Hello. First time ko dito at first post ko po dito sa forum, kaya pag pasensyahan na kung may topic nang ganito. May tanong lang po, and hopefully someone could help me.

I got a PhD offer and scholarship to study at Griffith University (Gold Coast) this April 2019. I'll be applying for a student visa (500) next week (I'm just collating my documents for the GTE and thinking of how to pay my OSHC in order for me to get my CoE).

Question: is a medical examination required for the student visa? The thing is, I just got my tourist visa last November (single entry only, and I was there for 1 week). I was required to get a medical exam for the tourist visa.

Now, will they still require me to take another medical exam for the student visa? Or can I use the recently completed one? If so, would you think they'll be adding more types of exam (e.g., HIV, TB, etc.)?

Thanks sa makakasagot.

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.
