Initial Entry Adelaide - what to do

What's Hot

Hi, mag IE kami sa october. Wala naman ako nakitang existing post about this so tanong ko lang sana kung meron sa inyo jan may step-by-step instructions ano gagawin pag IE, specific to Adelaide.

And tanong ko din yung sa driving license. Nakita ko kasi na you need to convert within 90 days of becomming a PR. Meaning ba nyan counting starts sa IE mo? kasi mukang hindi ko maaasikaso yung driving license this october. Sa BM ko pa siya magagawa which will be Feb 2018 pa for us. (May Singapore driving license ako).

Salamat sa magttyaga sumagot haha :)

    Hello..not sure din kung from the date of your IE ung sa driver's license.

    Meron ka na ba license sa SG? If meron, madali lang naman iconvert. Kakaconvert ko lang. It took mostly an hour.

    So if you have SG Driver's license and you have a few hrs to spend in South Australia, I suggest iconvert mo na.

    Although ang impact lang naman ata if you were not able to convert it within 90 days ay hindi ka pwede magdrive. Pwede mo pa naman iconvert after 90 days.

    What I meant was, you are allowed to drive using your foreign driver's license for 90 days. After the 90 day period, if you are a PR, you'll have to convert your foreign license to AU license.

    Reporting lang...Kakabalik lang namin from IE, grabe sobrang ganda ng OZ. excited na kami magBM. If time and budget allows, magandang idea talaga mag IE to get a feel of OZ bago mag BM. Yung akala naming high cost of living, same lang pala sa SG if not mas mura pa nga yung ibang bilihin. Eating out sa restos, halos same lang din. Mas mahal lang yata ng konti yung fastfood.

    Sorry po hindi ko alam. Baka sa main thread (general) mas marami makasagot.
    Pero kung yung BM nyo e pasok padin sa IE deadline, i dont think may issue.

    Kelan BM nyo pala? Kami Feb. Wala kami kakilala dun e haha

    As long as your BM date is on/before the required entry date na nakalagay sa visa niyo, ayos lang.

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.
