Guys what do you think I need to do regarding this matter. I don't wanna go back to the Philippines so is there any other visas I can use to be able to stay here. Your input will be highly appreciated.
sad to hear that ... anyway you cannot apply any visa i reckon, you need to comeback in the Philippines because your visa is PMV it allows you to stay for marriage purposes but since your relationship doesn't work well you need to come back the same as Temporary/Permanent Visa if the Relationship doesn't work within 2 years.

However up until now i haven't heard/received anything from them. I constantly sent e-mail inquiring the status of my application. As expected, they always told me to wait. At first, after 28 days, then after 6-8 weeks then the last was to wait for 2-3 months.

Do you get the same response from them? Its been 9 weeks since my application was acknowledged. How long did your application allocated to CO? Your opinions and comments are highly appreciated.

Thank you.
Mye
hello myleen_you,
I got same reply from the embassy that we have to wait 2-3 month for CO allocation and I guess all we need to do is wait.. we lodge our application same month.. Keep me posted aye...

I'll send another follow up after my 3rd month.

As of 15 May 2012, the Visa and Immigration Office is processing/assessing/allocating applications lodged for Partner Visa Applications (309, 300) is 12 January 2012.. same date they have last month

Hello everybody!

I came across this forum yesterday as I was already impatient and worried with my spouse visa application. Me and my children have been staying in Singapore for 8 years now, had my annulment in the Philippines June 2011, married my Aussie husband December 2011 here in Singapore and filed for the class 309 on that same month here in Singapore.

So...........its been 5 months now. My application states that processing time is 5-8 months. I was able to talk to my Case Officer yesterday and found out why its taking so long. She said that they are verifying my annulment in the Phils and Phils is taking ages to reply.

Anybody here who has the same story: annuledin the Phils and applied for class 309 outside the Phils? My hubby will be coming over next week so Im wondering if it would be best if he calls the Case Officer again and ask her in what office/dept/person are they waiting the reply from...and if we could just follow it up in the Phils.

Sorry fellow Pinays..from experience I know how the govt employees move there and that sometimes it is necessary to give a bribe to make them move fast.

Any input from the group?

We find that it seems, PMV is the easiest way to be with him. We are planning to get married in Australia in civil with family and close friends only. I would like to ask, as I have been searching what are really the requirements for PMV and what is the first step the we should do? When do we need to file the NOIM? Do we need to file the application here in SG or Philippines? He is in australia right now and I am in Singapore. I called the SG australlia emabssy yesterday and they told me that processing will take 6 to 8 months... Can any filipina/filipino help me?


thanks...
Hi Lovelycaterpillar!

Like you I am here in Singapore. However, I am a Permanent Resident here for 7 years already.

When we lodged our class 309 here in Singapore last December, I was asked by the officer if I am a PR and for how long...what is my work (I am a Techincal Consultant). Not sure if it is a factor but after that she asked me to prepare the Medical Cert and Police Clearance.

I would think that the Singapore office could process it faster compared to the one in the Philippines (unless they require info/verification from the Philippines like my case).

Hello Madel. I think the website does not update its database. Let's just hope they really not, coz if they were, too bad for us. Keep me posted as well with the status of your application.

The biological father abandoned them before birth, has never paid support, has visited the child 4 times in nearly 7 years ... and is unfortunately named on the birth certificate.

Has anyone been through a similar situation? Any advice appreciated.
Yes a court order is necessary for a minor.

It may be difficult to get one since she is outside the Phils but it is possible .. It takes time and patience, plus plane fare to keep going back to the Phils . It may also help if somebody there could do the follow up for her (maybe her mother or siblings?).

I am here in Singapore but managed to get my annulment in the Phils. It wasnt easy.

Smile Spousal Visa

Hey everyone! My application for spousal visa was lodged last 28 February and 2 weeks after that I did my medical examination. We had a civil wedding last Jan 7 and we had a big wedding last April 14 and our agency sent an email to the embassy about the 2nd wedding we just had. My husband and I thought that by mid-May or late May we will be allocated to a case officer already but as I've seen on the site, sad to say, it is still Jan 12, same as last month's update, we haven't received anything from the embassy. Hopefully by early June, we'll receive an email. Hopefully. Good luck to us! I've been reading the posts on this thread by the way. My husband led me to this site. Though he had read like everything. Goodnight everyone!

Website update on processing time

To all those waiting for news from the Philippines Visa office, they failed to update the date for the Partner visa processing when they posted last 15 May 2012.

As of today, (17 May, 2012) they made correction and they are now looking at applications lodge 27 February 2012.

You can check out the website for the information

Cheers

Wooh!, thanks for the post. Thank you God. Me and my hubby are so happy. Hopefully by tomorrow or within this day we will have a case officer, and once we have one, it could be anytime that we will have the visa..

How long does it take to be given a visa once you have a CO already? Will it take most likely a month? I know it's upon the discretion of the CO, but just maybe the average time? So far we sent good proofs, and we are ready to give some more proofs. What do you think? Thank you. God bless!

Hi tammy2tommy,

Im not really sure exactly how long it takes for the approval once a CO has been assign. Like many of the people in this forum, we can only guess the timeframe.

We too are confident that we have provided them all the evidences that we can produce to substantiate our marriage and relationship is genuine.

Just inform us if you already have a CO and for sure ours will be following soon after yours.

Cheers
