Down Under Visa Clients – Telling their story


Meet Kim, Nice and Chance – Down Under Visa clients



Kim contacted Down Under Visa in the middle of the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic, while borders were closed and most Government offices and courts in the Philippines were either closed or running with a skeleton staff. All he wanted was to have his family back together so they became Down Under Visa clients. I won’t go into details for the purposes of discretion, but there were paperwork issues that caused a lot of frustration.

Kim speaks of losing his temper and wanting to go into battle, but to our (Down Under Visa’s) relief he was wise enough to let sense prevail. We managed to get through some challenging issues and got them the visas they needed so they could be together after so long apart. Down Under Visa take great pride in the fact we didn’t turn tail and run when COVID hit and the light at the end of the tunnel was dim.

We had a duty to Down Under Visa clients, both existing and new, to do whatever we could to deal with what many considered impossible circumstances. Our clients…..ALL Australian Filipina couples…..never gave up on each other, and there was no way we would let them down. Very proud to get this video today.

Yes of course we love hearing good things about us, but it gives us a sense of purpose seeing a great family like this back together where they should be and without that fear that hung over them for so long. Kids should be with their dads! Loving couples should be able to wake up next to each other every day.
