      I suggest to take TESDA course in the Philippines as backup. Here in Perth ang dami trady skills needed. Mechanical fitter, forklift operator, floor tilers, electricians, welders and plumbers ang skilled needed. Difficult makahanap dito ng engineer as a profession and will take time before you could settle. So go on other states din kasi Ako dito sa Perth hirap din kasi bagsak now ang mining

    hi Sir, Mech Engineer po kayo? Mahirap po bang mgapply sa Aus ng work as Mech Engr?

    • jedh_g
      jedh_g
      Yes I am. I had been advised by my fellow mechanical engineers who were in australia already that at the start, you need local experience as aussie employers had different views on accepting a practicing filipino engineer in general. In short, you need to prove what you know and local employer is a must for a couple of months. Marami naman work sa buildings, construction, off shore petroleum and mining but mostly ngayon bagsak industry. You simply just got to try everything to know and attest the job market.

    Hello @jedh_g, thanks for sending me your reviewers! NakapagPTE na ako although hindi ko nakuha yung target ko and sobrang sayang kasi 3 points na lang!! LRSW - 85 76 81 80. Okay lang! Ayoko na ulit magtake! hehe. Anyway, I just noticed sa signature mo, visa grant ka na, congrats!

    I just have some questions para makapagdecide ako kung ano next ko gagawin. I plan to apply for visa 189 sana kasi total points ko as of now is 60 lang: 15 school, 5 work, 30 age, 10 language. para sure sana mainvite, gusto ko try yung 189. here are my questions:
    - ilan total points mo nung nagEOI?
    - yung sa 189 po ba, magaapply ka for a specific state or walang choice?
    - may additional fee?

    Super thankssss!!!

      Hello Karla. Here are my answer to your queries:

      1. At first, I got 55 pts overall in my EOI after taking IELTS (no credit on visa points as I have 6.0 under listening band, the rest is 7.0 each). Then I decided to take PTE to increase my visa points and GOD made it possible to have it arrived to 55+10 which made it 65 pts on EOI under visa 189 and with 70 pts under visa 190. Note, I have received 2 invites for each visa types consecutively within 2 weeks with the aid of our migration agent.

      2. Visa 189 is state free PR condition where you could live and work without state condition. This means, go where your work is and live where your family wanted to. Unlike Visa 190, you are tied up to the state where you put an allegiance to for 2 years. For me, if your visa points is 65 points above, go for visa 189. There is more advantage.

      3. Additional fee applies for visa 190 as this is the process after you get invited:
      3.1) say for NSW invitation, you have to pay 300 AUD for state nomination application
      *there are also Victoria, Western Australia, Canberra visa 190 options etc.
      3.2) wait until the state approves your application, how long? it depends; prof. based
      3.3) pay the visa fee after you receive the invitation to apply for visa

      Don't loose hope. I knew the feeling! God bless

    1. Apply for a Tax File Number (TFN)
    Do this first. To receive an income in Australia, you need a Tax File Number (TFN). Income includes wages or salary from a job, payments from the government, and money earned from investments including interest on savings accounts.

    In Australia, you can telephone the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and have a TFN application form sent to you. Alternatively, you can apply for a TFN over the internet.

    You may find the contact details of the ATO here:
    https://www.ato.gov.au/about-ato/about-us/contact-us/phone-us/



    2. Register with Medicare
    The Australian Government provides help with basic medical expenses through a scheme called Medicare. You may be eligible to join Medicare and gain immediate access to health care services and programs. These include free public hospital care, help with the cost of out-of-hospital care, and subsidised medicines.

    To enrol in Medicare, you should go into a Medicare office 7 to 10 days after your arrival in Australia and bring your passport or travel documents. There are also many different private health insurance options you may wish to consider, as Medicare does not provide for all services.

    Examples: Medicare does not cover dental care, most optical care or ambulance services.The table below provides contact details for Medicare Australia

    You may find the contact details of Medicare here:
    http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/contact-us/phone-us



    3. Open a bank account
    In Australia, most income including salary or wages and government benefits are paid directly into a bank account.

    You should open a bank account within six weeks of your arrival, as you usually need only your passport as identification. After six weeks you will need extra identification to open an account.

    Further information on banking is available, please see:
    http://www.bankers.asn.au/smarter-banking/default.html
    https://www.commbank.com.au/personal/can/moving-to-australia.html
    http://movingtoaustralia.anz.com/global/en/why-open-a-bank-account/benefits/



    4. Register with Centrelink
    Centrelink is a government agency which delivers a range of services to the community.

    Centrelink contributes to the social and economic outcomes set by government by delivering services to assist people to become self-sufficient and supporting those in need.

    Centrelink can help you find a job, arrange for recognition of your skills and qualifications, and to access certain courses.

    Centrelink can also help you with Family Assistance payments to help with the cost of raising children.

    As a newly arrived migrant, you are not immediately eligible for social security (unless you are a refugee or humanitarian entrant). You do not have access to the full range of government employment services. If you are a permanent resident, you may be eligible to access some services.

    You may contact Centrelink here:
    http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/dhs/centrelink



    5. Register for English Classes
    Communicating in English is very important and the key to your successful settlement.

    English languages courses for new arrivals in Australia are provided under the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP). As a new resident, you may be entitled to receive free English language tuition of up to 510 hours. Register as soon as possible or you could lose your entitlement.

    To know more about AMEP, please see:
    http://www.education.gov.au/amep



    6. Enrol Your Children in School
    Under Australian law, children must generally attend school from the ages of five to 15 years old. You should enrol your children in a school as soon as possible.

    The government provides free education in public schools (students holding temporary visas may be required to pay full school fees). Many students also attend private schools operated by some churches and other groups, but these students are required to pay fees for these schools.

    Further information:
    https://education.gov.au/
    http://studyassist.gov.au/sites/StudyAssist/



    7. Apply for a Driver's Licence
    Drivers’ licences are issued by state and territory governments and usually require applicants to pass a knowledge test, a practical driving test and an eyesight test. A person cannot drive without a valid licence.

    Holders of permanent resident visas are allowed to drive in Australia for the first three months after arrival, provided they have a current driver’s licence from another country in English (or with an official translation).

    After this period, they need to have an appropriate Australian driver’s licence.

    PLEASE NOTE:
    If you are a permanent resident visa holder and have a current driver's licence from another country, in English or with an official translation, in most states and territories you are allowed to drive for your first three months after arrival.

    In Tasmania, the three month period begins from when you are granted your permanent residency visa, not from when you arrive in Australia. If you were granted a permanent visa 3 months or more before your arrival in Australia you will have to apply for an Australian licence before you can drive in that state.

    Important contact details:
    • Life threatening emergency (fire, police, ambulance) – Telephone: 000
    • Translating and Interpreting Service National (TIS National) – Telephone: 131 450
    • Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) – Telephone 131 881
