Hi! Has anyone tried to email the immigration this week and got a reply? I emailed them last Tuesday, 25 June, and the only reply that I got was an automated one. It was stated that I'll be receiving a reply within two days, yet I haven't received any until today.

Glad that I'm not the only one who haven't received a reply from them, though it's not a good thing. Yep, I'm having my fingers-crossed na magreply na sila. Good luck on your application!

Last time i spoke with her was 2 wks ago, no addt'l documents needed and just awaiting returns of docs i submitted.. Probably verifying the docs i submitted or awaiting medical assessment from global..

Do all medical results go through global before deicsion is made?
Reply would be much appreciated.. Thanks.

I'm not sure if all medicals go to global. Ang alam ko po based sa kakabasa ko ng forums, if your medicals are being forwarded to global may findings sila na kailangan i-verify or need i-assess ng global. I'm not 100% sure about that. Yung sakin kasi hindi na finorward sa global.

All medicals are being sent to Global health and they have large amount of backlog as per embassy as I have received a reply from them 1st week of June. I emailed them again on June 25 to check the status of my application and I haven't received a reply yet, I sure will receive email next week and hoping very much to receive a goodnews.

PS Please write in using english language so everybody can relate to the topic. Thanks!

To share to everyone about backlog regarding Health clearance, here's one part of the email I have received fm the embassy 1st week of June.

" As previously advised, the results of the medical examination were sent to
Global Health in Australia via diplomatic bag. It normally takes around 3-4 weeks before information from Global Health is received but we were advised that Global Health is currently experiencing a large backlog of MOC work, thus, causing delay on the processing of the health clearances for the applicants."

Thanks pinkrishia, i was beginning to think there was something wrong with my medical but thought if there's any test that needs to be redone usually shouldnt St Luke notify clients before uploading the results to the global health queue? the one that attended to our medical said the results look all ok.. So im not really worried about it...Anyway, thats what i also thought, ALL medicals are uploaded to the global health queue..

After my medical, i sent the embassy an email 27-Mar and got this part of the reply:

"Our records show that we already received the medical results from our panel doctor.

We will be in contact should further information be required."

So, was thinking of the backlog at Global Health..

Tresha also mentioned about getting the info about Global Health when she rang up immi..

Anyway, hopefully we should hear something within next month for we will be on our 5th Month this coming 19-July

The journey

I thought I would give everyone a laugh at part of my experience with the Philippine bureaucracy.
This is just the "getting married" part, all other Government departments are very similar.

1. get marriage licence , my wifes cousin, "Aunty" is the marriage registrar in the town she was born in and will give us a license same day as we apply and I dont have to do the get married seminar.Lets do it then.
2. Get bus to her birth town, 1 hour away, meet cousin :Aunty" fill in reams of paper, meet all the other staff, Oh its lunch time we have to take 20 staff to lunch so you dont have to do the seminar.
Its now 4PM , we have the licence, get bus back to other place.
3. Get married, another story to tell some other time.
4.Take marriage licence and signed contract to City hall to get it registered.
Arrive at 8am, join long que, 10am get to counter and told need 3 photo copy's of all docs, go to 4th floor and pay for photo copts.
Join que again, 11am get to counter, where is you payment receipt?
Join que at next counter, its 12 o'clock, every one goes to lunch.
Join que for payment at 130pm, pay fee.
Join que to register marriage.
its now 330PM , get to counter, Oh!! your licence was issued in another place, need letter from Mayor and Police Chief to say you live there.
Next day, get bus to cousin "Aunty" and she tracks down the Mayor, writes letter, its now 12o'clock, take everyone to lunch.
2pm Police Chief turns up, easy , he gets cousin"Aunty" to write letter and signs it, 4PM get bus back to city.
Next day, back to City Hall and join que for register marriage, 10PM get to counter, Oh you need 2 photo copys of the letters, go to 4th floor and pay for copts, join que again, 1130am get to counter and finally think we have the system beaten, to close to lunch, take 10 staff to lunch.
2pm back at counter, marriage is registered.
But if you want it sent to NSO quickly it has to be electronically endorsed, Ahh whats that, go to another counter and they will do it and your marriage certificate will be ready to pick up at NSO in 1 week, Ok I think we should do that otherwise it takes 3 months to get the certificate from NSO.
Join another que, get to counter at 3PM, where is your Payment receipt for us to electronically send to NSO?? Bloody hell it 4pm to late today to pay.
Next day back at City Hall, join que pay money.
10PM join que to show receipt.
OK its will be electronically sent to NSO.
One week later, go to NSO at 7am and wait to join que.
9AM get to counter, show them docs, all good but where is your receipt for the NSO marriage certificate.
Join another que, get to counter and pay, its now 1130am.
Go to lunch, to late to join another que.
130PM, get to counter and finally we get the NSO marriage certificate, Oh can we get 2 copys please.
You guessed it join another que.
So anyhow we finally got 2 copies of NSO Marriage Certificate on NSO certified paper.

Now for all you foreigners that have a Filipino GF and are going to get her an Australian Visa, this is just the start of what you have to go through to get the documents that immigration want.

Good luck and don't get too mad when you are in one of the que's.
