    Hi guys,

    if mag initial entry lang kami and stay for 6 days in AU, ok lang ba na hindi muna kumuha ng tax number at magregister sa medicare and centerlink? tapos saka nalang asikasuhin un pag balik namin para mag settle na.

    thanks in advance!

    No issue at all on this but my question is; why delay it?

    Medicare will take less than 1 hr, tax file number will be done in less than 10 minutes online pa.... I dunno bout centrelink as we did not bother with this.

    Better to do it now in my opinion so that you will be up and ready when you come back AND MOST IMPORTANTLY you will be able to get your medicare card hence you will be covered immediately if ever you need to be hospitalized.

    ^TasBurrfoot... yung TFN needs a physical address in Aust, diba? nagbago na ba?
    kasi kung walang mapo-provide si @ozzie ng physical address, then sa pagbalik na lang nya.

    True, pero if may kakilala sya... @ozzie can always use the address of that acquantance. :)

    my advice is different... kung 6 days ka lang, wag ka na kumuha ng mga yan, pagbalik mo na lang pag mag settle ka na dun mo na kunin mga yan... enjoy mo na lang Australia, mamasyal ka kung saan saan hehee...

    pero seriously wag na lalo na sa medicare kasi kung more than 30y/o ka na, after a year when you register to medicare, magbabayad ka na ng medicare levy surcharge pag kukuha ka ng private health... so mag register ka na pag talagang settle down ka na para meron ka 1 year not to pay the surcharge...

    http://www.privatehealth.gov.au/healthinsurance/incentivessurcharges/mls.htm

    it's your decision though :)

    You can still waive the LHC loading on private health insurance.... you can get a certificate from medicare stating that you are less than a year in AU ... I just dont know if this still apply if you were out of australia for more than a year ..

    we were 32 ( wife was 31 ) when we enter australia timing na nung kumuha kami ng Private Insurance e less than a year after our entry ...

    @icebreaker1928 ser, clarify ko lang. bale yung 1 year na sinasabi ay yung deadline mo para kumuha ng private insurance without paying the loading?

    so halimbawa po, pagkadating ko ng Au, pag nagregister ako sa Medicare, pwede na rin ako kumuha ng private insurance, pero after 12 months ko pa pwede gamitin?

    @floradanica tama po lahat except po dun sa last part...
    pag kumuha ka ng private health insurance, anytime pwede mo na gamitin except na lang sa mga ibang condition like panganganak, pre-existing condition etc... rules na ng private health yun.

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.
