Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

    I have an expat Japanese friend and I used to ask her the same question because I know a lot of Aussies who moved to Japan to teach English and for better environment.

    Mas achieve daw kasi sa Australian ang work-life balance. Hindi stressful Hindi masyadong encouraged ang OT lalo na sa workplace na mas maraming locals or locally-owned (my work, Australian employer) pero meron pa ding workplace (like my husband's, Malaysian-Chinese owned) na mataas ang stress levels at puro OT.

    May medicare din dito, at maraming support from the government. Not entirely sure with Japanese government, have to double check this.

    Pero overall, sabi nya income wise, mas masarap kumita sa Australia. :smile:

    Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

    Maraming tax rito, pero kita naman sa infrustructure at services na provided by the Australian government kaya di na rin masakit. Ang masasabi ko, maganda magpalaki ng bata rito, napaka tahimik ng buhay at simple.

    Mataas ang equality rate, kung nakakapag steak ang mayaman, kaya din kumain ng steak ng below middle class.

    @Hana magastos din dito. madami din binabayaran. hindi biro ang bayarin dito. pero kailangan mo isipin long term. kung wala ka chance mag citizen diyan, wala ka kasigurahan. eto lang sa akin, if may chance ka mag pr dito, mag or ka na dito. if work visa ang offer sa yo dito, timbangin mo na. pero take into consideration na dito, madami galeng work visa na nasponsor ng company para maging PR. not sure sa japan. but honestly, if ganda lang ng lugar, japan ako hehe. ganda ng japan eh.
