    This part is quite simple as Via center says. the first 2 we might possibly cant have. number 3 - just provide nso birth certificates/passport of your family and also if one of them is working, include them as your affidavit of support. The 4th one is your passport. the 5th one can be anything from house, to car ownership.

    hope this helps.;-)

    Problem solved! Thanks!

    Would like to ask for help from you guys. Under the subclass 600 Visitor Visa, for BP students, should we be applying under the business stream or tourist stream? Would there be any advantageous difference between the 2?

    If you apply under the tourist stream, one of the restrictions of that visa is that you will not be able to undertake any study

    Hey guys, would like to ask. Would everyone applying for the visitor visa/a.k.a. 456 visa need an agency to process their visa? or could I just do this by myself and just apply through via center? I have called up global training center..apparently an agency for ETEA and acfe. I wanted to avail their assistance in applying for visa and wanted to ask how much would they charge me for their assistance. Anyway, we discussed some things and she said that she's shocked that lonsdale didn't give me an agency to go and consult with because it is needed so that i can get a guarantee of getting the visa.

    Is this true? has anyone here applied for a visa by themselves only or all of the people who went to australia using the 456 visa had help with some sort of agency?

    Please please reply anyone out there...i am almost finished with my document gathering for the visitor visa but now...i am hesitating if i should rather concentrate my efforts in looking for an agency.

    Thank you so much!

    Possibly because Lonsdale/Alpine do not want people ripped off, when everybody here know applying for a visa is a matter of filling out a form on the net, then taking directions from there.

    Nearly everyone of these forums does it themselves, ACFE and ETEA are private providers, so helping out others in their business, if someone will pay is part of business. I'll scratch you back, if you scratch mine!!
    Personally having a third wheel dealing with important stuff in my life and paying big money for it, would drive my crazy with the delays etc.

    Give this a thought, all visitors to Australia, from the UK, USA, Canada and many other countries, would not even think of asking some agent to deal with their paperwork for a visa to another country, when they could do themselves. Money is precious and you need it for the trip itself.
    ...and it is on the immi website somewhere,....those that use an agent to apply for visa's are no more successful in getting them than those that apply for themselves.

    Thank you so much for your insight Ceridwyn. When you are isolated and doing it all alone, asking people through forums for advises, at times, one could easily doubt if this is the right path.

    Anyway, thanks. You have a point and have encouraged me to continue with what I have been doing. ;-)

    Ikokos philippines and idp do not charge a thing. They can help u with visa processing. They can also help you which school is the best for you.

    These agencies are directly hired by the school to provide assistance to their future students so the school pays them. However I agree that you should always be the one in control of your documents and not some third party. I believe that these consultancy agencies here are just ripping ppl of their money. U can process your own papers.
