BM Questions - Finance, Rental and ID

cheesyfionacheesyfiona Metro ManilaTotal Reaction Points: 33Member
Hi mga ka-pinoyau, I'm researching on how to go about the big move, and I'm at a loss most especially on how to establish my finances / credit standing.

- Can I apply for a credit card agad if I have good credit standing here in the Philippines?
- How do I go about renting as a migrant? Pano pag walang cheke for PDC (do they even do that there?) at hindi naman nila ko maba-background check dahil migrant?
- Does anybody keep a PH credit card until such time na maging eligible to apply in AU?
- What IDs can we apply for as a migrant except for license?

Thanks a lot for any input. If it helps, planning to move to a Melbourne suburb.

    @cheesyfiona Base on experience:

    - How do I go about renting as a migrant? Pano pag walang cheke for PDC (do they even do that there?) at hindi naman nila ko maba-background check dahil migrant?
    - weekly rent is paid either by Direct Debit or EFT. hindi uso ang PDC cheque dito. they have ways to credit check you even if your a migrant. i don't know if its true, but yes they have ways.
    - Does anybody keep a PH credit card until such time na maging eligible to apply in AU?
    - i still keep my BPI cc no problem naman.
    - What IDs can we apply for as a migrant except for license?
    - proof of age i think. in particular, what purpose for the other ID's when you have AUS license here, Aus debit card and passport they can pass for the 100 points of identification na.

    @agentKams Sorry I didn’t see this right away. Thank you for your inputs. I might apply for proof of age ID kasi baka matagalan pa mag apply ng license. Thanks again

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.
