Hi everyone. This is my first post. My wife and I lodged our application for her partner visa yesterday at the VIA centre in Manila. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has provided information and advice about their experiences. The information here has certainly been of assistance.
Best Regards,
Ed.

In there you will have all the inmformation you need to do in filing this kind of visa. The second option, is get a migration lawyer,he knows the answer best based on the parneter's visa booklet as revised and based on hios experience.

Let me know if this helps you. Thank you

Hi! Thank you very much for the advice a migration agent told us to get an offshore spouse visa and a tourist visa. My husband and I have decided not to get a migration agent because it cost a lot. I have all the docs that I needed certified by a police officer in Perth. I also have this statutory declaration signed by his older sister and dad. Do you think it will be okay? Thank you

So what I suggest is read all the information for the partner visa that is on the immigration web site, print as much of the relevant information and read,read ,read.
You will have to provide lots of proof that the relationship is genuine.
Letters from friends, photos of you together,copies of airline tickets and boarding passes, copy of transfers of any money he has sent you and lots more.
After you have read the information on the immi web site come back here and ask questions, you will get lots of help from people that have been through the precess.
OR get an immigration agent to put your application together, but make sure the agent is registered with Australian Immigration.


Thanks iduno! A migration agent told me to apply for that visa too. He told us to get an offshore partner visa and tourist visa so I can wait for my visa while I'm in Australia. So far I have gathered all the docs I needed like the statutory declaration signed my his dad and sister, our pictures together, his airline ticket and boarding pass. I even asked for the receipt of my ring and receipt from the hotel we booked in while he was here. I also have the receipt from the money order where he sends me the money. Were almost done with all the docs we needed, were just waiting for my passport to be renewed so he can send them already.

I am reading some convos here and it really helped me. Thank you very much to my friend who brought me here

The lady I met on CFO last Thursday said it only took 6months for her to get her visa. I hope you can get yours early too

Wow that's good then. I hope me too, because i was really disappointed before when my tourist visa was refused hope not in my PMV application.
Anyway my question is "it is possible that they will refuse a PMV application? "

We need to be positive anyway, don't forget your CFO sticker if you need one. You can ask Commission on Filipino overseas, it's near quirino lrt station

We foolishly lodged a 309 spousal application only, but the CO automatically attached the 100 herself..so im sure if you pass the criteria, the embassy are aware of that....or maybe we were just lucky......

A visa 300 hopefully will be granted. I'm still waiting for the Acknowledgement letter, its been 9 days today since we lodged my application. Do I need to email the embassy now to ask if they have received my application yet?
