Hi! Question lang po, kahit po ba hindi ma update yung Eligibility Review magbibigay sila ng final decision? September 3 kasi intake ko, and medical pa lang updated sa profile ko...
For study direct stream they update all fields in one go. I remember not receiving updates at all until the day the final decision section was updated. Timeframe from the time I accomplished the biometrics was 16 calendar days

In my case po, when I got the request letter, same day nagpasa din po ako. The next day, decision made na po kami.
Yung sa amin po,
Aug 19 request letter for nbi, nagsubmit din po kami same day.
Aug 20 nag update po sa system na “the additional documents you provided have been uploaded”
Aug 22 nag update po ulit sa system na “we are reviewing the additional documents you have provided”

Sana naman next week meron na. Buti pa sa inyo next day din.
Regular Online din po ba yung sa inyo?

How did you submit via paper based?

My application is online and I also got a request for an NBI letter of explanation. My problem now is that when I try to upload the NBI letter, I get this error:

System-generated error code:9IW15Z3T (2019-08-24 05:09:34)
Sorry
This on-line service is currently not available.
Possible reasons::
  1. We are currently updating this Web site.
  2. We are experiencing technical difficulties.
Please try again later.​

I think it was because I typed the expiry date wrong at first, then I clicked cancel and did not proceed to upload. Now, when I try to click on the upload button, I get this error. I've been trying all day, but getting the same error.

I'm hoping to just submit via paper based in case this doesn't get fixed. I just don't know how.

Thanks.

Help po. Anong branch po ng BDO and tried and tested na po for GIC wire transfer? Metro Manila area po sana.

I’m from Ilocos Norte po, pero tinatanong kasi nila kung bakit daw po address ko dito sa Pinas ang ilalagay ko sa Beneficiary’s Address, sa Field59 po. Naka-print po ‘yong ni-send ng Scotia na info pero ayaw pa din po kasi baka ma-reject lang daw po sa head nila.

Pinapabalik po ako pero dapat daw po may proof or explanation po ako na address ko talaga dito sa Pinas ang magagamit, and kung may mga successful na daw po bang gumawa nun at anong branches daw po ng BDO.

Help naman po sa mga nakapag-successful wire transfer na through BDO po.

Thank you po.
Be careful with BDO. Nagkaproblema ako dyan bago ako pumunta na canada. Miscommunication etc. I am not sure kung kahit saang branch pwede mag telegraphic transfer, kasi doon ako sa mismong branch kung saan may acct ako. Pakilinaw sa kanila na you need CAD not USD. Ulit ulitin mo yan. That is their mistake last time bumalik pera ko and got a msg from scotiabank; "currency should be in cad".
Be careful din sa details. Beneficisry info, swift code, acct num and the alike. Yung address for field 59 should be a canada address where you will stay. In case na bumalik yan (wag naman sana), you should have a dollar acct since naka usd yan pagbalik and it will take 7to10 banking days bago bumalik yan sa branch from tha day scotiabank return your money. Hassle. All the best!

We submitted the whole application, paper based at VFS Makati. If you already submitted your application, and got a request letter, you have to follow the instructions given to you po. You can't send it directly to the office unless it is instructed to you.

Omg. Canada address po ba talaga dapat sa Beneficiary Address? Hmmm. Dun po kasi naga-alangan ‘yong teller ng BDO. Pero sabi po ng ibang nagreply po, address po na ginamit ko ng nag apply ako for GIC. Eh address ko po dito sa Pinas ang nilagay ko. Nakakatakot naman po.

Ano pa po kayang bank ang pwede magwite trasfer kahit newly-opened account?

Hi!

Share ko lang, I processed my GIC at BPI. Less hassle sa kanila. In my case, they only asked for a copy of my LOA and a copy of the list of requirements for a study permit (GIC account should be in the list of requirements). Screenshot ko lang from my phone then print and handed it to the assisting BPI officer. Alam na rin nila ang process nang pag transfer. Bigay mo lang yung instructions provided by Scotiabank. :)
Saang branch po ng BPI?
