Hi po. Newbie lang ako dito. Ask ko lang po TSS 482. Im a registered nurse po here sa pinas. 1st plan ko po yung mag student visa kaso may refusals po ako na 2 sa visitor visa which is malaking impact daw sa GTE ng student visa ko may chance daw hndi ako maapprove kaya second option namin ng agent ko yung work visa. May chance po ba na makakuha ako ng sponsorship? Confused po ako sa mga friends ko na Aus RN na pero nahihirapan sila makahanap ng sponsor pano pa kaya ako na hindi aus RN tpos manggagaling pa ko sa pinas. Ano po kaya magandang pathway?? Medyo nasstress na rin ako. Sana matulungan nyo po ako.

    @krizia You will need to be an AuRN first before expecting to be sponsored, which means you will undergo the registration process via Bridging Program, outcomes-based-assessment (by around mid-2019), or nursing conversion course.
    Here are some sub-forums about being a nurse in Australia:

    I think your agent is a FRAUD.
    Why would he/she suggest TSS 482 Visa for you eh hindi pa po kayo AU RN? I think if alam talga niya yung details ng 482 TSS visa alam niya na requirement of that visa is may skill ka na accredited/ackno ditto sa AU. for nurses, you have to undergo Bridging or conversion to become AU RN.

    Just saying.

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.
