      Anybody here in the Philippines who successfully traveled to and from Australia, I need an answer for this paragraph from my Visa Grant Fact Sheet. It says there, "There are guidelines on departure formalities for all international bound Philippine nationals", and when I opened the link it provided this is the message from the Australian Embassy in the Philippines' website:

      "There are guidelines on departure formalities for all international bound Philippine nationals
      The Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) conducts a mandatory Guidance and Counselling Program for departing Filippino spouses, fiance and other partners of foreign nationals.

      All Philippines nationals travelling to Australia should check with the CFO in order to comply with exit requirements. This applies equally to whether you hold a temporary or permanent Australian visa.

      Failure to comply with the CFO requirements may result in delays departing the Philippines.

      Further information can be found on the following Philippines Government websites:

      See: Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO)

      See: Bureau of Immigration (BI)

      See: Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA)"

      Do I need to arrange an appointment with CFO prior departure? My flight is already on Wednesday, I am really worried about this.

      Thanks you for your answers "kababayan".

      God bless us all

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.
