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.

    Sa realestate.com.au lang ba kayo tumingin bahay? Any recommended websites?

    Paano pala naging sistema ng occupancy nyo? May agreement naba kayo nung landlord bago kayo dumating or andyan na kayo nung nghanap kayo? Salamat

    Try to search in this site:

    http://www.allhomes.com.au/ah/act/rent-residential

    Make sure you see it first in person sometimes iba yung nasa pic sa actual na istura yung loob ng bahay. Iwasan magbayad online kapag hindi pa nakikita ang bahay at nakita ng personal ang mayari ng bahay. May scammer din dito sa online na nagpopost ng bahay at iba pang properties pero hindi kanya. Kaya ingats.
