    @alexsioson - maraming agents dyan at meron din based dito sa au..

    - if you dont have time to read
    - you have approx 3000-5000aud for the agent fee (that is on top of the visa processing fee of atleast 3500aud for single applicant)..
    - kung mdyo may complications ang case nyo...
    then you can get an agent to assist you..

    pero laking tipid kung magbabasa basa lang dito..
    especially for engineers.. ikaw din nmn mag prepare ng CDR for assessment mo..
    sila lang magsusubmit.. ;)

    sa current agent ko, staggered payment. Partial payment for one step, then pag natapos at na-approve, bago sila singil ulit for next phase of the application. This way, staggered payment ko, plus, may incentive sila na ma approve ako haha. Ang gusto ko pa, I send them the scanned color copies of my docs, then sila na nagnonotarize. For this phase only ha (ACT SS nomination). Not sure if this will still be the case afterward.

    20140319 - Invited to apply (visa 190)
    20140325 - Lodged visa 190

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.
