Jacob and Rose Review Down Under Visa


Jacob is an Australian man who did what so many are doing these days, and that is he met and fell in love with a lady from another country. In this case he met Rose, a Filipina lady who was living in Malaysia at the time. She returned to the Philippines in time, and Jacob visited her there in Mindanao. He discusses their first meeting and the phenomena of meeting her family, which many of us can relate to.  Today they give a review of Down Under Visa, who made it possible for them to be together in Australia.



Naturally they both wished to get together in Australia so that Rose could experience Aussie life, and where they could further enhance their relationship and get used to being together on a daily basis.

They discovered that the visa process was not as simple and straight-forward as most things are in Australia, and realised that if they wanted this to work they really needed to gain the visa management skills of a professional Registered Migration Agent who had experience in dealing with visa applications from Philippines to Australia. After checking the website and watching some of the extensive collection of Down Under Visa videos, they choose Down Under Visa to ensure their future happiness.

Jacob and Rose – Down Under Visa Clients


Migration Hub – Down Under Visa’s Client Portal


They found that the visa application preparation process was still daunting with Down Under Visa, who never claimed that anything would be easy. However at least they weren’t alone with their concerns. Jacob, who like many is no computer expert, was delighted to find that he could manage the entire application visa his smart phone. Didn’t actually need a computer at all. 

Down Under Visa have an exclusive Client Portal called the Migration Hub. This means no need to trek back and forth to the office carrying mountains of paperwork. All the information and updates are there online, and the essential documents and relationship evidence (aka the “requirements”) can be easily uploaded via the Migration Hub. 


Jacob and Rose – Thank You


Thank you very much to both of them for taking the time to make this for us. Totally unexpected, and very much appreciated. It helps our newer clients and prospective clients to no end to hear ordinary Australian men and Filipina ladies telling their stories and especially showing them there is real light at the end of the tunnel if they get some professional help with something where the outcome matters so much. We wish them the very best of luck in the future, and look forward to helping them with a Partner Visa very soon.
