    @oninz sorry but I really don't have any idea as we have not attached any business permit during our application. Kasi wala namn kami business sa pinas. Actually for OFW who are applying, parang hindi sila mahigpit. kasi kami we just provided our employment contract na hanggang next pa matatapos, tpos employment certificates. as proof na babalik pa kami.

    @oninz bakit pinas diba Dubai ka, dapat ang proof na send mo is yung proof na babalik kapa ng Dubai. Like contract ng employer, certification from employer nang leave entitlement mo. ganun mga docs na provide ko. Although nag attached din kami ng documents ng kakilala naming from AU. Citizen na sila. and distant relative ni wife. baka may bearing din yun. Family of 4 yong application nmin. sau ba?

    Hello everyone,

    If any of you who need dollars (AUD and USD) , just message me thru this number: 09166352597.
    The price will be based on forex, I think it's a win-win situation for us. I just want to get rid of my excess dollar from my visit.

    Note that it's limited only, so first ring first serve.

    God bless everyone and enjoy your trip to Aussie. I just came back from my trip to Sydney and I really want to get back in this place.

    Quick question, na-grant po ako ng tourist visa Subclass 600 last Sept 28 2016. It says the following:

    Stay For/Until: 3 Month(s)
    Entries: Multiple
    Last Date to Arrive: 28 September 2017

    I toured last November 2016 for a week. Does that mean I'm only allowed until this February 2017 for holidays sake prior to my last trip, which was 3 mos ago? Or until Sept 28th of this year? Planning to book sana come summer time to maximize the use of visa. Thanks in advance.

    thanks po @axlrose @Xiaomau82
    follow up question lang po, narefused po kc first application ko for the reason of being unemployed kababalik ko lang kc galing ibang bansa so wala ako trabaho dito...need ko lang any suggestion na pwede ko idagdag sa mga documents ko as follows;
    -sari-sari store business (with business permit and mayors permit)
    -deed of sale (lot) with house
    -bank account (150k)
    -mutual fund investment sa bank
    -birth certificate of 2 kids & their school certification
    -statutory declaration of support ng sponsor (with bank statement)
    sabi kc sa nabasa ko dito sa forum kung ano yung naging reason ng refusal yun dapat iku-comply, sa tingin ko naman po wala naman company na papayag na 3months mawawala. last question po is makakatulong ba ang itinerary plane ticket papunta sa ibang bansa naman after sana nitong australia trip?thanks in advance po sa mga sasagot.

    3 months ba declared mo na stay sa Australia? Masyadong matagal. I suggest you change the intended stay in Australia then provide those documents.

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.
