Singleness certificate for your husband is from the state in Australia that he lives in.
I had to submit a singleness certificate and a Cenomar when my wife applied for a 309 visa.

Hi MarieBaird,

Godsgift is right when she said you need to get the NSO documents(your birth certificate and Cenomar or Certificate of Singleness thru online. In your acknowledgment letter, the website for NSO is indicated. The one that you have submitted to the immirgration has no bearing at all. Do it as instructed. About your partner, his certificate of singleness is from Australia or Divorced decree from Australia if he had been married. Iduno is right too.

to Mariebaird,
However, if your husband(Australian) had been married to a Fipina in his previous relationship and got married here in the Philippines. Yes, you should ask his CENOMAR from NSO.The idea is for the immigration to know how many marriages are recorded while living in the Phils with his Filipina spouse(s).
I hope this helps.

Hi! When applying for a spouse visa, did you guys have to provide an Advisory on Marriage as well?

Hi daya83,

Yes, on a PMV visa, you have to request a CENOMAR or Advisory on Marriages from NSO helpline. It is a must. Also, send your birth certificate from NSO or better request the two simultaneously and inform NSO it is for Australian visa consideration and NSO will send your request direct to Australian Embassy. NSO will give you direction on how you pay your requested documents.
I hope this helps you

Good Day Everyone!

before I registered myself to this site just now, I been reading lots of experiences about getting PMV. Which I'm now on the process as well. Somewhat this forum made me feel better for knowing I'm not the only one experiencing this so called " waiting game". I lodged my application for PMV June 28, 2013 here in Manila, and got all the necessary docs. needed. Complete as far as we know. I got an acknowledgment letter from au. immigration July 6, 2013, had my Medical together with my daughter (as she's my dependent) July 8, 2013. Assigned with a CO Sept. 9, 2013. I was requested to submit a NSO birth. Cert. of my Daughter and my CENOMAR (which I both submitted on the day of my lodgement). Just to make sure I just followed their request thru NSO online to be deliver directly to their office and just sent the trasmittal receipt from NSO. My Fiance made a follow-up last oct. 21, 2013 as he will be coming here again this December. So if in case they need necessary docs. we can start gathering them so we can pass it on time. He got a response from them "Your email has been referred to the relvant case officer. Please note that
the application is currently undergoing active assessment and there is no indication of any outstanding requirement needed at this stage in the assessment.

Should there be a need for further information, the case officer will be in touch directly.".
As much as we wanted to know if we can possibly get our visa granted early as we put on our NOIM dated Dec. 14, 2013 if they will take consideration on that. So we can have finalization of our wedding as early as now.

I'm a bit confused about 6-9months on the granting of visa when the counting will start? is it the day when you lodge your application or the date when they acknowledge your lodgement. or the first month of counting is the day when you were allocated with a case officer? We are really hoping and praying that they grant our visa by Dec. this year. Do anyone here got the same experience that they dated their NOIM during the processing period and got their visa granted ahead of time of their wedding date?

Thanks heaps and God bless everyone!

My CO however wrote back to him yesterday(Thursday) and informed him that my application is actively assessed and it takes 9 months to process. She said we are on the timeline. I noticed that applicants from US have 5-6 months waiting period ,but what about in the Phils. , where I am now? By the way, I am a Filipino, my partner is a true-blue Aussie, we lived-in together for a year in Australia but i have to come home to apply for an offshore visa and I was here last January 12, 2013. Although my partner visited me last April -May 2013 , we know just like almost all applicants here the pain from separation. I always believe that if this is God's plan for us, we will be together soon. We pray every night after we talk on skype. That is our secret of staying together -love for each other,faith in God and stay happy with a SMILE.God loves us all.
Hi Gretz,
you are just a week earlier when I lodged my application June 28, 2013 for PMV. I'm also a Filipino and my fiance is Australian since birth. I met him last dec. 2012 in Seoul Korea since I was sent by my company there. but he was just on a tourist visa in Korea just like mine, but we started communicating since Last oct. last year. He just wanted to meet me in flesh while he's on his holiday break last dec. 2012. We decided to meet again when I visited him in Australia last Mar. to May this year to see if we can lived together permanently (it wasn't my first time to apply for TV as I was also in Brisbane just last 2011 when the company sent me there as I been Travelling all over Asia bec. of my job) and that's when we decided to get PMV. he also visited me here Last June and last sept. recently. and coming here this December and spend our 2nd x'mas together in time in Philippines! and we are both hoping they grant my visa soon together with my daughter (my dependent, I'm a single parent). I noticed from other previous posts they received a msg from the immig. 5-6mons. but now they sent me msg 6-9months visa processing. My Fiance even msg them to follow up if we needed to submit necessary docs. they reply "Your email has been referred to the relvant case officer. Please note that
the application is currently undergoing active assessment and there is no indication of any outstanding requirement needed at this stage in the assessment.Should there be a need for further information, the case officer will be in touch directly." but they didn't not included the time frame of 6-9months..
I agree with you, its really hard the LDR. but it was also good to know that we are not alone in this kind of situation. I'm really glad that atleast now we can compare, share and get infos. from other applicants who have done this processing too. This waiting game is really stressful esp. all of us just want one thing, is to be with our partner the soonest we can! Thanks to everyone! And goodluck to us! hopefully they grant our visa soon! In God's perfect time He will give it to us, Amen!

Hello, sexy cola. That message was nearly a month ago :-) Anyway Good luck to us. About the time frame just start counting from the time the embassy received your application. They said if your CO is not asking for any addtl docs your application is on way, soon hopefully you will get an email saying that your visa is granted :-) God Bless us.
