Hi,
I am just new to this forum and eager to meet new friends. My family and I have just been recently granted a PR Visa. We will soon be flying to Melbourne and would like to get some tips from fellow members about making the move. Also, if there are some members here who will move in April, so we could meet up and at least start a new life together as friends. Thank you.

    Hello shotie!

    Look for a place na may madali access sa public transport. And if you want house shared, may filipinos in this forum na nagooffer. Or if you want na unit/flat for rent, check www.domain.com.au or realestate.com.au. May points system yun application for flat/unit rental.

    Once you arrive, open a bank account, wala naman min deposit. Then apply for Tax file number and medicare.

    Message me when you guys arrive so we can meet

    Hi shotie!
    Browse mo lang un mga thread na naghahanap ng kashare sa house. Or nagpaparent ng house. Meron ako kilala ngpaparent ng house pero im not sure if may public transport in the area.

    About the point system, you have to provide reqts to apply. Like passport id, drivers licence in Au and others. May mga corresponding points sila. I forgot na ilan points un needed to pursue the rental application. Check mo this. Www.bellsrealestate.com.au.

    Sige meet tayo.

    @Shotie ah i see. About sa work, depende sa field eh. Kung in demand na work sya sa state. meron agad nakukuha, meron naman months before magkawork. Iba iba kasi ang mga experiences ng mga migrant. Madali ka na lang kung andito ka na. :)

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
