Applying for the Australian PMV subclass 300

Applying for the Australian Prospective Marriage Visa [PMV subclass 300]

Applications for the Australian Prospective Marriage Visa [PMV] are normally done online via the Australian Governments Immigration website. (online.immi.gov.au/lusc/login)

When you begin the application, most of it is self explanatory, and you will complete what was the old paper based form 47SP, as part of the online application.

Your sponsor will do the same with the old Form 40SP, when he/she does the sponsor part. This can be done in the same IMMI account as yours.

You will need to get a new Birth Certificate and a CENOMAR from the PSA, and that must be sent direct to the Australian embassy, from the PSA. (psa.gov.ph/…/birth-certificate) and (psa.gov.ph/…/cenomar)

CENOMAR is a Certificate of No Marriage Record. It is a certification issued by the PSA stating that a person has not contracted any marriage. It is also called a certificate of No Record of Marriage or Certificate of Singleness.

The application does have instructions for that, with exactly what to put on the request form to the PSA.

Two people need to complete form 888’s, or similar, to confirm that they know of the existence of the relationship. That can often be the sponsors relatives.

You also need to arrange a Notice of Intended Marriage form (NOIM), which can be done by most Australian Marriage Celebrants. Probably best to be the one you will use to do your marriage.
If you set a date a year after application, you can always change it later, just make sure your Marriage Celebrant is aware of that possibility.

The rest is mainly proof that you know each other and have met at least once, but have had plenty of other contact.

The more proof should mean a faster processing time.

Filipino Married in Australia changing Middle name to Maiden name

Philippine Name Change Regulations for Filipina Marriage in Australia

Married applicants who are already using their married names in some of their Australian-issued identification cards/documents adopting Australian regulations are advised to apply for a Change of Name with the Australian Registry of Births, Deaths, and Marriages in the State/Territory where they reside to harmonise records with the name reflected on their Philippine passport, using Philippine regulations.

Filipina Married in Australia changing Middle name to Maiden name

Philippine Name Change Regulations for Filipina Marriage

Under Philippine regulations, for single women and men, the middle name refers to the Surname of the person’s mother.

The processing of Philippine passports is guided by the Philippine Passport Act of 1996 and other relevant regulations, including the Civil Code of the Philippines.
Married applicants who wish to use the surnames of their husbands in their passports are advised that the following format will be used in accordance with Article 370 of the Civil Code of the Philippines which states that:

“A married woman may use:
(1) Her maiden first name and surname and add her husband’s surname,”

Once a woman marries and decides to use the surname of her husband, the maiden middle name (i.e. Santos) is automatically dropped and is replaced by her maiden surname (i.e. Cruz).

Australian Name Change Regulations for Filipina Marriage

In Australia, a person’s middle name refers to his second name, it is not a family name.
Applying Australian regulation to Juana Santos Cruz who marries John Doe, she drops her maiden surname (i.e. Cruz) and instead carries her maiden middle name (i.e Santos) making her new full name, Juana Santos Doe. This is contrary to Philippine Laws.
As such, this regulation cannot be applied to a Philippine passport.

Married applicants who are already using their married names in some of their Australian-issued identification cards/documents adopting Australian regulations are advised to apply for a Change of Name with the Australian Registry of Births, Deaths, and Marriages in the State/Territory where they reside to harmonise records with the name reflected on their Philippine passport.

Australian Registry of Births, Deaths, and Marriages:

Births, Deaths and Marriages in the ACT
Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in NSW
Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in the NT
Births, Deaths, Marriages and Divorces in Qld

Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in Tas
Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in Vic
Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in WA

Republic Act 386 The Civil Code of the Philippines Articles 364-380

Article 370 of the Civil Code states:
A married woman may use:
(1) Her maiden first name and surname and add her husband’s surname, or
(2) Her maiden first name and her husband’s surname or
(3) Her husband’s full name, but prefixing a word indicating that she is his wife, such as “Mrs.”

There are certain provisions under the law, which limit the instances when a married woman who has already opted to use her husband’s surname to revert to the use her maiden name, such as those provided under Republic Act No. 8239 or the Philippine Passport Act of 1996.

A Married woman is not obliged to use her husband’s surname

In the case of Maria Virginia V. Remo vs. The Honorable Secretary of Foreign Affairs (G.R. No. 169202, March 5, 2010), the Supreme Court explained:

A married woman has an option, but not a duty, to use the surname of the husband in any of the ways provided by Article 370 of the Civil Code. She is therefore allowed to use not only any of the three names provided in Article 370, but also her maiden name upon marriage.
She is not prohibited from continuously using her maiden name once she is married because when a woman marries, she does not change her name but only her civil status. Further, this interpretation is in consonance with the principle that surnames indicate descent.”

It is settled in the aforesaid case, however, that if a married woman started to use the surname of her husband in her passport, she cannot revert to the use of her maiden name unless her marriage to her husband has already been annulled, declared null and void or she was divorced by her husband and the divorce was already recognized in the Philippines.

Marriage, Birth Certificate or CENOMAR for Australian Migration

Originals of Marriage, Birth and Single Certificates for Australia Immigration

When applying for Migration to Australia the requirements for some Visas include the Birth Certificate and Marriage or CENOMAR Certificates.

The online application process includes an option to upload these documents, which is easy to do by scanning them in.
However, many applicants receive an email to ask for these again, at some stage during the process

If we read the Embassy webpage on this subject, we can see why:

Applying for a marriage / birth certificate or CENOMAR from the National Statistics Office?

Clients should only apply for an NSO document(s), once a visa application has been submitted, and at the request of a case officer.

Clients need to include a file number or Health (HAP ID) number when applying for an NSO document. See, applying for NSO documents. The documents are sent directly to the Australian Embassy in Manila. This ensures that the most recent and complete information is provided from NSO and avoids additional checks on individually submitted documents which may lead to a delay in the processing of the application.

Please note that we only accept NSO documents obtained using this process.

There is a standard process for submitting Philippines Statistics Authority (formerly National Statistics Office or NSO) documents such as birth or marriage certificates.

Please note that we only accept PSA documents obtained using the process outlined below. If the documents are not obtained through this method, there are likely to be delays in processing and the application may result in a refusal for non-compliance.

https://philippines.embassy.gov.au/mnla/National_Statistics_Office2.html

The parts in red may help to understand what is expected.

Also, please read this:

What is a CENOMAR

A Certificate of No Marriage Record (CENOMAR) is a certification issued by the Philippines NSO stating that a person has not contracted any marriage. Also called a certificate of No Record of Marriage or Certificate of Singleness.

A single person is someone who has never been married, or is annulled void ab initio, (not valid in law to start with).
An Unmarried person is someone who was previously married and was divorced or widowed.

Australia snares Filipino nursing high flyers

It’s a dream come true for Filipino nurses Edgar Amago Junior and his wife, Harriet, to live and work overseas. Originally they wanted to move to the United States to pursue their blossoming careers, but faster processing times and the chance to resettle sooner led them instead to Australia.

The talented young couple made their mark at the National Kidney and Transplant Institute in Manila, where both worked for four years after graduating with high marks. Edgar played a key role at the Institute in staff training and development, while Harriet gained recognition for her work in nursing research and quality improvement.

Fruit Picking Jobs for Filipinos in Australia

Fruit Picking Jobs in Australia need a Working Visa.

A website called topjobsportal is currently advertising fruit picking jobs for Filipinos in Australia.

Some people have asked if it is a scam, many Filipinos in the Philippines are wanting to apply for this work.

BUT… it is not that straightforward,  You NEED an Australian Working Visa first.

If you already have a working Visa, then yes, that type of work is available.

This type of fruit picking work is commonly available, and applied for by for by visitors to Australia on a Working Holiday visa.

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has previously cautioned overseas Filipino workers (OFW) and Filipino tourists against a new online scam offering bogus fruit-picking jobs in Australia.

Although this relates to a different company, and was in May 2014, the similarities may be close.
