Sending Philipino FDW to Australia to visit my mother?

Postby PNGMK » Thu, 07 Jul 2016 3:36 pm

My lovely helper and my mother get along extremely well. My mother would like M to visit her in Perth. I guess I need a visa... anyone have any previous experience in getting a visa for an FDW going to Oz? No, she won't be working - she'll be on her annual leave.

Convincing the OZ High Commission that her stay will be temporary is the key.

Of late, the OZ High Comm is a bit relaxed.

Know a few who took their helper to Au and elsewhere.

It would work, just ask the HC for all supporting documents needed.

Philippine passport holders should be able to apply online for a Visitor Visa (subclass 600) to Australia.
