The Philippine Consulate General in Melbourne may notarize, legalize, or consularize private documents such as Affidavits of Support & Guarantee (ASG) if they are completed, signed, and executed in front of a consular official or representative.

OFWs living in Melbourne can apply for ASG at the Philippine Consulate General, which is situated on Level 10, 257 Collins Street, Melbourne, Victoria 3000. Notarial services in PCG Melbourne are only offered by appointment. Please be aware that the application must be submitted with certain requirements, such as a valid ID, attached.

The presence of an ASG does not guarantee the approval of a visa, tourist visa, or admission. ASG functions as a type of form for the documentation required for getting a visa, tourist visa, or admission. ASG is usually requested by Philippine Bureau of Immigration (BI) authorities from Filipinos who get support from their relatives  in Australia.
