    Sa mga nagtatanong sa medicare...available sa lahat ng residents yan...yung babayaran niyo diyan at 1.5% ng annual gross salary niyo. Mas mataas babayaran niyo sa medicare kung wala kayong private health insurance. Ang efficient ng sistema nila noh hehe

    if PR visa, you will be entitled to have the Family Tax Benefit and Rental Allowance. 104 weeks or 2 years waiting time for the Newstart Allowance Benefit.
    Sa pagkakaalam ko po libre ang school pag govt funded ang school na papasukan.

    Hi everyone, first post ko dito. :)

    We've been granted Visa 175 last Feb 2012 but we couldnt migrate this year. Just to meet our cut-off date, we'll be going to Sydney this October for 3 weeks.

    My question now is, can I still or should I still do Items 1-4 if we will go back to Phils?
    Apply for TFN, Register with Medicare, Open a Bank Account and Register with Centrelink?

    Anyone here who registered and went back to Phils?

    thanks in advance! :)

    @lsjterrel wala naman akong nakikitang problema dito kung iapply mo na agad pagpunta mo dito for your initial entry.

    TFN / Medicare - once ka lang naman magapply nito, pagbalik mo ay eto pa rin ang gagamitin mong records

    Bank Account - some bank accounts charge x dollars every month kapag hindi nahuhulugan ng minimum amount kada buwan. at kapag hindi ka nagprovide ng TFN, mas malaki ang withholding tax sa interests earned ng account mo pero marerefund naman ito once maprovide mo ang tax number

    Centrelink - may 2 year exclusion period ang mga bagong PRs (not sure lang kung may entitlements agad kapag may child). like for us, pumunta kami pero di naman kami pinagregister kasi di pa naman daw kami entitled :D

    Hi all share ko lang yan din iniisip ko upon arrival in sydney first ko cguro gagawen mag open ng bank account. Mahirap na if maholdap if lahat ng pera mo nasayo tas bglang mawawala la pa naman akong job when I get to aus mag aaply pa lang.

    I called anz this morning cuz I was thinking of applying an anz account here in Singapore, so that all my funds are there and when I arrive in sydney I can just withdraw it. But the anz staff did not advise me to do that. Once you withdraw money from you anz account in sg, you will still pay overseas charges for it so advisable better open yer bank account pag nasa aus kana talaga.

    @JClem Dito na ko nag open. don't worry sa minimum initial deposit. pwede ka mag open sa NAB kahit na wala ka pa pera.. as in pwede ka mag open ng zero balance. wala sila minimum balance, (unlike sa pinas babawasan ka ng 200pesos a month pag below minimum).

    @paris_hipon Go to the ANZ branch in Raffles Place and ask help to open an offshore AUD account... This is possible but you cannot access it unlike you are in Oz physically.

    As shared by a colleague before who migrated to Oz; she said she opened an AUZ offshore (Australia acct) here in Singapore, she deposited her money there and when she finally migrated, she just presented herself to an ANZ branch in Melbourne and presented some documents. From there, her account was activated into a regular account...
