So exciting and satisfying to read all these good stories of Visa Approvals, and hopefully in the coming months I will be able to share my experience and success story too.

I am Filipino/Australian and my wife (Filipina) will be submitting her Spouse Visa application in the next few weeks via courier in Makati Office, and and just making sure we have all our evidence complete. We have been together for 3 years now and have a 2 year old daughter (Australian by Descent).

I was wondering anyone can give us some advised on the best way to submit the application and supporting documents? (eg. in a manila folder, or folio etc). I have read to avoid plastic pockets as its annoying for the case officer. Is it good to divide the different sections of evidence to make it easier for the CO?

Any other tips before we submit will be very helpful and appreciated.
When I lodged in via Makati i put my documents in long brown envelope but due too not presentable coz its bit crumpled holding it ill buy the long brown envelop cost 5 pesos i think in via center makati.The agent are very nice because they will help you to organise all the documents and you can ask the form you filled up if your not sure about it,,

Thank you very much for the tip xeelah.

Also another question for submitting the Partner Visa, does my wife need to submit Form 80 (Character Assessment) or is not required until requested by the CO?

Thank You ABC, I'll advise my wife to buy something similar in National Bookstore as she will be calling VIA to arrange pickup as she is staying the in province.

When I did my PMV, I did not submit form 80 nor was I asked to submit one.. But for my Partner 820, I've included form 80 with my application. I reckon you just hand in form 80 along with your other documents and not wait for your CO to ask for it. Saves you and your CO more time..

Cheers

When my last email to my former co he told me that he can't finalise my visa coz I'm in Australia and he asked about the details of my departure so I think this is the sign that application is ok and need to go back
