Form 80

I am checking all the required forms for DIAC as I need to have everything ready, I will be on a cruise for 2 weeks (no or limited internet) while waiting for the invitation so it means I have to prepare in advance.

I came across Form 80 and it says to list down all the countries I traveled. For the past 10 years I traveled to more than 30 countries.

My inquiry is

1. Should I declare all the countries I traveled?
2. I was sent on a business trip in Germany for 6 months should I declare it?
3. Also I traveled to Sydney for 1 day with a transit visa to NZ. Should I declare this?
4. What is the required length of stay to be requested for a police clearance?


My concern is that maybe CO will ask me for a police clearance for these countries I stayed. and it will be tedious to secure police clearance from these countries.

    @Gori .. you need to get police clearance on countries you stayed for 1 yr in the last 10 yrs.... so yung mga short business trips di ka na hingan ng police clearance... pero yung mga business trips na short pero madami namang beses na mag total ng 1 yr.. baka hingan ka... pls see below notes in GSM booklet..

    "In order for the Australian Government to determine whether you are of good character, you may be asked to provide police certificates for each country you have resided in for 12 months or more over the last 10 years, including Australia. More information on penal clearances is available from the department’s website www.immi.gov.au/allforms/"

    @multitasking - reading from your timeline, nagsimula ka na mag process ng PCCs even before hindi ka pa approved for VIC SS?

    @jane, Hello, I stayed in the US for 6 months, and worked in Sg for 2 years. I had to declare this because I think you are supposed to declare countries you've visited or stayed in for at least 6 months (if I remember right, they asked for 6 months' stay and up). I think sa hubby mo, short visits lang naman to those countries di ba? Alam ko they will ask for PCC only if you've stayed in the country for a year or more. Still you need to decLare 6 months' stay and up.

    Pero alam mo, my CO didn't ask for PCC from either US or kahit Singapore where I stayed for 2 yrs. As in, I only submitted my NBI clearance, and that was it. 8->

    @Gori, hi! Same tau ng concern. Seaman ang hubby ko at world wide ang byahe nila. Iniisip ko kung ilalagay din namin lahat ng countries na napuntahan nya. Ang dami nun.. #:-S
    @Jane: there are two sections in Form 80:

    Section 44. Have you travelled to Australia before? Have you travelled to any countries other than Australia (including short stays) during the last 10 years?

    - so i guess dito papasok ang mga short stays ng seaman... hindi naman talga kasi sira tumitira sa isang lugar..
    - countries lang nmn ang kailangan, at wala namang required na address.. so example pwede nyo ilagay, Date: Jan 1 2012-Dec 1, 2012, Visited countries: Malaysia, Singapore, HK.. Reason for Visit. Job: Seaman..
    - for me, madami na rin akong napuntahan, at inisa isa ko talga ang tatak sa 5 passports ko.. so I used an extra page at in-attached ko sa form 80..


    Section 45. List, in chronological order, the addresses of the places where you have lived during the last 10 years (including Australia). You must account for every year. If you are unable to provide an address for any period of time please provide an explanation. (If insufficient space, give details at Part J)

    - eto ang section kung saan kailangan nyo talga ng specific address..
    - so kung ang base (residence) ni mister is philippines, eh di philippines lang po ang kailangan nyo ilagay dito..
    - at kung may lugar man kung saan sya nag base example for more than 12 months eh nag stay sya sa isang lugar, then kailangan din ilagay dito...
    -eto ang basis ng CO, sa pag-require sa inyo kung kailangan nyong kumuha ng PCC sa certain country/ies na tinirhan nyo for atleast 12 months..

    @lock_code2004, Eto nga po ang concern ko "Have you travelled to any countries other than Australia, including any visits back to your country of citizenship during the past 10 years (including short stays)?" Pwede po bang hindi na isa isahin ung countries na napunthan nya? Like ung sa example nyo po, Jan 1, 2012 - Dec 1, 2012 tas ilalalgay na lang lahat ng bansa? Or dapat in details tlga? For example Jan 1-15, Malaysia. Parang ang dami kc kung iisa isahin and i'm not sure kung dinala nya ung old passports nya. Wala pa rin kc syang signal ngaun kaya dko pa natatanong..

    Thanks po sa matyagang pagsagot sa mga tanong namin. God bless us po..

    @jane - yun nga po, kung kaya nyo mag provide ng mas detailed info, mas maganda.. most likely alam nyo naman kung kelan ang vacation nya sa pinas so pwedeng ganito:

    Jan 1, 2012- Oct 31, 2012: Malaysia, Singapore, HK: Travelling as Seaman (On-Board)
    Nov 1, 2012- Dec 31, 2012 - Philippines: Off-Board/Vacation

    Pag bumababa po ba sila sa port eh tinataatakan ang passport nila? or hindi?
    kung hindi, possibleng ganyan na lang po..
    kung may details, at kaya nyo naman, mas maganda..

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.
