Good bless!
Thank you,
So once the doors are opened its go straight to the counter in the order that the line outside was.
Does everyone in the line outside go to the counter in the same order or is it run to keep your place?

It is quite orderly from what I have been told ie you keep your place in the line. I vaguely remember something about the guard giving out numbers but hopefully someone with a more recent seminar experience in Cebu CFO will provide update here

This is the Philippines lol..
Hi Dunan,
Well in some case it's sad that still other Filipino's tolerate that system. But as far as I know and with what I experienced, no don't need to give a guard a small token of gratitude to get a number. The reason is other Filipino applicant's are smart enough to know about it so they can report and it's easy to see in CCT camera (if have in Cebu). Which in later it will be unfair to ur wife if she gets in trouble about CFO because of the gift issue.

It's not requirement in DIAC to change passport in married name. Getting passport is not a nightmare if we can follow the steps before going to DFA. Bringing & using a child is not a good idea because if they found out that it's lie, in worst scenario you will put in national Television & will have a record in DFA.Of course there's online registration to get a passport so only need to come in DFA in the scheduled date and ready the requirements. It takes only an hour in my friend and they took her a passport picture. In my old passport I got it in just 1 day through "mobile passporting", in the afternoon of the day I applied my passport is in my hand.

The good thing is there are many good news now about Philippines so in the future we hope that we are not included in high risk country for Aussi visa lol. Working as accountant here, I definitely agree that the gift system is lessen now in many Phil Department especially in Tax area. Lastly, my point is if Im a visa applicant eventough I want a quicker process for my application I will follow the right steps to avoid getting trouble that will mess the future plan with my hubby

Hi,

When I arrived in in CFO manila, because i'm late 6:30am or 7am (cant remember)? I got the last number 15 for Aussi seminar. I wait first in the other area until 10am or 9am then the guard called all the 15 CFO applicants going to Aussi to come in registration area. The number 1 or number 15 is not important i guess because after i fill up form I submitted my papers. So if you can answer quickly the questions in form you are the first in line to be interview. After interview they advised us to come back 1pm for the seminar.. In seminar i learned tips and met other Filipinas gong or have been in Aussie. CFO gave us booklet about Aussie. In the afternoon we got our certificates and remind us to go back in CFO office after we receive visa so they will stamp passport etc. The whole process was very smooth

Sorry Tresha
I think you misread it, the online registration did not apply to Fiancee, Spouses and Other Partners of Foreign Nationals. I also noticed there is only 12 slots (Cebu) per session. It is on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Hi Aussiboy, Thank u for that Maybe online registration is not applicable in our case that still applying for visa. I will check in their office too on Monday. In other case online registration is applicalble in fiance,spouse and other partners of Foreign national if holding permanent resident visa aboad. (exempt from seminar) . Kindly advise me if i can't post other forum.

[QUOTE=tresha0206;99671]Hi Aussiboy, Thank u for that Maybe online registration is not applicable in our case that still applying for visa.So as not to confuse to many people, people applying here for visa 300 &309 must do the seminar and places for seminar are given out on a first come basis. 12 for Cebu &15 for Manila

In other case online registration is applicalble in fiance,spouse and other partners of Foreign national if holding permanent resident visa aboad. (exempt from seminar) . I doubt this would apply to anyone on this thread

Though thanks for trying to identify new information and that is all we can do is to share what we find. Sometimes it is good other times not so useful
