Regarding Medical... If anyone had any issues with the results you get notified straight away, am I right? Or do they forward it straight to Global before they let you know any issues with it? Juz curious.. :-|

Hello everyone! been reading this thread since last month.. I lodged my PMV last april 18, nso bc and cenomar from ecensus last april 19, medicals done on april 23.. Till now i have no news from them aside from the acknowledgement letter they sent me. The reason why i posted a reply to this thread is because i sent an email enquiry to them last june 3 and like all of you i've received the acknowledgement email,, but till now, there is no true response with regard to my enquiry. Does anyone of you here has the same experience. Should i be worried or not? Actually, im really anxious. But im trying to be calmmm and patientttt...

Anyway, hopefully it gets quicker..
Hopefully I had medical Jan 16, And they informed me that the medical result received by global Jan 21. From there on maybe Global Health process mine on May...Because when I called mid of May the Jan 15 medical was on process. The reason is backlog . As of this June, it's complete. I'm not sure how long is the final stage I'm thankful because i worried that they forgot my medical result

Hi Amie,

Yes, I am not 100% sure .But in my case they notify me right away after my test and before they forward the result to Global. Because I am also worried I called the Hospital and confirmed if the result was all ok and also I confirmed that they 100% upload the result in the system .

Stay Calm @ Babygirl.. Lolz..
Thisvwas extracted from the automated response when u email them:

For information about the status of your active application, please refer
to the Visa Processing Page of our website at
http://www.philippines.embassy.gov.a...ng_Times2.html.

We currently take eight (8) weeks from the date of submitting your visa
application to allocate to a case officer.

Meaning, you have to wait and probably enquire once youre on the 8th wk or thats exactly 2months after u lodged the application..

Just be patient.. Should be alright..

Thank you

Thank you everyone for answering my queries. It really helped me alot. So happy that I found this forum. I'm really anxious about this because we're now working on everything, and my questions are just piling up on my mind and it's really making me feel so anxious. If someone could help me or clear the ff things up for me please.


-this facebook chat evidence is really bothering me since we need to translate some of our chats into english right? Do we still need to translate every chat? If yes, can I just translate it myself then let someone sign it/witness it? We have a total of 44k++ messages on facebook since we've been together ever since 2010, we used to communicate through FB even when I was back home. Can I just take a screenshot of it and leave it as it is or copy paste one conversation every month as is?

-Ive gathered everything, photos up to 17 pages (6 photos on a4 paper), skype call history, oovoo call history, some YM chats, facebook chats (still pending because of my concern about that translation thing), bill statements.. etc.-- any comments on this or suggestions?

-We are working on our application and planning to lodge it this July, is there a certain date that we can apply or my partner can just go straight to VIA by walk in process?

-My partner claimed his Birth cert from NSO already, so we need to get another one from NSO via online again and address it to the Au Embassy? Or he can just attach it to our application?

-I have read it somewhere that the stat dec for sponsor's family or friends should be citizens or residents and there are lists of certain jobs as well who can sign the stat of dec form? Can I just ask a friend of mine to make a statement abt our relationship even if she is on 457 visa?

-I just got employed 1st of May, and I wonder if this will affect our application? I signed a permanent full time job contract. We decided to lodge our application this July so I can file my tax first then get the payg summary to attach it to our application? What do you guys think or suggest to this? Our parents offered help regarding back up to our finances so that wont be a problem as well as the housing situation.


Thank you very much!!!!

Okay, let's take these one at a time.

Whoa, no way do they want 44k messages. What you want to do is evidence the type of relationship you have, what your plans are for the future, and that you've stayed in contact. I would suggest no more than one message or part of a conversation per month. You want each one to demonstrate something they're looking for. Plans to go on holiday, you guys planning out sharing expenses, making plans for your wedding, talking about going out with friends together, etc. You want these to be evidence that your relationship is a genuine one, that you plan to get married, that you have shared social circles, that you have hobbies in common, etc. Anything that doesn't do that, you can ignore. And even if it does, as I said - try stick to one message or conversation except per month. If one month there are two things you absolutely have to include, go ahead.

The translation part I'm unsure about. I've read that you definitely can't translate your own official documents... they have to be done by some specific type of accredited person... but I'm not sure what the rules are for conversation. Unfortunately my guess is you might have to get that done. Perhaps call DIAC and ask? Or hopefully someone on this thread who's been through it can answer.

Do include your Skype call logs. You want to show that you talk regularly. But if you guys use text chat on Skype also, again, pick and choose those judiciously. Yahoo chats as well. If you have a phone bill statement that shows you kept in touch that way, you can include those, too. I'd imagine oovoo is the same if it's just a call log.

I don't know what VIA is so I can't answer this one.

I'll let someone with more knowledge in this area answer this one.

If you are applying for a PMV, it doesn't matter. Anyone who knows you and your partner can write a stat dec for you. If you were applying for a partner visa (820 or 309) instead of a PMV, you'd have to have two statutory declarations on Form 888 by Australian Citizens or Permanent Residents. But this isn't mandatory for PMV applicants -- it's just mandatory that you have at least 2 statutory declarations. Make sure you do get a certified copy of their ID, and that their statement is certified as well.

Thank you very much!!!!
If you're applying for a PMV from the Phils, they're capped anyway, so waiting until July to lodge won't delay you too much. Not sure if it's necessary, but it's up to you, and it could only help, I think. Even unemployed people on Centrelink benefits have been able to sponsor, so being able to demonstrate you have a contract for a full-time job will be great. If you're still worried, though, you can also get your parents to write a stat dec saying they will financially support you or provide housing if necessary.
