Important news

  1. Visitor Visas (Subclass 600) - High Demand: Due to the high demand in Visitor visa subclass 600 applications, we recommend applying at least 6 weeks prior to your intended date of travel. Please ensure your application is complete and includes all supporting documentation. 
  2. Online applications processed two times faster: Online applications for Visitor Visas are processed on average two times faster than paper-based applications. Over 80% of all Visitor Visa applications are made online by applicants in the Philippines and this figure continues to grow. Lodging online also means that it is easier to track the progress of your application through ImmiAccount.  
  3. Student Visas (Subclass 500) - High Demand: Due to the high demand in Student visa subclass 600 applications, we recommend applying around 8 weeks prior to your commencement date. Please ensure your application is complete and includes all supporting documentation.

  5. Beware of Visa scams - To avoid being scammed, you can check the Register of Migration Agents on the OMARA website, to receive the protections of an OMARA registered Migration Agent.
