Enjoy your wedding and keep it simple. I have seen nice weddings in PH conducted by a judge (you still get to dress up) as well as the big catholic wedding. My choice these days would be the civil wedding by a judge (less hassles) followed by a nice family dinner/reception.
I was a guest of a chineese marriage and the reception took over the entire large resort. End of the day they were still just married though a few thousand dollars lighter. now time to mind my own business

Lodge it in VIA Makati. I'll give it a few days. Thanks

Now my question is, once his pmv visa is granted and comes here to spend time with me and then we get married in the Philippines, will he need to stay back there and lodged the spouse visa offshore or can he come back here using his pmv visa after we get married and apply the spouse visa onshore? I know that in the immi website it states there that we can get married in Australia or overseas as long as he comes here first before getting married. We're just confused if he can apply onshore after our wedding overseas or he needs to stay back there.. Thanks
Hi champagne! Is your plan in getting married in tne Philippines really that soon? Will it be in the next 6 months? I would suggest that you wait for the 4th month mark of your visa application and see whether the pmv visa will be granted.. If not and your fiance plans of going to Oz before the Philippine wedding then I would suggest that you wait for the pmv visa approval, get married here in Oz so that there would be no complications. I'm not sure how your marriage on Phils affect the pmv visa application but I guess you really have to change it to Partner visa and additional documents might be needed. You're on your 3rd going 4th month waiting already so why not wait for the pmv visa? Do you have CO assigned already? Maybe you send an email to follow up.

BMExpress does reverse cargo but they require minimum of 3 boxes.

I would also suggest Philpost - a friend of a friend sent a min of 25kg package for Php3k only. If you're still in the Phils and going to Oz, you could purchase addtl luggage allowance from your airline.

I lodge my application last november 3,2012. As far as i know the payments is $2060 for prospective marriage visa and 115 for tourist visa.
Plus the VIA office requires you to pay 600 pesos for the handling fee, and that's all no more additional payments.
After 1day of submitting my docs.the embassy message me that they already received my docs.
3days after they require me to undergo a medical test and it cost 4000 pesos, they also require me to submit another docs.which is my singleness stating for visa purposes.
So i did,more hustle but you to comply all what they want.
Less than 8week i received an email from the embassy that i didn't met the health test there's something wrong in my lungs
But the problem now is I'm already here in australia for 3months visa.
So i try to call the embassy even the health center but it took a while to contact them.
After i sent them a message regarding my case that i am here in au.jan4 i recieved an email that i will undergo further test here in Tasmania.
The best thing u do aussieboy is call the embassy in manila then ask further info about the payments.
Also you need to wait 8weeks to have a case officer.anyway they will send you an email regarding that.always have a look to your email incase they will send you a mail.
Goodluck aussieboy and also to your fiancee.!it will be fine

Hi jajp23! We plan to get married after 5-6 months after he receives his pmv visa.. for example if he gets it in feb then we will have our wedding between june or july.. we're not really in a rush to get married in a specific month.. but the idea is for him to come here first then we get married in the Philippines.. Just confuse if he needs to stay back there after the wedding and apply for spouse visa offshore or if he can come back here with me and apply onshore spouse visa.. but on the immi website it says that it doesnt matter where we have the wedding as long as it is in the 9month validity of the visa and that he's entitled to multiple entries..

I still haven't receive my acknowledgement letter from the embassy if they received my application last Dec. 18. I would like to make a call and ask. Should I call the Embassy or VIA?

congratulations AngelaMay!

may i ask you what sort of attachments did you include in your onshore partner visa application? i am also a current PMV holder. I'm just not sure if those attachments I submitted to immigration for my fiance visa (i.e. relationship history, pictures, plane tickets, etc) should still be included to the partner visa application we are about to submit. hope you can help. thanks!
