Is it true na it is easier to apply for a visa in Australia if you lodged it in another country?

Thanks.

^two weeks (10 working days) din sa akin when I applied online in Manila. I guess yung bilis ng approval depends on the applicant's submitted documents, travel history and the time of the year na nag-apply.

Apply ako ulit paguwi ko from my Europe trip para masama yung immig stamps ko. I'm thinking this time kung i-try ko VFS kung talagang less than one week yung processing. At kung multiple one year din mabigay sa akin ulit.

i agree with mama squeak, depends on the applicant's documents, got my 2nd visa thru VFS in just one week (year 2015), my first visa application was 2 wks processing (year 2012)

Depends din. My cousin who has lived in Japan for more than 20 years got rejected for a tourist visa. Ginawa niya nag-apply siya ng citizenship sa Japan; buti naman na-approve.

Hello mga sis,

Ask lang ako ng recommendation ng budget accommodation sa Sydney for a week's trip. I will be travelling with my son, kaya yung malapit sa CBD or sa public transpo station sana. Hindi kami after sa luxury kasi we will be out and about lang din naman most times of the day. Normally, ang usual requirement ko lang ay malinis, may private bathroom, at not saggy bed. :)

Thanks!

^saw this when I was looking for cheap accommodations. No personal experience though but they can rent by the week. Or you can also rent an apartment thru airbnb.

^^ Airbnb na lang siguro, pag backpackers kasi dito most of them are young, drunk and horny, be prepared for the noise, pero mas matino pa yata pag YHA brand (sana). Mas madami mura accommodation sa Chinatown area if you're looking for a hotel or apartment. Aaron's Hotel quite good; old but decent naman. If you see a listing within the Central Park (near UTS) sa airbnb, consider that, it's a nice and new area.

What's your budget limit per night, sis? I've observed kasi na if you're not going the hostel route, mahal talaga accommodations sa Sydney CBD area, kahit yung mga pinapa-AirBnB.

If you could book way ahead of your scheduled trip, you might be able to get discounts. Ang mga medyo pricey na hotels 'yung mga nasa area ng Pitt Street, Kent Street, malalapit sa tourist attractions and train stations.

I highly recommend Meriton Serviced Apartments kasi complete na mga gamit sa room. Even a studio apartment has a washer & dryer, oven, dishwasher, cookware, kitchenware, etc. Merong Meriton sa iba't ibang areas. If you wouldn't mind walking a bit going to the train station, reasonably priced yung nasa Campbell Street, and maluwag pa.

There's also Metro Hotel on Pitt Street. Not as nice as Meriton, pero puwede na kasi mas mura and walking distance sa lahat. Saka may kasamang buffet breakfast.

^^budget trip kami sis kaya $100/night lang ang budget ko. Pero yung na-book ko sa airbnb ay $115/night, sa may Darling Harbor pa. Malapit naman daw sa public transport. We will see.
Hanap pa ako ng ibang pwedeng tuluyan for the last two days. hehe.

Tip for visa applicants: no need to notarize your documents. colored scan lang ok na.
