may ask what is the best time to arrive at cfo manila to be included in 15 slots?

thanks!
I'm not really sure if what's the best time to go there but I must say, the earlier, the better. Some say they arrived at CFO Manila at around 3am and they got 3rd slot. So there were two others who went there earlier than 3am.

Yes jay that's for 2-5pm counseling schedule,,, its a first come first serve basis and since they only give 15 slots u need to be early also, i arrived there 430am ... and guess what? I was number 12,,, ...there are lots of people falling in line there, so u better ask one by one what country they are or else u will end up falling in line for nothing...

I was so hoping we'd see this avalanche of PMV approvals early this month! So happy for all of you! (And totally jealous of how fast some of you are getting your PMVs. LOL!)

Yes I also am happy for everyone, in case I missed someone along the way. there seems to have been a lot of pages of approvals over the past couple of days.

Hey CG If you are jealous what does that make me?? Just crazy I think, not to mention I could not even contact my fiancée, must be a brown out (no electricity) and her phone has died aahh and she is the contact for the approval from the embassy. double aahh So for the new people ensure you put your partner on as being able to contact the embassy

Not a case of jealousy at all, its just trying to wrap your head around the disproportionate timeframe in visa grants..

my case married n lived together 5 years continuous, no issue re relationship, in fact embassy changed the 309 to 100 on their own accord, 4 years age difference, 1 request for additional doc which was over something so trivial, no financial issues in regards to settling in Oz, yet we are in our 7th. month of waiting....

So you can appreciate that even though we love to see the visa grants esp the super quick ones it also starts the questioning as to why...

Hi Lady J

It is a strange one this one and just shows the amazing administrative capabilities
The time range being experienced to attend is crazy,
As mentioned some arrived at 3am and got in easily
I pushed my love to go there by 5am, and she was about number 10
In fact the class she attended was over filled to 17.

My suggestion, is get there by 5am
There are many US applicants there, so check with people waiting in line
Have a backup plan to attend the other option day (just in case)

And for those who's still in the waiting game-- just keep the faith and believe in Him I know in time yours will be next in line

God bless us all!
