What's Hot

Hi, all.

For those that have applied for the said stream recently, how long before you received a CO confirmation? or you were assigned a CO? It has been almost 2 months na and wala pa rin kaming CO. I guess this is normal, right?

    @superluckyclover Thanks for insight. Was just wondering if pwede na ba ako kumuha ng OVHC kahit valid pa ang OSHC ko? OSHC expires this June 2019, while student visa expires this March 2019. Was planning to get the OVHC only when I am assigned a CO na pero baka ito lang ang hinihintay din nila noh?

    I think health cover is an important requirement for 485. Tawag ka lang sa mga health insurance providers like BUPA, NIB, etc. parang i-arrange nila para sayo yung insurance na need for 485. Di ko masyado alam technicalities for carrying over, but i'm sure super essential requirement yun while processing your 485.

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.
