Marerefuse ang application mo. pagnakareceive ka ng invitation, up to visa grant, di dapat magbago unless single ka na nagpakasal sa isang Australian. 10 pts parin ang single and 10 points rin pag Australian ang pinakasal mo. Pero kung single ka, and nagmarry or nadefacto ka sa Non-Australian, from 10 pts, magiging zero points. > > > > > > hello. ask ko lang po what if from defacto to single - same 10 points pa rin pwede pa rin ba to? or marerefuse ang visa? > > > > Kung ano ang present status mo yun ang points mo. Lagi inuupdate yan hanggang visa grant. > > > > Single - 10 pts > > De facto - 0 pt. > > De facto with english exam and positive assessment - 10 pts > > Married to Australian - 10 pts > > Thank you! So before lodgement, ok lang na iupdate ko ang status ko from defacto to single and since same points naman walang magiging problem or di marerefuse ang visa? Safe ang magupdate ka before mainvite. Remember any changes kasi sa EOI magbabago ang date of effect. Dapat di ka magbago ang circumstance mo pagnainvite ka na up to visa grant, kasi nainvite ka dun sa circumstances mo. Magkaiba ang defacto points without english exam and positive assessment and single points. Kasi pagnainvite ka na kasi, makakreceive ka na email locked na sa EOI Number with the Date of Effect. Kung nainvite ka nagbago ang status mo, wag mo na kunin ang invite, kaso may mga states na hindi ka iinvite for a year ata (sayang naman), yes dadami ang iinvite nila, PERO marami kayo napending sa 2020-2022, kaya precious ang invite. Paghindi mo kukunin ang invite, pwede mo iupdate ang EOI mo. Pagnaglodge ka kasi, makakareceive ka ng email na hindi muna magagamit ang EOI mo. Monitor your spam email. Kung minsan dun napupunta ang invitation

For lawfully operating Australian and overseas employers to employ approved skilled workers for temporary vacancies in particular occupations required in Australia. Temporary visas can offer a pathway to a permanent visa.
> @jeralds said: > @kayemee question po, medyo desperate na po ako makaalis ng pilipinas. Na off load po ako sa flight ko last saturday night, kasi hinanapan po ako ng OEC. Honest mistake po, since wala talaga ako alam about sa OEC, and hindi ko alam na considered na pala ako na OFW. > Naka TSS 482 visa ako ngayon sa australia po(student before). Nag emergency vacation lang to visit parents na ma-edad na. > Then nung nasa airport na ako, hinanapan ako ng OEC. And ayun, hindi ako pinalusot sa immigration. > Nakaka stress sobra na rin, kasi hindi magawa ng employer na sila mismo mag process ng Verified Contract sa POLO Canberra. Then nag hihintay na rin trabaho sa australia. > > Kaya rin po ba kaya na mag SG ako or other country(with return ticket to PH), then book ako sa SG(or other country) naman ng flight ko going to australia? para sa SG na ako mag "exit" > > patulong po sana :( > maraming salamat po! One of the option po yung cross country to bypass yung OEC if you want to take a chance. Pero not sure po ako if makakalusot ka since na-offload ka recently. Baka may keep track sila ng record mo.
> @marchbaby said: > Hello po, first time processing tourist visa po. applicant is my daughter. Nasa Required* section nia to provide previous travel history pero if no previous travel ano pong action to be taken? can i leave it blank? So your daughter has never travelled outside of the PH? Have you tried movingon to next part of the application if you try leaving it blank?

> @mamertz said: > Hello, I have never been to Dubai. But I worked in Qatar for 12 years. Medyo similar lang naman kasi parehas Middle East. So palagay ko, pwede ko i-share ang opinion ko dito. > > Kung papipiliin, AUS na tayo. > > Maganda ang MidEast, kung ang habol mo lang ay kumita. Why not? Walang tax, makukuha mo ang salary mo nang buo. In addition, maganda benefits ng mga professionals sa Mid East. Kung ang habol mo lang ay kumita, at makaipon, at bumalik ng Pinas kapag matanda ka na, piliin mo ang Mid East. > > Pero kung ang habol mo ay overall quality of life, bukod sa magandang sahod, Aus na tayo. Mas relaxed ang buhay dito. Noong nasa Qatar ako, para akong alipin ng sistema. Walang balanse between work and life. Puro kayod. Pag uwi ng bahay, pagod na pagod na ako. > > Dito mas masaya at mas maluwag ang buhay at trabaho. Maganda ang tanawin, hindi puro buhangin. Madali makapasyal. Less ang stress and mas accomodating ang mga tao sa paligid. > > Hindi mainit gaya sa Mid East. Makakapamuhay ang mga anak ko nang masaya, at makakalaro sa labas. > > Kung PR ka, less expenses sa schooling din ng mga anak compared sa Mid East. > > Also, life in MidEast looks so temporary. Yun bang alam mo na anytime, maaari papauwiin ka ng Pinas. No chances of becoming a citizen. > In Aus, you can establish a permanent life here once you become a citizen. I definitely agree with this. If temporary stay and money making opportunities, Dubai is a good choice. But over all long term for a person and his family, I'd choose Au.
Hello, I have many physiotherapist friends; I am an occupational therapist. The majority of my physio friends came to the Australia with permanent residency or a work visa. According to what I've heard, they must take written and practical examinations, but the good news is that they can do so while working in Australia as Physio.
> @maguero said: > @jakibantiles Pag PR na pwede na pumili dun sa bronze, silver, gold packages. Iba na yung rate kesa dun sa foreign worker health cover na inooffer sa non-PR. So baka yung lowest level of cover will already satisfy the Medicare Levy Surcharge requirement. Thank you po. Inadvise ng Bupa na magbasic accident cover kami, para masatisfy yung MLS. Bale $140 na lang ang monthly payment, dating $250 for a couple. Nung unang tax refund ko sa MLS umabot ng $790, 5mos in sa financial year. Madodoble kaya yun this year kasi nakabuo kami ng 1yr na walang medicare?
Hi. Would like to follow up po dito sa question. Does anyone of you know how to transfer money from PHILIPPINES to AUSTRALIA aside from western union, or bank transfer. I checked (Wise, World Remit, Remitly) but they can only send from Australia to Philippines not vice versa. Hope anyone can share on how we can send money to Australia in an inexpensive way. Thank you.
Naming Naming Conventions Australian names generally follow English naming conventions. Overseas-born Australians generally adapt their names to fit these conventions in formal documents. English naming conventions arrange names as follows: [first given name] [middle given name(s)] [FAMILY NAME]. For example, Jack Samuel ADAMS (male) or Emily Claire TAYLOR (female). One’s ‘first name’, known as a ‘personal name’ or ‘given name’, is chosen at birth as the individual’s personal identifier. It always comes before the family name. The ‘family name’, known as a ‘surname’ or ‘last name’, is inherited from one’s parents and shared with other members of the individual’s immediate family. Australian names are traditionally patrilineal, whereby children are given their father’s family name. However, this is not an enforced custom. Some parents may choose to give their children a hyphenated surname that contains the family name of both parents (e.g. Jack Samuel WILSON-ADAMS). A child born to same-sex parents can be registered with the family name of either parent or both parents. A child born to unmarried parents will be registered using the birth mother’s surname, unless both parents agree to use another surname.1 It is traditional for women to adopt their husband’s family name at marriage. However, this practice is declining. Many Australians also have a ‘middle name’, which is a secondary personal name written between the person's first name and their family name. For example, Emily Claire TAYLOR’s middle name is ‘Claire’. Middle names are optional and are rarely used in daily life. However, most Australians have one or multiple. Names Most Australian parents choose their children’s personal names based on aesthetic appeal. Many popular names have biblical roots, e.g. Joshua, Michael, Grace. More recently, it has been the trend for Australians to choose names that they find unique. These are usually names that are less traditionally common in the English-speaking west and are hence seen as more unique. Sometimes they are variations of a western name with a different spelling. The most popular first names for Australian children in 2020 were Charlotte, Olivia, Amelia, Isla, Mia (female) and Oliver, Noah, Jack, William, Leo (male).2 It is common for a child’s middle name to reflect the personal name of a close family member (such as a grandparent). The most common Australian family names have a British origin, e.g. SMITH, JONES, WILLIAMS, BROWN, WILSON. Other family names reflect the broad cultural, linguistic and geographic diversity of Australian families. For example, Jeremy SCHULTZ (German), Hannah NGUYEN (Vietnamese), Ashley MURPHY (Irish), Dylan WANG (Chinese). Australian law requires names to be registered with English letters only. Therefore, some foreign names may have various spelling in the transliteration to the Roman alphabet. Addressing Others Australians generally address one another verbally by the first name alone. In formal situations, people may use a person’s title (e.g. Mr., Mrs., Ms., Doctor, etc.) followed by their family name. Middle names are almost never used to address a person, unless quoted on formal/legal documentation. Australians often form nicknames for each other by abbreviating the name to a minimal amount of syllables (e.g. Michael becomes Mike). It is common for people to be given an ‘Australianised’ nickname that turns their name into Australian slang (e.g. Barry becomes Baz, Andy becomes Ando). These are often used within close friendships to emphasise mateship. Australians may refer to others as “mate” (usually to men) or “love” (usually to women) without knowing them very closely. https://culturalatlas.sbs.com.au/australian-culture/australian-culture-naming

Accessible to supermarkets -- wala po akong kotse so kelangan walking distance lg or a few bus stops away. 4. No flooding -- walang may gusto nito. 5. Ok lng na medyo malayo sa CBD -- Work-from-home ako. Ngtingin-tingin na din po ako sa Google reviews and https://www.realestate.com.au, pero iba pa rin ang recommendation ng kapwa pinoy. Appreciate any ideas or recommendation po.

At kung drafter po sa anong skill po ba sya dapat ipaassess, salamat po. You can still come on a work visa but the skilled migrant visa has an age limit of 45 years old...you must be invited to apply before you turn 45. Applications for a permanent skilled visa after you turn 45 is extremely limited unless you are a high income earner applicant . You must be atleast 3 years on a work visa with a minimum income of $158,500 for each of the 3 years prior to application.
