Lelit, as you are now in Cairns, I suggest that you meet with Mila, the owner of Jambo Bakery on Reservoir Road, Manoora. She should be able to give you some advice on your visa problems. If not she might refer you to me.

Lelit - If your boyfriend won't get a divorce, in my opinion, you would be better off looking for a different guy that is not married. Be open about it with your current boyfriend. Find out what his intentions are. If he is content with his present situation explain to him that a long distance relationship will not work for you, that you need someone who is able to marry you so you can live together permanently with your husband. Prepare yourself, maybe this guy is not for you. If he understands what you need and he won't (or can't) give it to you, maybe you can part as friends. Since you are already in Australia you could look around for a nice single guy.

....i never fly before never travel and this is my first time to travel in another country ....

You are a very brave young woman. I remember the first flight my Boholana beauty took. It was from Cebu to Palawan. She was like a scared little rabbit on her first flight.

 

Now my girl loves flying. She has flown to Singapore, KL, Jakarta, Sandakan and Hong Kong following me around when I am at work in those places. I think she is now addicted to flying.

Mr Lee, Mike and Poby, thanks guys for the welcome and advice, all taken on board.

 

Lelit, agree that it is possible as a poster has mentioned above to get a further 3 month extension on your tourist visa, but I would not hold my breath of getting another tourist visa in a hurry back in the Philippines, as I know many guys that tried to bring their gf's on tourist visa's that were refused, in happier times my ex-wife and I bought her sister here 4 times to visit in which she always returned to the PI as per visa, on the 5th try was refused outright as the Australian Embassy in Manila said that being single posed the risk that she would breach the visa rules and not return, this after being here 4 times before, go figure.

 

I am very aware of the different scams in the PI, having lived in Manila before, I have been to Cebu City about 5 times and always stayed at the Cebu Plaza which I understand has changed names now. anyway Lelit I wish you all the best and hope everything works out for you in the future, but untill your bf gets a divorce can't see it happening.

My first post on these forums as well, if your guy wants a divorce he can get it easy here in Australia, having just gone through this with my now ex- filipina wife after 18 years of what I thought was a happy marriage who then took off with a mega rich boyfriend which I now have found out she was seeing for 7 months before, came to an aggreement to back date our seperation, and went together to the Federal Court to apply for divorce, cost A$405 in all and we both got our final decrees just 8 weeks later, as I have now turned 66 and on the senior pension, this has been a devastating time in my life, and am in the process of moving to the Philippines to live, as the Australian age pension is A$14,216 a year translates to P582,856 a year or P48,571 a month, by adding A$5000,00 to this out of my savings will give me P,654 a month to live in the PI (still trying to work out if this is enough).

 

There is only the one law here in Australia regarding divorce and that is that the parties have been separated for one year and a day, and either party can apply to the Federal Court, and it is an automatic process, and should be finalised by 7-12 weeks. Hope this info helps

 

Have been lurking on this site for the past couple of months and read daily and find it very informative, the people posting here are a good cross section of what living in Cebu City and near by is like, I would like to tell you all I appreciate the input you so freely give and look forward to meeting some of the expats there when I arrive.

 

I lived before in Manila for 5 years (1987-1992) so can well understand some of the problems there that occur.

Hi Ian :)

Have you checked on Australian pensions laws and rules for living overseas,I do recall reading somewhere that you will not receive an aged pension if you are not living in Australia after a period of time.

Best to make sure of these things first.

Hi Tom, yes the age pension can be paid indefinitley while living overseas, you probably was reading about the disability pension and some others which only allow 13 weeks overseas.

hi Ian, thank you for the reply as of now i will not think about it too much maybe we should find out what visa suit me so i can stay here in australia for longer stay. about tourist visa i think if have all complete requirements i think no problem for that bec. we have all requirements to pass as a proof...i am still searching here and find out what visa suit me so i can go back to australia for longer stay and can work, my bf have a small business here as a retailer my question is it posible that he can use a sponsorship visa for me so i can stay here in australia for longer stay? what do you think ian of this opinion... thanks lelit

.... my question is it posible that he can use a sponsorship visa for me so i can stay here in australia for longer stay? ....

The short answer is no. For an Australian employer to sponsor you as a worker, you must be a formally qualified professional (in an acceptable field) or a formally qualified skilled worker (in an acceptable field).

 

There is also a sponsored family visitor visa available for visiting family. For Jim to sponsor you for this, he (Jim) must be either your parent, child, adopted child, spouse, brother, sister, grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle niece, nephew, or 'step' equivalent of any of these. An alternative is if Jim can get a member of an Australian parliament (Commonwealth, State or Territory) or a local government mayor to sponsor you. This last option is most unlikely (but not impossible).

 

A sponsored family visitor visa has the same restrictions (3 or 6 months stay and no work) as a normal tourist visa.

 

I'm sorry Lelit, from what you have told us, the only real options you have until Jim gets a divorce are the tourist visas. There is no other way around this problem.

To tell you the truth, there is no reason why your BF cannot marry you, other than he DOES NOT want to.

 

He can get a divorce in 2/3 months very easily, no BS (bulls***) business partnership story with his EX has anything to do with it.

 

Lose him.
