Sir/Ma'am,

Your most welcome! And, thanks for sharing your timeline, too. SDS decisioning timeline is kinda tricky. Historical data shows decisioning as short as 7 days. The longest was 28 days.


▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎
Nonetheless, here's our updated forecast:
  1. artsh0914 (SDS: July 27)
  2. mrsm2016 (Reg: July 28)
  3. rain143 (Reg: Aug 01)
  4. lopi14 (Reg: Aug 04)
  5. rchldcv (SDS: Aug 09)
  6. roks (Reg: Aug 11)
Disclaimer: forecasted dates lang po ito. Plus/minus 2 days. SDS processing takes about 21 + 7 days, while Reg Stream takes about 28 + 7 days.

SP + OWP common law (Regular stream Online)

Application Lodged - June 19
Medical Passed - June 20
Biometrics Updated - June 20
Biometrics Correspondence Letter - July 22 AM
PPR - July 22 PM

Thank God :) Maktub!

PS. For those in doubt if they should apply:
Course Culinary Management, different from work experience and from my Bachelor's degree (Political Science) - I was able to defend this on my SOP and attached photos of my culinary skills from home-cooked meals :) recently refused PR, provided LOE for this.

So, dual intent and course can be answered in SOP 2 pages and Letter of Explanation. If you need help in reviewing your SOP and letter of explanation, I'd be happy to help.
Yehey! Ang galing, congratulations! :)

Ang galing. Im so proud. That entertained the v.o. Congratulations.
Sa SOP ko i made a rough draft and an expert English Ielts teacher with overall bandscore of 9 (ielts clinic owner) helped me and chedked my grammar. I paid 500php for that. So cheap and the letter was excellent. I am a nurse in the philippines with 6 years work experience as a nurse, married with 2 kids baby 1 (5y.o.) baby 2 (1y.o). My babies and husband will follow after 6-8 months. Hopefully.

I recieved my passport with the canda visa stamp yesterday ,I still cant believe. God is good.

@Catpaws14

Question po.

SP + OWP po kayo diba?
Yung biometric correspodence letter po is yung letter stating the validity of the biometrics db?

Sa part kasi namin, si husband (OWP) got his biometric correspondence letter since July 13. Pero ako na student, wala ako narereceive pa.

Question po ulit.

Nirequire po ba kayo magbayad ng working permit fee? In addition to your student permit fee?

Thanks po.

Guys. Please I need your opinions.

Anyone who applied for a program na may co-op/internship?

Did they ask you to pay for working permit as well?

Thank you for your answers!

Hi. Meron akong mandatory co-op. Ito breakdown na binayaran ko:
SP 150
WORK PERMIT 150
OWP HOLDER FEE 100

I answered yes doon sa start ng online application kung kailangan ng work sa course ko tapos attached ko sa evidence of work requirement ay LOA, course description sa website ng nscc at yung email nila on how to apply for co-op. Napaisip din ako kung anong iistamp sa visa ko, sabi ng vfs dito 5-7 business days ko daw makukuha yung passport.

Oh. I see. SP lang kasi binayaran ko and biometric. I got an email today kasi requesting for payment ng WP, which I did not pay. May co-op din kasi ako.

San school ka po?
