    @malt to answer yung 1st question mo, there is no medicare and centrelink benefits for 489 visa holders

    Mahirap in what sense? As long as you have a job and you will live a lifestyle that you can afford then I think walang issue pero kapag wala kang work kahit anung visa type mo or even kaming locals e mahihirapan ka talaga.

    In my own opinion di hamak na mas mahirap ang buhay ng mga nka student visa dito dahil sa limited working hours kaya mahirap for them na humanap ng work unlike with 489, you can work full time and no restriction sa hours.

    Yung medicare and centrelink benefits lang nmn kc ung di maaavail ng 489 pero in my case, I am a local and been living in australia for ages pero never pa ako nag-claim ng centrelink benefit. Medicare, yes nagaavail ako pero ilang beses ka ba sa isang taon magkasakit? believe me, karamihan ng locals dito very rare gamitin ang medicare unless may sakit ka or cguro kung may kids ka na sakitin plus most of us here have private health insurance for tax purposes.

    This is the key, if you and/or your partner has a job you will be able to survive, live a very decent life compared sa life sa pinas.

    Maybe I need to create a separate thread sa forum explaining about 489 kasi marami ng nagtanong before about sa 489 like mahirap ba makahanp ng work, limited ba ung hours, etc. para maliwanagan ung ibang kababayan natin.

    I hope I have given you some ideas sa sagot ko.

    hi @Au_Vic and @AIR.. Salamat sa pag-check ng occupation ko sa SA SS. and for pushing all us to try 489. Hindi ko talaga pinalampas ung opportunity na maka-apply agand. Sobrang unexpected ko talaga ung DG right after a month ng visa lodged (1 thought mga 5-mos pa ako maapprove) and to @Hunter_08 sa walang sawang pagsagot sa mga query ko sa PM.
    salamat ng marami.

    @Hunter_08 mejo mahirap i-explain yung buong details baka kc ma-confuse ka pero high-level, technically, medicare is not free coz we pay a medicare levy during tax lodgement, there is another component that is called medicare levy surcharge that is on top of the medicare levy which we need to pay to the govt so govt suggests that people should get private health insurance to get more health benefits and get exemption on the surcharge.

    I think medicare levy and medicare levy surcharge may mga conditions yan like annual income, age, etc. so not sure kung yung mga low income earners or retirees ay required to pay.

    @cacophony nope, walang issue dun. For sure, hindi lang ikaw ang naguupdate ng EOI at hindi lang din mga pilipino ang keen to get the opportunity here kaya don't worry too much :-)

    DIBP, wala nmn sila issue kung ilang EOI ka, as long as you can support your claims sa EOI once na-invite ka then that's it.

    Yung 489 mo, would that be SS or Relative sponsor? what is your nominated occupation? also, why victoria? kc baka may ibang state na mas mabilis na pwede mo i-try

    Hello po sa inyo, been reading this thread all along.. Ask ko lang po kung may chance po ba na mareject ang visa? Waiting na lng po kase ako under subclass 489 sa QLD ng visa grant. Subsequently, nka receive po ako ng invite for 190 today sa NSW kya medyo naguguluhan ako magdecide. Any advice po? Tks

    @rjb_08 yes, there is a possibility that visa application may be rejected by DIBP due to various reasons such as serious medical issues, inconsistent/fraudulent documents, not meeting the required points or incorrect points, misrepresentation, etc.

    bkt ka naguguluhan? is it because you got an invite for 190 and you already lodged 489?

    you can withdraw your 489 visa application if you like anytime prior to grant BUT you may not be able to refund your visa payment fee.

    @Au_Vic Hello po, tks po sa pag answer sa query. Basically ndi ko po kase alam kung iproceed ko yung 190 ko.. may implication po ba yun kapag nagproceed ako sa magiging result ng 489? Pwede po ba mareject yun kung malaman nila na nagsusubmit p dn ako for other subclass? Yung 489 ko po kase ay submitted by my agent at yung 190 ko po ay DIY ko lng po. Medyo conscious po ako baka may implication either way eh. Can u advise po? Tks

    @rjb_08 walang impact yung invite ng NSW sayo for 190 visa sa on-going 489 visa mo.. hindi mo pa din naman napapasa yung online application mo sa NSW.

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.
