain and email all the time.

As you would all understand anxiety is starting to set in because we have not been asked for any further information/documents and an iterview has not been conducted yet. Am just scared that comes the 6 months period and they decide to ask us for further information. Is it unusual that its over three months now and nothing has been asked from us?

I would like to receive any feedback or experience from anyone who has dealt with applying a visa from the Philippines.

Thank you and best of luck to everyone who is applying. This forum has really helped me getting through the waiting period.
Hello! NO NEWS means GOOD NEWS.
The CO will let you know when they need additional requirements.

Hi. I will be applying a tourist visa and spousal visa at the same time. Do you think by calling the VIA Center they can pick up my papers thru the courier AIR21?
I tried it before with the tourist visa and I am not sure if it is possible for spousal visa.

Can pls someone with information post a comment. I will really appreciate it.

About me:

I have been to Australia twice with a tourist visa.
Now that I am married to an Australian, I will be lodging application: tourist visa and spousal visa at the same time.
I will lodge my application this November and I am hoping to get a grant for my tourist so I can celebrate with my husband.

My questions are:
- Do I have to wait for the CO to request a medical results?
- Do I have to order NSO Livebirth and Marriage Certificate online or the original will be accepted?
- Is the courier capable of submitting my spousal visa application and tourist visa application? ( as long as I call the VIA center first )
- How much check should I prepare for spousal application fee and for tourist visa?
- For those who were asked additional requirements, can you pls tell me what were the documents requested?

I will appreciate any comments.
Thank you so much. Godbless!

Hi,

I recently lodged a PMV application in Singapore last October 23 and the acknowledgement letter handed to me on the same day indicates a CONTACT OFFICER's name, is it the same as CO?

Thanks!

hi gorgeous22,

You'll need to wait for confirmation mail from embassy after submitting your application before you can take your medical and request for NSO documents; embassy only accepts NSO documents requested online.

Visas and Migration - Australian Embassy
Frequently Asked Questions - Australian Embassy

You'll only need to set an appointment with VIA for their appointed courier to pickup your application, no need to contact a separate courier.

Schedule of application fees as of July 1, 2012:
http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/990i0712.pdf

Most of the time, embassy requests for additional proof of relationship. Also some experienced issues with their NBI clearances (e.g. TRAVEL ABROAD vs. AUSTRALIA VISA), luckily they accepted my AUSTRALIA VISA NBI clearance.

I was just wondering because she was the same person who received and checked my paper application and answers my phone inquiries whenever I call the immigration.
