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.

Remittance Company

Anyone who can give me advises on what remittance company is good here in Australia?

I've tried Ausphil Forex, but they don't have a good service! They delayed my remittance until now and keep telling it will be sent tomorrow etc. What a poor service. Are they scam?

Please anyone can share what remittance company is good at least providing honest date to remit the money?

    @Adied....if you are in Melbourne then I can refer you to another company @ 6$ per transaction wherever you are in pinas then your recipient there can receive your remittance on that same day ( if sent before 12 noon)...

    RIA, Iremit at YES. minsan magkakaiba ang exchange rate nila.
    Their email address can be found on google. Pwede mo din sila tawagan sa numbers nila para ma compare mo ang mga exchange rates at fee nila.

    On the upper right hand corner of this webpage naka post ang Iremit. :)

    Hi KaForums,

    Try to visit www.philexpress.com.au or email [email protected], exchange rate is very competitive and if your bank is BDO in the Phil it will just take 3 hours to credit to your bank or to pick up from SM or BDO branch. If other major bank before noon then same day.

    I use forexworld. Higher ang remittance fee nila at around 8-10 dollars pero they provide good service. Madaling tawagan to follow up on anything (rarely have to except that one time nagtransfer ako ng 200k). I've done around 8 transactions with them in the past 4 months. so far so good. competitive rates din. hindi bumababa ng 40.

    I've used both OrbitRemit (https://orbitremit.com/r/U9VQIK) and Transferwise (transferwise.com/u/83e3f2). I usually compare the rates from both and then whichever is higher wins. =) If you use the link I included, you get to enjoy a free transfer for your first transaction.
