Greetings to all Down Under Visa clients, old, current and pending!
A few quick updates today.
Holy Week 2021 – Public Holidays (affecting Down Under Visa)
Thursday (1st April), Friday and Saturday are Public Holidays in the Philippines!
So, the Down Under Visa office will be closed. Holy Week. No Down Under Visa office staff.
How about Jeff? Well, Jeff doesn’t take too many holidays. I’ll be here to answer emails, but seriously if you want to know ADMIN questions then I can’t answer them because I have no one I can ask. So if you can stick to the “Can I get a visa from you, Jeff?” questions I’d be most happy to answer.
Anyone with pending deadlines? We never miss deadlines! Never happened ever, and won’t happen now. You are in safe hands, even during our busy time (note: LAST WEEK’s POST).
So to those of you who are observing Holy Week (and to Australians who head out on the road and drive too fast!), I wish you a safe, peaceful and holy Easter!

NBI Clearances from Australia – Need help?
For years we didn’t get involved in this. It means a physical trip into Manila and standing in line in a very crowded hellhole of an office. I certainly don’t want to do it, and we can’t spare a staff member for an entire day of commuting.
However it’s since become more difficult. Harder for relatives to travel to Manila, and basically all of the banks in Australia are not issuing international bank drafts anymore. And the NBI still expect cash on the spot! No online ordering or payments. And it’s a multi-step process too, making it one of the more annoying police clearances to organise from outside Philippines.
Well, we now DO have a staff member who can do this. And we will give you clear guidance as to what you need so there isn’t a serious off stuffups along the way.
So please CLICK HERE for further information on NBI Clearance organising! We’re happy to help.
