Happy 2019 sa lahat! New update lang... we are planning to revamp the site in the 1st - 2nd quarter of this year, time to change the very old look ng site. Salamat sa lahat ng support, especially sa mga loyal na bumabalik at moderator na walang sawang sumusuporta sa site.

Anyone had an experience with Class VF Subclass 476: Recognised Graduate Visa?

johnjrgsjohnjrgs PhilippinesTotal Reaction Points: 0Member
The special visa granted to engineering UP graduates within 2 years of their graduation. I'm currently a fresh graduate of BS Electrical Engineering in UP Diliman and also recently passed the board exam. Just recently consulted with Respall and the amount needed for their services is at 2380 AUD which is around 91k Php. Not sure if this is the best way (in terms of money/time/service) to apply for this visa. If anyone had any experience with this special visa, please share your experience! I'd really appreciate it! Thanks in advance.

    Hi @johnjrgs, here's the thread for Visa 476.

    Getting an agent for Visa 476 is definitely a waste of money (for me). You can do it by yourself with the help of others here. I can attest to that as I was previously a holder of visa 476. You may want to check the thread and if you still have questions, feel free to ask. God bless and congratulations on your graduation and for passing the board exam! :)

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.
