Applying for Australian visa can be complicated. We have various visa’s to choose from. Visa such as a student visa, business, permanent visa’s. All of which has different classifications and purposes.
For instance, a student visa normally allows you to gain entry to Australia, because your purpose is to study. Having an Australian visa, allows you to work 20 hours per week and requires you to attend school. If you miss certain days off school, your visa will be revoked and you have to return back from your origin country. See more about Australian Student Visa here. Tourist visa, allows you to come to Australia as a tourist. But you are not allowed to work!
As you can see, different visa’s allows you to do specific things. Entry to Australia under varying visas, also varies. Some might be attracted to some type of visa because it is easier. But not realise that their Australian visa used may not be the correct one. Philippines has many agencies. We know the corruption exists rampantly in Philippines but not all of them are there to rip you off. None the less, it’s worth excercising caution using agencies (Australia, Philippines or otherwise). See more about Philippine Agencies here
