Reaction Stats & Counts



  • sorry no idea ako sa specific remittance company kasi I use paymaya to pay premiums.
  • I don't think SSS would have an office outside the Philippines. Some remittance companies do accept payments for SSS contributions but due to changes in the way SSS accepts payments. SSS now requires that you generate a PRN before paying contributio…
  • @Akijo Basic vaccinations are as follows: dTpa - 1 adult formulation or 1 booster dose if more than 10 years ago MMR - 2 doses 1 month apart HepaB - age appropriate AND anti-HBs (serology) count of more than 10 Varicella - 1 dose or evidence of chic…
  • if you have a roaming sim, get an account with, Paymaya... GCash is not working with SSS at the moment. you can transfer cash from your Phil bank accounts and pay SSS and other government agencies.
  • @Korenai As I mentioned earlier, better clarify first with IHNA kung for Division 1 or Division 2 ang program nila. I have a feeling kasi na baka for Division 2. Pero kung for Division 1 din naman, also clarify kung yung fees for OBA ay kasabay na …
  • @Korenai no need for OBA if you're a graduate of Aussie Uni.
  • @manpi It would be helpful if you can provide more details regarding your experience and background prior to getting AHPRA registration. AHPRA only requires 450 hours of experience/nursing practice to be registered and this is only about 3-4 months …
  • @Korenai I am not familiar with the course so I won't be able to give an objective assessment. Do clarify with the school if this qualifies you for either for Division 1 (Registered Nurse) or for Division 2 (Enrolled Nurse) registration.
  • @ilovemichie No idea ako sa ibang schools but with ACN you cannot go into clinicals without having complete vaccinations.
  • @ilovemichie did you have anti-HBs serology prior to having vaccination? Baka na naman mataas na ang anti-HBs count mo at booster lang needed rather than another full course of HepB vaccines. I presume na nagpa-vaccine ka na dati.
  • @pautylips I think most of the required documents will still be the same. The only thing is that we do not know what is the exact process and if the fees will still be the same. At least if you submit now, by the time they implement the new pathway,…
  • Sa mga my dependent po dto. Ask ko lang po paano kayo nag subsequent visa? Kasabay ba mga dependents nung mag-lodge ng sponsorship ang employer? Kung nasabay, nasa immi naman ang link para sa subsequent entrants. Pag di nasabay, I think kailangan pa…
  • @emmalyn Kung sobra naman sa required count no need na siguro for booster shot... am not sure pero an anti-HBc serology might be needed...
  • @ning Be sure that the following is indicated in the reference letter 1. Your name 2. Your Job title - e.g. staff nurse 3. Department 4. Full time/Part Time 5. No of hours (daily or weekly) 6. Job description 7. other info that the referee may want…
  • @emmalyn sorry sa late reply.. no idea po ako kung saan mura magpa-vaccinate dyan sa area mo. Required din naman kasi yung booster for dTpa at MMR so ok lang magpa-vaccinate ulit. HepB magpa-serology ka na lang at kung ok naman ang surface antibody …
  • @emmalyn Saan po ba location mo. For vaccinations visit a pedia clinic... for serology HepB lang naman ang kailangan kse pwede naman ulitin ang ibang vaccinations like MMR, dTpa.
  • @DreamerA Kung may mga financial documents naman ang mother or aunt mo (real estate, bank accounts, etc), I would suggest that you just send an invitation letter rather than sponsorship kung for tourist/visitor purpose lang naman. Kailangan lang nam…
  • @Ferlz_cebuana makuratan lang nga nagsakay sa train unya binisaya ang sulti... daghan pud uy.
  • @danjoe03 It seems that AHPRA/NMBA will be following the UK model but specifics have not been published yet.
  • Hi goodpm po.. tnong ko lng..may statutory declaration form po b kelngang fillupan pra sa written statemnt from friends and family? ang Stat Dec ay kung citizen or PR ang mag fillup at sa Australia pipirmahan. Otherwise an affidavit shall be used in…
  • @krizia You will need to be an AuRN first before expecting to be sponsored, which means you will undergo the registration process via Bridging Program, outcomes-based-assessment (by around mid-2019), or nursing conversion course. Here are some sub-f…
  • @margarettepaglinawan It seems that AHPRA does not recognize internationally quafied Enrolled Nurses... there's no bridging program for that and the recognized degrees are on the average 18-24 month program of Australian institutions. As such, you w…
  • @Cassey sa site po ba ng AHPRA makikita yong list of schools na nag ooffer po ng IRON? baka po pwede pa forward yong link nila salamat po :) The current list of approved bridging programs and schools can be found here.
  • @KIKO I see sir, question lang, can you share yung exact requirements or link to where I can verify ung documentary requirements na kailangan ni AHPRA? I can't seem to locate kasi sa website nila mismo ung mga requirements. May checklist sa 2nd to …
  • @sha_Brisbane See this link for information on the new outcomes-based-assessment pathway for internationally qualified nurses.
  • @sha_Brisbane See this link for information on the new assessment pathway for internationally qualified nurses.
  • @ayyay Depending on what visa you are applying, you can generate HAP ID using your immi account. However it is advisable to do the medicals pag sure ka nang mag lodge ng visa application. Bear in mind valid lang medicals for 1 year or even 6 months …
    in Medical Comment by cucci October 2018
  • @SGtoAU Yes po, you can request amendments during the medicals.
    in Medical Comment by cucci October 2018
  • @Akijo @danjoe03 You don't submit originals po sa AHPRA except for those that come directly from PRC, CHED and school. Bear in mind you will be needing some of those docs again at ANMAC assessment and visa application, if applicable. You should also…
  • @jerapra Due to the age factor, the other criteria for points must be maximized as @fgs has mentioned. So superior English is a must. The next best thing is to enter the Australian job market as sponsored employee with TSS (482) visa, excel in the j…
  • @[email protected] Kung di pa naman submitted, you can always press the link sa bottom ng page to go back to the previous page.
  • May bagong passport na po ba using the new family name? My opinion is wait na lang muna for the ITA kasi once na mag change ka details, your application date will now be based on when you submitted the changes. Afterall, once may ITA na you can use …
  • @[email protected] Ipa-certified true copy mo lang po sa notary public.
  • @velvetcake1214 Eto po ata ang gamit na form ng ECU. Most of the requirements are adult vaccines naman. I think ang relevant na nasa baby book ay yung para varicella para sa chicken pox. Otherwise you can have booster shots na. HepB will require boo…
  • @jvs_mmm If the question is simply "pwede ba i-withdraw", of course, that is your prerogative but it's another case if you intend to ask for a refund of the visa application fees. You can of course, request for a refund but it will be up to the DoHA…
  • @yennerz13 Mahirap mag comment kasi di ko naman po alam current status mo at ang details ng bawat isa sa mga applicants. I presume di pa naman age 75 up ang mom mo kse otherwise hindi pwede ang online application. However, if all documents are in p…
  • @yennerz13 A single immi account can process visa application for others. Be sure to create a group for those who will be travelling as a group or as family for easier processing. I think all applications pass through the same Case Officer when comi…
  • @annafonz Considering the age factor, the bp pathway would have been the fastest. However, AHPRA will be doing away with the BP sometime next year in favor of the outcomes-based-assessment (OBA) pathway towards registration for internationally quali…
  • @velvetcake1214 Yes po, better start/have your vaccinations now and be sure to get certifications for each. Depending on the state may mga specific forms din na pwede mong magamit to record them with certifications attached. This is for NSW. Actuall…
  • @velvetcake1214 AFAIK vaccinations as dTpa, MMR, HepaB and TB screening is a government/state requirement which the schools/unis implement. The primary reason is to protect you and your patients during clinical exposures.

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.
