  • @fgs copy. Good luck!
  • @xtan2 ayos yan bro! kayang kaya! galing din kame ng Abu Dhabi, prior to coming here.
    in Big Move Budget? Comment by dy3p March 1
  • @Cassey Thank you sa referral. Bulk bill ko nalng. hehe jk. @syaoran Like what @LovellaEllen said, she (your friend) really doesn't need an agent for this type of visa application, unless of course she is overly busy. Yep, tell her to save a couple …
  • @leij31 @xtan2 Depende po yan sa household nyo. And ofcourse your location. Marami na pong thread dito about moving or better known as "big move". Iba iba depende sa state and gaya nga po ng sabi ko earlier, number of dependents present in the hou…
  • @jhen511 Hi Mam. Tanong lang po, ang visa extension po ba for TV are only for those na mageexpire lang ang visa? I mean, the visa is valid for a year with the length of stay for 3 months on each arrival. Let's say na hindi pa naman mageexpire ang vi…
  • @vibs, dumating din kame dito nung 2017 na gamit ng wife ko surname nya, pero dahil mageexpire na passport nya in the next 6 months, kaka-apply lang namin ng renewal using my surname na. Then she started to update the bank, phone company, homeaffair…
  • pacheck nalang po sa signature, thanks.
    in PR Timeline Comment by dy3p January 9
  • @atonibay kung nakalagay sa form 80 na lahat you need to put all your work experience. pag iniligay ba sa form 80. Hihingi ba yung CO ng payslip? Kahit hindi cya part sa assessment? Not quite sir. If I were you, I'll throw in some evidences of emp…
  • @Ibe1030 So pag 482, OEC lang and no need for PDOS?
  • @schama Sorry po, pero ako din po naguluhan sa mga tanong nyo. Try ko nalang po sagutin ayon sa pagkakaintindi ko ha. Bago po ang lahat, ano po ba yung natanggap nyong sulat from immigration? grant letter po ba or requesting for further information…
  • @Giegie They did change the rules nga as last year kinailangan nung friend ko umattend ng pdos. Anyway, thanks for the info and further clarification. :)
  • @fgs Mejo vague yung pagkakastate sa website kung gnyan nga. Kasi kahit sinong ofw (not only migrants) will require PDOS. Papunta ng UAE, SG, UK, wherever, basta employment, dadaan sa pdos e. 457 yung kasamahan ko dito dumating last year. Dumaan si…
  • Hi, we are on 457 Visa and we will be flying from Manila to Melbourne. I know that OEC is a requirement, but please advise if Manila Immigration requires a PDOS (Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar) for us to be allowed to leave Philippines. Anybody …
  • @Soleng "at par" - "equivalent to" or "same as"
  • @Soleng Pwede ka naman mag pa assess sa ahpra kahit walang bridging. Actually, that is the first step, ang mag pa assess. Pero if hindi at par nursing education mo with Au's, then idedeny nila application mo saka ka nila irerefer for Bridging. :)
  • @jayson17 Hi, haven't lodged recently pero I remember paulit ulit din ako nagupload nun. Nothing wrong with it too.
  • @Krisian While it is a possibility and others may have done it, I strongly suggest to wait for the outcome of the assessment as that is a ground for application rejection. That goes for PR as well. One can't file for an EOI if a skill assessment has…
  • @ayeniyah Please see attached for your reference.
  • @ayeniyah . Same din nangyari saken last year. Used my 457 medicals (3 months prior to application) upon visa lodging then a month later na CO contact ako asking for the same exact medicals as hindi daw valid. Like you, I tried explaining through ph…
  • @queenie052288 Are you already registered with AHPRA? If not, then you might want to look at that first before planning way ahead.
  • @krizia Mam, suggestion lang po. Don't stress on anything at the moment. Not to put you down or anything but you seem not to have an idea on what you are going to do. Relax and read through the processes. Research, madaming makakatulong sayo dito. …
  • @MissAussie Well, base sa processing times nila, I think pwede na magfollow up yung company mo kasi lampas na dun sa naka post sa homeaffairs.
  • @MissAussie Kailan po kayo umalis ng Ph? Option 1 can probably work depending on when the nomination was submitted. Option 2 is definitely a no-no for me as you will then have to scratch everything and start from the bottom. I would say option 3.…
  • @kubera No regrets, best decision I've ever made in my entire existence. May I know what you're biggest concern is apart from migrants moving to regionals? If that's a big chunk of it, then I personally think you shouldn't be bothered.
  • @jema .Kahit screenshot lang po, pwede na.
  • Salamat po sa mga walang sawang sumasagot sa mga tanong ko :) Yong sa part po ng registration hx sa AGOS40 ang nakalagay lang naman na hinahanap nila is yong COGS sa prc, yon po bang copy ng PRC ID saka Board Certificate ipapasa din na naka cto or i…
  • @JB26 It's either you've gathered your information incorrectly or you just haven't done much research on the subject. There are thousands of webpages or "sites" as you want to call it related to this matter. There is not one single page that will t…
    in Hi guys Comment by dy3p October 2018
  • Before visa lodging for 189 or anything. You have to first be registered with AHPRA which is like the PRC in the Philippines, skills and experience assessed by ANMAC, eoi submission then later on visa application. In short, AHPRA registration will b…
    in Hi guys Comment by dy3p October 2018
  • @batman actually insurance broker ang exp nya, pero kahit ano na daw inaapplyan pero walang makuha. Hanggang interview lang.
  • @sgl663 statement of service for ahpra ba yan? Kung yung sa Ahpra, pwede yan. Saken, CRN ko alng nag sign. Pero dun sa application na ng PR, kinailangan yung from HR.
  • @sgl663 I was from UAE. there are two places where you can have your docs ctc'd, however it doesn't come cheap. From the Philippine embassy which is about 100aed/page, and from the consul or AU embassy which is 179aed/page back in 2016 yun. Nung 201…
  • Mga idol, good am! matanong ko lang po kung ano ang usual visa conditions ng 489? TY. And baka may work kayong pwede massugest, yung relative ko sa Adelaide, 6 mos na din walang work. Kahit ano na daw inaaplyan nya. ~X( Thanks thanks!
  • @its.kc basta po declare nyo nalang lahat. wala naman din mawawala, I always say na mas maganda ng honest. Even after becoming a PR, nirerequire pa din ng immi na iupdate sila ng status mo (residential address, passport etc.)
  • @Thena ok lang kahit yung ctc. wala naman magiging difference. Pero mas ok padin yung original. although considered naman yung ctc. hehe libre dito sa au ang ctc ng kahit anong document. pati mga stat decs.
  • @gibo43 thats good then. Sa lahat ba ng visa types?
  • @Thena Like I said po sa note, there are exceptions. May mga visa type that only allows you to upload after submitting the application. I think 489 pwede before application. Ang 189 parang dapat bayad muna. Kasi di magaappear yung upload documents …
  • @wittygem If that's the case, baka pwede mo ioffer na saguten mo nalang yun. Parang mas malaki mawawala sayo if ever hindi matuloy. Maraming work around na ayoko ipromote. hehe Dun tayo sa tama :)
  • @aiburry Regarding CO/RO inquiry. It is very possible po. Mines changed twice pre and post bridging. However as long as complete naman yung documents nyo, regardless kung san naisubmit, I reckon you shouldn't face any mishaps.
  • @Thena Yep pwede kana mag medical muna prior to visa lodgement. That is thru my health declaration sa immiaccount. If I remember correctly, by standards po, di kasi mag aappear yung upload button if the application is not paid. 1.) Complete onlin…
  • @leadme Hi po. Ultimately, nasa sainyo po yan, I've read so many posts about this issue and in my case, I decided to upload documents for an experience I did not claim. (COE, reference and contract). Kasi may tick box naman dun sa application form n…

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.
