Basically you can attend the CFO counseling session even though you haven't gotten your visa yet. So in that case, you will just get a certificate, and you can come back later when you get your visa to get a CFO sticker on your passport.

You can attend during the wait to get your visa or after getting your visa. Personally I think it's better to do it before you get your visa not after. Doing it after getting a visa means having to wait longer before you can travel to Australia... and also risk delays... (counseling session full etc)

The requirements and Australian time sessions are on that website and I believe it's a first come first serve.
This is interesting.haven't heard of CFO until now. So basically allI need to do is have myself registered and attend the seminar?

The counseling for Australia is Monday and thursday 2:00-5:00pm first come first serve basis so it's better to be there early. It also depends on the counselor if he/she will give you the certificate on the same day. Pls contact CFO or visit their website to see the requirements that you needed
Wow that was rude. If this was needed at the airport then shouldn't all be informed about it?

My fiancee did her medical the other week in Makati and it was about 4500peso. I hear it ranges from 4000 to 5000peso. Also take into account that if extra tests are needed, that's also an extra cost. Usually it's Xray, blood, urine and a body examination.

About the CFO, just bring all the required documents and come EARLY to the CFO Manila or Cebu office. It's a first come first serve so there's no booking in advance.

Session goes for about 3-4 hours.

Yeah it's a bit funny how they don't mention it on their websites or anything.

I've heard about that situation one too many times also. Getting stuck/denied at the airport due to not having CFO sticker.

Hi guys, please include Australian embassy's official website in your references: Visas and Migration - Australian Embassy

I believe many questions (e.g. Fees, NSO, Exit Requirements (CFO)) asked here in the thread had been answered there already.

Whats bad about the CFO which you need to attend > when migrating to Australia is you can not book to attend, 'First in best dressed'at both locations Manila / Cebu, going to suggest my lovely lady visit her cousins and use Cebu I think more chance of getting in. If I remember rightly I think the class only holds 60 positions daily. from 2pm - 4pm. Bit of paper work and more passport photos to take etc

ps dont forget your departure Airport TAX too
