    Another essential item is probably to have a way to communicate within OZ. What is the reccomended initial SIM/plan to take so as to have a way to call through mobile phone?

    I have read abut Telstra and Optus, would be glad to know other telcos who may offer better.

    @RClem

    you could use prepaid sim muna pagdating mo sa oz.. I recommend Optus kase ok yung signal and it doesnt cost as much as Telstra..

    Telstra > good signal, expensive charges
    Vodaphone > cheap rates, bad signal
    Optus > relatively good signal, average charges

    once you subscribe for a plan, you can keep your prepaid number and transfer it as post paid.

    Also, i know optus also has sim cards for overseas calls. cheaper ang rates. basta keep your PH sim for roaming para tipid yung family and friends mo pag nagtetext sayo.

    @macaraeg_mj

    mas maganda kung magagawa mo na yung 1-4.. pero ang problem mo is saan yung address mo. magpapadala kase sila ng letters containing your #1 TFN number #2 Medicare Card #3 Debit Card welcome kit #4 (di ko pa to nagagawa)

    yung #3 maski hindi muna kase madali lang naman mag-open ng account dito sa oz..

    yun lang, although efficient naman kase ang postal system dito and the processing of stuff.. you will receive those in 1-4 days.

    tingin ko kelangan mo na magregister sa centrelink, not sure lang masyado kase diba may family ka? makakatulong ata sa inyo eto.. ako kase walang value sakin centrelink

    @Bryann you'll get a Medicare card kung PR ka.. it covers check-up, hospitalizations pero di kasama dental.

    for Centerlink benefits, you have to wait for 2 years pa.. kaya ako, i didn't bother to go there na

    Ahhh ayun. Thanks. Kapareho din kaya dito ng healthcard sa company yun for example? Meron limit per year? For example, Php250k per illness/year. Ganun din po ba dyan? Tapos meron diseases na covered at meron hindi? :) Although matagal pa naman para sa akin yan stage na yan, nice to know na din. :)

    haha! hindi uso dito na yung company ang nagpprovide ng health cover.

    pero kung gusto mo kuha ka din ng private health insurance especially if you are earning more than 80k per year

    Actually okay lang kung walang private health insurance kasi may medicare ka naman kapag migrant ka dito. Pero kung may health issue mas maganda mayrun.
