Re: #8 - I'm not sure. I left that blank because I've never been to Australia. I think they're asking when you first entered if you're onshore right now - but don't quote me on that. Maybe you should ring up DIAC and ask?

#25 Since you're a PMV applicant the "separately and apart" thing isn't as crucial - that's more for folks who are defacto/spouse. I just wrote something general here that said we'd been separated since he moved to Sydney for his job and the dates. You could probably just write something general about the dates you were separated and why.

I went to cfo today around 330am and im on number 6, around 7am the gate was open already then the frontdesk asked me if my partner is australian citizen or filipino citizen with permanent resident. The front desk told me that i should attend the PDOS bec my fiance is still a filipino citizen(permanent resident) which is scheduled during tuesday and friday 2-5pm. So i will be back again tomorow.. whew.. watta hassle monday for me. nice to knw..


So if your partner or spouse is australian citizen you should attend the monday and thursday schedule (15slots) with one on one session.but if your partner is still a filipino citizen a permanent resident visa holder, you should attend PDOS during tuesday and friday 2-5pm (60slots) no one on one session.

FYI Godbless everyone, i hope i will get my cfo certificate and sticker tomorow!!!! Wheeeee!

Thank you for the info Eleigh. My wife is a Filipino citizen with PR visa in Australia. It's good to know that I'll be attending the PDOS session with 60 slots.

Hi Woody
Tiger are one of the cheapest though there is a television show here about bad airline experiences. Tiger is often starring. All I will say is get there very early and be prepared for delays

Hi Aussieboy
I have been doin a lot of searching for flights and when u add all taxes and everything for a final amount the cheapest i could find was Qantas they are around 2k for a return trip from manilla to Sydney for my fiance and her son , they fly Direct and have a 30kg bag limit which will come in handy
so when our tourist visa ready which should be in a month we will get there flights through them i cant wait for my fiance and her son to come out like everyone here we miss each other soo much
our application for PMV should be in this week and we hoping and praying our is quick and easy

cheers
Woody

Same with me, will be travelling with 3 kids (one way) and was gonna buy jetstar tickets but by the time i add up everything (bundle for meals and welcome kit) it would cost us around $2k for all of us, and inflight snacks you have to buy it. So we decided to book the next option which is Malaysian Air, at least its full service.. In case the kids wanted snacks or drinks, in flight, we dont have to pay for it.. Flight might be a bit longer, we could just spend it taking photos around the airport and on the plane for this will be my kids first int'l trip together, i dont want any hassles.. Lolzz

Yeh the tiger airways was like jetstar cheap fare but they charge you for anything and everything so cost just the same and as you say you need to buy your meals and i think you had to pay for luggage and on one there was a maximum of 15kg not enough lol
Qantas are good prices and you can have 30kg check in luggage which i thought would come in very handy

yes with 3 kids on your own you want as hassle free trip as you can
