Happy 2019 sa lahat! New update lang... we are planning to revamp the site in the 1st - 2nd quarter of this year, time to change the very old look ng site. Salamat sa lahat ng support, especially sa mga loyal na bumabalik at moderator na walang sawang sumusuporta sa site.

    Hello.. can i ask info about the IELTS requirement in Tas 489 path. sa site kasi ng Tas it requires ‘Proficient English’ but in Homeaffairs 'Competent' requirement nman. If having a competent remark can i proceed to submit this path?

      competent is the minimum requirement of immigration to apply for a visa BUT since you are applying for Tas 489, you have to meet the "proficient" english requirement of Tas. If you submit your 489 applic and NOT meeting all requirements of Tas then your application will be rejected

      apply for skills assessment first. check the requirements of vic/nsw for 489/190. Nsa website nila. you have to complete all of the requirements for SS and need mo maglodge ng application for SS thru sa website ng state na gusto mo

      Hi AIR,

      Up to you if you want to use your friend's address, I dont think it will be a problem. You applied SA SS right? I assume na ung address ng friend mo is SA din.

      Pero technically you are not expected to have an australian address yet since you are an overseas applicant.

    Hi Au_Vic

    May tanong po ako, okay lang ba?

    Medyo nalito lang ako about dun sa Certificate of Employment requirements

    1. Lahat ba ng work experience (kahit yung may deduction ng ACS) need iupload yung COEs?
    or yung para lang dun relevant skills na eligible for DIBP points claim? or Result lang ng ACS
    assessment yung iuupload?

    2. Yung points ko for education is via VETASSESS need din ba ito i upload?

    TIA :)

      You have to upload ung result ng skills assessment at ung COEs mo. I think for consistency, iupload mo at least ung COE na same sa skills assessment

      Bkt need mo ng vetassess? I thought ACS ung assessing authority mo?

    Hi @Au_Vic,

    Interested narin ako mag lodge ng eoi for 489 for SA. For ICT System Analyst po need po ba muna mag create ng New EOI? Adelaide po pa ang pipiliin?

    Then after EOI creation, ano po ang next step? Need po ba mag wait for invitation?

    Lastly when converting to 887, need parin po ba mag IELTS ng main applicant ng 489?

    Maraming Salamat po sa sagot. Mabuhay! :)

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.
