    @changeiscoming when mag expire student visa? when are you going to lodge your 485? kami ng mga classmates ko kasi on March 15 ang expiration. we're thinking of lodging by Feb na para ma-maximise yung 2 years grad visa. meaning hindi kaagad tumakbo. kaso may nagsasabi na we need to apply within 2 months daw after course completion which will mean by December. so mejo confusing.

    Hi! Im a new grad as well. Just finished uni last July and I'm now currently working as a nurse here in QLD. I am not eligible to apply for post grad visa because I only studied for 1.5 yrs, hence I enrolled for an advanced diploma for 32 weeks while waiting for the verdict of my EOI for 190 NSW and 489 FS :) Good luck sa tin lahat!

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.
