I submitted my original and some photocopies in my application.

I am happy for those who get their visa.

My application of Tourist visa and Spousal visa 309 has been picked up by courier today.
I will update you guys for those who want any help and suggestions.
But I think all of you here lodged application already so I might be the last one to get my spousal but, hopefully in few weeks get my tourist visa.
I would like to say thank you for all of the member who shared their experiences, especially jajp23. This website is really helpful and all of the members.

Regards,

gorgeous22
Hi gorgeous! That's good to hear that you have already lodged your tourist and spouse visa Just make sure that you submit the medical and NSO before you leave for Australia so that it won't cause the delay on your spouse visa application.

No worries gorgeous... We're all here to share our experiences and help everyone...

Good luck on you tourist and spouse visa applications!

Thanks for your suggestions. I am planning to get my medicals in Australia and my NSO as well, since its online. What do you think?
I heard a friend saying she got her medicals done in Australia and I also ask the Customer Rep in VIA If it's possible to do it in Australia. He said YES it is.
I am just wondering about the NSO request? Do I have to go to Aust Embassy Manila to submit a receipt, or anything after I finish my request of documents like Birth Certificate, CENOMAR and Marriage Certificate?
(I already submitted original copy of my MC and CENOMAR and certified true copies of BC, CENOMAR, MC, but in case they still want me to do it online I will do it)Or can I do it online using the CC of my husband and NSO will forward my documents to Australian Embassy, so I don't have to be there personally to submit anything to them?
Pls advise me😒.


I applied for six months tourist visa and if ever I will be granted a six months or more, they will request a medical result be submitted. I can actually do that and at the same time take the other medicals for the spousal. There is no problem. I can fly to Manila to take my medical exam and test in St. Luke's.
If ever I will be granted a 3 months tourist (no medicals needed), and they request for medical exam be submitted for spousal visa application and the deadline isn't a problem and I can assure them that I can take it in Australia and Medibank will forward it to Aust Embassy Manila before the deadline.

Do you think that is possible? Do you think CO is not strict regarding deadline of submission of their requested medicals?
How long is the deadline? A week or two? Or 1 month? Pls enlightened me jajp23.
Thank you.

Hi gorgeous 22..

the medicals here is Australia costs around $300 and requires a booking through medibank australia while the one in the Philippine costs more or less $100 and you don't need a booking as long as you have your file reference number..

Thank you so much for the useful information Champagne.
I think the Australian Embassy will receive my documents on Monday and they might request for medicals too.
I will do it in St. Luke's, it is the same price more or less $100?
Based on what I saw on jajp23 timeline after she lodged the application, she was requested medicals for spousal the day after, so I think the same thing will happen to me.
But in my tourist visa application, they usually request it after 1 week of lodgement, so what do I have to do so I don't have to go back to Manila every now and then to take two medicals?
Can I ask two copies of medicals or do they give reference number for medicals that covers both tourist and spousal for application lodge at the same time?
Or do I have to tell them I have already a medial result and give the reference number so my CO for tourist will look for it, or it's inappropriate to do that?

Pls tell me the right thing to do.
I will appreciate your advise Champagne and pls any member who have experience pls help.

Hi abc. Thank you. I Think I will do it here.
What do you mean for six months visa? U meant to say about my tourist visa? They will request my medicals in 1 1/2 months? or that is the deadline?
Im sorry I'm a lil bit confused.

Yes I will do it as soon as I get acknowledgement and request for medicals and NSO.

Abc pls help me. Do I have to get two medicals? One for tourist and one for spousal? Can I just ask two copies and send it to Australian Embassy?
What do I have to do? Is the reference number that they will give me covers both application?
For me, I think I don't have to take two medicals for two applications. It won't make any difference in the results of my exam as it is only few days away from each medical exam if I will try to get two medicals in the same month.

Abc I will expect your understanding. I am just confuse now.

Thanks in advance!
Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Gorgeous!

When the embassy received your application normally within 7 days from date you sent the documents, they will send you an email acknowledging the receipt of your application.

I could only speak on the spouse visa application as don't have experience on TV.. The acknowledgment email include the following:

1. File reference number which you will use when communicating to them.
2. Date when they received your application. - This will be the actual lodgement date and not the date when you actually sent the documents.
3. Processing times - normally 6 months
4. Health examination list - this provides the HAP ID which you will provide to Panel Doctors, examinations needed
5. NSO-issued birth certificate/s for the applicant and all dependants - these has to be requested online and sent to directly to Australian Embassy. Your file reference number is required here.
6. If the applicant has been previously married, a copy of his/her Marriage Certificate on NSO Security Paper with remarks if annulled, divorce paper, or a copy of the death certificate of the former spouse on NSO Security Paper must be provided.
7. If any minor children are migrating (17yo and below), the sponsor is required to submit a National Police Clearance (NPC) as part of the application. Details on how to obtain this clearance is available on the website of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) at AFP Homepage - Australian Federal Police.
8. Items 5- 7 above should be submitted be submitted within 28 days from date of the email so that they are available for the case officer at time of assessment. - what I did was, when my husband was able to do the medical and have already requested NSO docs online, I sent the official receipts of the health examination performed in Panel Doctor and e-Census acknowledgement to make them aware that my husband did his part and that the embassy will receive them anytime soon.

Champagne and abc are right that you do the medical in the Philippines because its cheaper there than here in Australia.

I hope this helps!
