Have you submitted your case ? Any outcome ? I see you have submitted a copy of everything. Is this a requirement where you are applying or own choice ?

Yes, visa received on 27th February. You are supposed to attach a copy to every document you submit.

Please stop asking the same question over and over. We have already advised you to submit a copy of everything.

Thanks Joppa.

Nyclon I was just asking to see different perpectives not a direct question to be answered by the experts. I don't see any harm done.

But it does clutter the forum so do it sparingly.

Did you have to send an empty self addressed courier bag? They are making an issue out of that for me as I forgot to do that and they are not releasing my documents, I have sent a courier bag to them last week. Didn't get any reply or anything so far, really fed up with the way they operate their visa services.

Hi Ruby, are you in New Zealand? Is it just a domestic courier bag that needs to be included - or do you need to include 'postage' (whatever that may be) all the way from Manila?
