    Consolidated Guide for our reference:

    Things to do before arrival in Australia:
    1. Attend PDOS (Pre-departure Orientation Seminar).
    http://www.cfo.gov.ph/rnr-pdos.html
    2. Search for an accommodation in your preferred state.
    a. flatmates.com.au
    b. gumtree.com.au
    c. ljhooker.com.au
    d. domain.com.au
    e. www.realestate.com.au/rent
    3. Book flight tickets to AU. (Qantas offers extra 10 kgs for first-time migrants, just email them at email address: [email protected])
    4. Open a bank account of your choice through online.
    - my preferred bank is NAB due to zero monthly account fees
    Website:
    https://www.nab.com.au/common/forms/nab-migrant-banking#?products=nab-classic-banking-account
    Well Known Banks in Aussie
    • Commonwealth Bank (CommBank)
    • National Australian Bank (NAB)
    • Westpac Banking Corporation
    • Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ)
    5. Buy enough AUD that you will carry with you during the trip but limit the amount to less than AUD10k.
    6. Make a wire transfer transaction to transfer funds to your Australian bank account.
    7. Polish your resume and register on Australian job portals.
    http://media.newjobs.com/mm/redux/cmscontent/AU/cv/cv-template-sales-management.pdf
    Regarding employment; websites to look for job.
    a. https://www.seek.com.au/
    b. jobactive.gov.au - from @pahpuh
    c. au.indee.com
    d. Meron din daw sa centrelink
    8. Finish any minor medical treatments such as dental work, eye check-up and full health check-up.
    9. Enable international roaming on your mobile.
    This will keep your Phil number active and secondly, you can still receive the One Time Password(OTP) SMS for various transactions such as credit card payment or bank transactions.
    10. Get prescriptions for any medicines which are not over-the-counter.
    11. Do a web check-in before the day of travel. This will save you the pain of waiting in a long queue.

    Things to do upon arrival in Australia:
    1. Buy a sim card and activate it.
    - Optus, Vodafone, Telstra
    2. Buy a pass for public transport.
    - Opal card for Sydney and surrounding areas
    - Myki pass for Melbourne and regional Victoria
    - Go card for Brisbane, Gold Coast and major suburbs in Queensland
    3. Visit the branch of your chosen bank. Once your identity is verified, your account will be activated and a debit card will be issued to you.
    (Reqmts: Passport, bank letter, visa printout)
    4. Apply for TFN (Tax File Number).
    You will need your passport and visa letter to fill out the online TFN application form. TFN letter will be sent by post to your mailing address in about a month’s time.
    https://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/tax-file-number/apply-for-a-tfn/foreign-passport-holders,-permanent-migrants-and-temporary-visitors---tfn-application/
    5. Apply for Medicare.
    https://www.humanservices.gov.au/individuals/enablers/how-enrol-or-re-enrol-medicare
    6. Apply for Centrelink.
    https://www.humanservices.gov.au/individuals/services/centrelink/centrelink-online-accounts#register
    7. Create an account on my.gov.au and link all the government services such as Medicare, Centrelink, TFN (ATO details), etc.
    https://my.gov.au/LoginServices/main/login?execution=e2s1
    Optional:
    8. Get an Australian driving license
    https://www.australia.gov.au/information-and-services/transport-and-regional/drivers-licence-application
    9. Update your kid's vaccination details in Australian records.
    Visit a GP and present your immunization book. The GP will register/ update records in Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).
    https://beta.health.gov.au/topics/immunisation/health-professionals/immunisation-history-statements
    10. Set up auto top up facility for your card.
    Auto top up is nothing but a facility whereby your bank account is linked to your travel pass. So whenever your card balance is about to reach zero, it will automatically be recharged with the amount you specified by debiting your bank account.

    Sa mga visa 190 - NSW nga pala diyan, ni review ko kasi yong invitation document at nabasa ko yong mga conditions:

    1. Live and work in NSW for two years from the date of visa grant (if already residing in Australia) or the date of my arrival in Australia;
    2. Advise NSW Trade & Investment of my address on arrival in NSW (if applicable) and of any change of home or business address during the first two years that I reside in NSW on this visa; and
    3. Respond to NSW Trade & Investment surveys or requests for updated information on employment and settlement in NSW.

    Sa #2 paano ka mag i-inform ng NSW na dumating kana? at sa number #3 ano tong respond to survey? sent thru email ba ito from NSW? at requests for updated info and settlement. In case, may work na ako doon at may address paano ko i-notify ang NSW?

    Maraming Salamat.

    Hello! Nag-attend ako PDOS nung tues and learned there the ff:

    1. Ang PH TRAVEL TAX pala ay valid for ilang times na use within the same calendar year for PR holders. Meaning, kung nag IE ka ng Jul then BM ka ng Dec, no need to pay travel tax during the latter.

    Mejo naconfuse ako so tried clarifying with TIEZA via phone and they said exemption is only allowed if magpakita ng "certification". I contested kasi my sister in law got exempted without it. Pinakita lang nya visa grant letter nya dun sa NAIA counter. I also asked via fb msg pero babalikan pa daw nila ako with that concern.

    May nakaencounter na ba nito?

    2. Meron silang partnership with Intl Migrants Org (IMO) for lower AIRLINE RATES. I asked for a quote. Qantas sila 40kg pero when i compared online, mas mahal pa din sila. 33k (quote @40kg) vs 25k (online @30kg). Baka lang mas mura bigay nila kung marami like family. No harm in trying for others.

    3. Sa mga nagBM, talaga bang strict sila with DOWNLOADED CONTENT? Like ung mga nasa HD, flashdrives, or even laptop/phone?

    4. May nakaexperience pa din ba nung SWAB test ng LUGGAGE and pag-OPEN ng luggage dun sa pila ng checkin?

    Thanks sa lahat ng inputs so far. Katuwa magbackread. Always very helpful in prep for our Aussie dreams. :)

    @ssendood i actually tried to have my travel tax exempted on our ie (na bm na din) hahaha try lang. Sabi sakin sa first fly out may bayad pero once umuwi ng pinas then exit ulit, exempted na yun. Wala naman nabanggit na may period lang so d ako sure jan

    Sa amin di naman chineck laptop and HD. I got downloaded movies in my hd that i forgot to delete, narealize ko nalang nung nandito na.

    Yung swab parang normal procedure na siya for au flights? They did that to all of us in the flight and nabasa ko nga na may naganun dito sa forum so nilinis ko nalang din muna ng alcohol yung maleta hehe

    Thanks @dyanisabelle :) di ko pala sure kung alin ung swabtest nung nagtourist ako kasi may luggage check sa airport entrance, checkin queue, chaka sa boarding gate dito sa maynila.

    Ito sabi ni TIEZA.

    "We shall bring the matter concerning CFO Manila to the attention of our Travel Tax Department.

    Once you have an entry to the country where you are a Permanent Resident, you will be entitled to the travel tax exemption the next time you return to and travel out of the Philippines. To avail of the exemption next time you travel, you may apply for exemption at any of our travek tax centers. Be sure to present your original passport, copy of identification page of passport & stamp of last arrival in the PH, and original proof of permanent residency abroad (such as the Permanent Resident Card).

    Provided that you have presented the needed documents to any of our travel tax centers, you will be issued a Travel Tax Exemption Certificate. You will present this certificate when you fly out of the Philippines."

    @ssendood I also done attending PDOS. As first time flying from Philippines to Australia we’ll be called as Emigrant which we need to pay the travel tax kasi hindi pa tayo Immigrant sa Australia, Emigrant pa lang daw kasi technically di pa tayo PR doon sa OZ. Magiging PR lang tayo ng OZ officially once makalapag na tayo mismo sa OZ. In General, CFO sticker is very important, wag niyo ito wawalain kahit mag change na kayo ng passport sabi always bring your old passport (if nagrenew/change na kayo) with CFO sticker if traveling to and from Pinas FOREVER unless we became citizen of other country. hehe

    Now, if ever uuwi ng Pinas then fly out ng Australia pabalik hindi na rin tayo magbabayad ng travel tax na, UNLESS if we stay 365days or 1 year sa pinas, that will be the time na magbabayad na tayo ng travel tax. Another example umuwi ka ng Nov 2018 ng pinas then lumipad ka January 2019, hindi ka po magbabayad ng travel tax kahit nag iba na ang year kasi ang bilangan po is 365days or 1yr equivalent.

    Nakasaad po ito sa P.D. 1183
    eto ang link: https://www.lawphil.net/statutes/presdecs/pd1977/pd_1183_1977.html

    As PR’s of other country ang babayaran lang po natin every time we fly in and out of Pinas is ang terminal fee which is valid kasi ginagamit naman natin ang facilities ng airport.

    I hope this helps :)

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.
