I think the reason why they're doing this is that a lot of expat workers here use their cards extensively and when their visa expires, they just leave the country thinking they wouldn't have a record. I'm sorry but I think you may have to consult a lawyer regarding this case. Have you tried to look for an advocate who can represent your husband? Are you talking about one bank only or more?

Just wondering, if he worked in Dubai for less than a year, why is he still required to get a police cert? I thought this only applies for people who worked in another country for over 12 months. For police certificate, it takes only 3-4days to get it if you're cleared, valid for 3months. Hang in there, I'm sure something could be done. Does your husband know anybody in Dubai who could assist him with this?
Sorry i put the wrong info... He worked there for more than a year, less than 2 yrs... His mum is working there, n she's going to try and talk to one of the police there tomorrow if she could get any letter from them stating that they can't release a police certificate for him... I don't know if our case officer would consider this letter...
Do u think going to the Phil consulate in Dubai to ask for help would be ok?

Thanks for ur time Tangerine

Yeah, she can try to do that and have that document translated to English. She could also try to consult a lawyer, although their fees here are so high. It's still worth giving a try so as not to delay your application. Not sure about the Phil. consulate, tried calling them before for some document queries but never spoke to anyone. Hope everything goes well with your application. God Bless.

Quick question.... please help us!

RE: CFO

My wife is very near on being granted her spouse visa for australia. (we think anyway, its been over 4 months, could be any day now really).
I called the Philippine Embassy here in Australia (Perth) some months ago now, Told them of our situation (applying for spouse visa) and asked if we need to register our marriage with them.
The guy on the phone said NO because thats only if she wants to change her name on her passport.... Well she doesnt want to do this (at the moment) So we left it at that.

Now the CFO is telling her that we need to register our marriage with them in order to attend this seminar. So ive got conflicting information here.
To register our marriage with the embassy in australia is alot of stuffing around and will cost us time. Because the want original/certified copies of everything, so mailing everything backward and forward from PH is time.

My question..

Do we need to register our marriage at the Philippine Embassy in Australia in order to proceed with the CFO seminar and get the CFO sticker?

Thanks everybody, were so unclear about everything right now.

Hey Chris
I have not heard of registering the marriage here in Australia. You did of course provide the NSO marriage certificate to the Australian Embassy in Manila. I would have thought this is what the CFO are talking about. Hopefully someone with recent Philippine experience will reply as i am also interested in the response.

Hi Jayden
Try going to the timeline and search by philippines and look for when the latest CO was appointed for 309 or 300 as they both appear to be on the same timeline. Visa 309 has more applications, so may be a better starting point.

Hi, everyone! The embassy updated its processing/assessing of applications. As of January 16, they are assessing lodged applications on October 24, 2012.

Oh my, my 309 visa application lodged Sept 19, 2012 was not yet granted. Does anybody who lodged their applications on or before this date already received their visas?

My application will mark its 4th month on the 19th, hoping for a good news by then.I followed up last january 9 and received a reply on the 11th from a visa processing officer answering on behalf of my case officer. She advised that their standard processing time is 4-6 months depending on the circumstance of the application. My CO will then correspond with me in due time. Until now, my "supposedly" CO haven't contacted me.

Really praying for the good news this week!

This is good news kulots! At least we can expect that our application is being reviewed already. I lodged mine last October 2012. Hoping for some good news as well.
