Simple visa applications to Australia

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

If you think I’ll be showing you the way to simple visa applications (partner visas and tourist visas), you may be initially disappointed. But if you read on, you will see that I’m merely being honest with you. Australian visa applications are assessed in line with Australian migration law, and therefore not simple at all. Less of a walk in the park, and closer to the Ministry of Silly Walks (to the Monty Python fans out there). If you want a positive result, I suggest strongly that you get some help.

Philippines to Australia – The Journey in video

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

We at Down Under Visa manage partner visas for Australian Filipina couples. Australian men fall madly in love with ladies in the Philippines. Who can blame them? Sweetest and most caring ladies in the entire world, even if I’m a bit biased. But yes, when they fall in love with their Filipina girl, they track us down and say “Jeff, I can’t stand being without her. Can you help?” And we do. Fiancée visa applications, also known as prospective marriage visas. And spouse visas (spousal visas, as some call them), which are officially known as partner visas…..both onshore and offshore. We guide, prepare and manage applications for these couples from the time they first contact us right through to when the visa is granted. (more…)

In this week’s episode of our Weekly Q&A one participant asked Our current tourist visa is running out, and we want to apply for an onshore partner visa.

The exact question was:

Our current tourist visa is running out, and we want to apply for an onshore partner visa.

We are in Australian on an onshore tourist visa, and it’s running out in March. We want to apply for an onshore partner visa, and are worried we will run out of time. We don’t have all of our documents. Can this be done? This is a common scenario for many Australian Filipina couples when they are not well organised, and the problem is compounded by the fact that Australian partner visas are complicated and rush-jobs are more likely to meet with a refusal.

Australian visa grants from Manila

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

The topic of visa grants from the Australian Embassy in Manila has been a positive one lately, I must say. Lots of good news for a lot of Down Under Visa clients, and lots of lovely ladies heading to Australia from the Philippines. Our usual high success rate remains in place, of course. And I have to say, the Embassy staff have been hard-working and highly efficient for the last 3 – 4 months. (more…)

Can we apply for visitor visa then onshore partner visa?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR THE ANSWER!

 

 

In this week’s episode of our Weekly Q&A one participant asked Can we apply for visitor visa then onshore partner visa?

 

The exact question was:

Can you apply for a visitor visa (tourist visa) in the Philippines with the intention of going to Australia and applying for an onshore partner visa? Is this legitimate grounds for a visitor visa?

Once upon a time it was impossible to do this, because practically all tourist visas from Philippines to Australia had “No Further Stay” Conditions on them, which prevented further applications inside Australia. This is very unusual these days, and most are able to apply for further visas inside Australia, including partner visas. Is it OK to apply for a visitor visa and them apply for a partner visa once you arrive? Please watch the video and benefit from the experience of Migration Agents who specialise in partner visas for Australian Filipina couples.

Australian Citizenship By Descent – Can I apply for Australian citizenship for my son?

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR THE ANSWER!

 

In this week’s episode of our Weekly Q&A
One participant asked Australian Citizenship By Descent – Can I apply for Australian citizenship for my son?

The exact question was:

What is Australian Citizenship by Descent? If I have a child in the Philippines to an Australian man, can I apply for Citizenship for the child?

Australian Citizenship by Descent is a great gift to a child, and it ensures they can enter and leave Australia freely for the rest of their lives. It gives them all the same rights as any Australian Citizen, and if you have a child with one biological parent who is an Australian Citizen you should speak to Down Under Visa about getting this organised as soon as possible.
