    We just brought $250 as pocket money - all the rest were in the CBA account that we opened months before.

    Pwede kayo mag open ng bank account sa National Australia Bank (NAB) for migrants then you can transfer your pocket money from your existing bank account. Walang maintaining balance ang offers ng NAB, you just need to verify your identity once you arrived in Oz and visit the local NAB branch.

    @OZwaldCobblepot Not necessary na kailangan mag lagay ng pera pero kailangan mo ng personal appearance sa branch nila within 6 weeks upon initial entry sa Oz. You may visit their site for more info: www.nab.com.au. Tapos search mo "migrant banking".

    Ang alam ko dapat within 6 weeks upon your entry to AU eh dapat may physical appearance ka sa bank para ma-authenticate nila yung identity mo, that day din nila ibibigay yung ATM card mo personally.

    @filipinacpa Congrats po! Saan po pala kayo sa Australia?

    Nag online foreign exhange po kami. Eto po yung steps na ginawa namin.

    1) Nag open po muna kami ng account sa NAB. I suggest po na savings account ang iopen nyo sa NAB para may interest agad, yun po kasi ang ginawa namin. pero nag open din po kami ng transaction account.
    2) Then niregister namin yung NAB Bank account sa Hi-fx (yung online foreign exchange), tapos dun kami bumili ng AUD.
    3) Tapos po punta kayo sa local bank nyo (eg bpi, metrobank, etc) para i-wire transfer ang money sa Hi-fx.
    4) Sa case po namin, 4-5 business days bago na-credit ang AUD sa NAB, pero sa second transaction mas mabilis na po.

    Ang binayaran lang po namin na service charge ay yung local bank namin.

    Tanong lang po kayo if medyo malabo ang explanation ko ah. :)

    @filipinacpa Wala po anuman. :) Nasa pinas po ba kayo? If yes, you can check your bank if magkano po ang service charge nila. May iba po kasing bank na nagccharge based on the amount you transfer, meron naman po yatang iba na fixed.

    If kailangan namin ng "physical" cash, nagpapalit po kami sa czarina money changer sa makati. You just need to call them para makapagpareserve or to inquire if meron silang AUD.

    Pero most of the time, online foreign exchange po ang gamit namin. Hassle free po kasi at mababantayan mo pa ang galaw ng exchange rates.
