PDOS for PR visa holder updates

Hello sa lahat. May mga nakakaalam po ba sa nyo kung anu status ng mga PR holder if need pa ba umattend ng PDOS at kumuha ng CFO sticker prior travelling to OZ? I have a friend kc na nag sabi saken na when she and her children traveled to oz eh hndi na sila hinanapan ng PDOS at CFO sticker passport and visa grant lang ang hinanap sa knila. May bagong update kaya regarding dito? That time hindi pa cla PR holder I think under sila ng visa ng husband niya. I tried to contact CFO Manila kaso nung tumawag ako automatic operator lang sumagot kya hindi makapag tanong. Salamat sa sasagot confused lang talaga hehe.

    If you have lived in Au for 2 years (regardless of the visa prior to PR), hindi mo na kailangang magseminar. Punta ka lang to pay and get the CFO sticker. Hindi ko lang alam kung pwede kang magwalk in kasi we needed to register online for our appointment in their office.
    May nabanggit din dito sa forum before na nagbayad na lang sila sa airport nung hinanap yung CFO sticker nila.

    @alfonso31 I’m not 100% sure kung pwede yung 1yr. Try mo na lang iask pagdating mo sa ofice nila or call again during their office hours. Yes, hinahanap yung CFO sa airport.

    @alfonso31 walang expiration yun, gaya ng sabi ko, it’s a once off thing. It’s just to orient those who will be coming to Au.

    Hi! Question lang sana para sa mga nakapag PDOS na. Naka schedule ako and my partner for tomorrow (2-4pm). Alam niyo ba anong oras siya natatapos, saktong 4 kaya kaya matapos or earlier? Tinignan ko yung schedule & since 12nn daw dapat andoon na nagbabakasakali ako. Kailangan ko palang makabalik ng QC ng 5pm and tinignan ko 1hr travel time na drive mula doon. Mayroon din bang may alam kung may parking doon mismo? Sabi kasi sa waze nearest parking sa Sunway International Manpower Servicer (?) eh hindi ako pamilyar sa area. Salamat!

    @fioning1120 yung sken mam though hndi nman for family apply ko sa pdos, napansin ko lng nung andun na ko chinecheck pa rn nla yung mga nilagay ko. May mga pinalitan pa nga cla. Kung baga ifill up mo lng yung alam mo na tama tapos cla na mag cocorrect dun sa counter sa cfo. Though tatanungin ka rn nman nla at ipapareview sau dun sa mga nakalagay na info.

    Mga Sir/Madam good afternoon. So to summarized po, need p dn ng PDOS/CFO even though you're PR? Mjo nalilito po kc aq ksi my agent is insisting n di n need. Pero may mga nakapagsabi here s forum n need CFO. Since my time p dn po kmi before BM, so better take nlng? thnks. God Bless

    @BARTMANGK Yes, you need it especially if you will be coming from the Philippines going to Australia. Immigration in the Philippines will look for the CFO sticker in your passport.

    If you’ll be departing from Sg, then there’s no need for it yet.

    @Cassey noted. My next question po is based s CFO website as per attached photo, saka k lng pwede book ng ticket after seminar?. kc mggaling p po kmi ng SG and we could only attend PDOS after. By that time im worried mahal n ticket. But if yan po tlgA ang rules, den wala po tyo mggwa. thank you po s makkapagdvise! HAve a nice dAY.
  • alfonso31alfonso31 Posts: 307Member
    @BARTMANGK try mo muna sir kumuha ng appointment sa pdos. Every tuesday ang sked for australia at 50 slots per week. Sa tingin ko rn sir almost same dn ang price ng ticket to au. Kc since november pa ko nag checheck ng flight then yung ticket ko ng april almost same lng ng price ng november (PAL).

    @BARTMANGK Check the available slots for PDOS. Kapag may appointment ka na, then pwede ka ng magbook ng tickets ninyo or kung alam mo nman na you’ll be staying in Ph for a while then pwede ka na ring magbook.

    @BARTMANGK okay lang magbook ng ticket on your own. Madami ding gumagawa ng ganoon. Sa PDOS kasi iinform nila kayo na may promo for new migrants na add 1pc baggage and 20% discount if bibili kayo ng ticket sa agency na accredited nila. Pero for other people like myself mas mura pa din overall if makahanap ng murang ticket (ie Ceb Pac). Depende pa din sa gusto niyo talaga. :)
