    Ang sabi if we have stayed in Australia for a minimum of 2 yrs no need to attend the seminar pero we need to drop by pa din sa CFO. We just need to bring proof like medicare or TFN. @mimic

    Hello everyone. Pinuntahan ko itong PDOS last month. Hindi na ako ni-require umattend ng seminar dahil almost 2 years na rin ako sa Australia, pero pinagbayad pa rin ako ng Php400 para sa kapirasong sticker na may pirma na idinikit sa passport ko. Nung umalis ako ng Pinas last Sunday, hinanap nung NAIA immigration officer yung sticker.

    Hi @Cassey, 11.30am ata ako dumating dun. You have to be there 2 hours before your scheduled PDOS (2-4pm ang schedule for AU/NZ-bound attendees). Within 30minutes nakuha ko na yung sticker.

    @Cassey I think okay lang na pumunta ka doon ng opening time nila kasi malamang exempted ka na rin sa seminar. Diretso payment at sticker ka na.

    Hi, just want to share para sa mga tumira na sa Au for 2yrs up, exempted na po tayo sa PDOS pero need pa rin nating magregister. The whole process just took 15-20 mins. Need po nating kumuha ng appointment online. On the appointment date, pwede ng magpunta sa office as early as their opening time. Pagdating inform lang sa information desk na we've been in Au for years. Bibigyan tayo ng number which will appear sa screen then sa counter we just need to let them know of our situation, ichecheck yung passport and yung visa grant notification din. After this, magbabayad na, then magaantay na tawagin yung name for the collection of passport na may sticker. Ang payment is P400 per applicant. :) Madali lang siya, we went there at 10Am, walang masyadong tao.

    Question po. Sa case po ba na nagrenew ng passport at yung CFO sticker nandun sa old passport, kailangan lang ba ipakita yung old passport with the CFO sticker sa immigration pagpapunta na ng Aus?

    Kailangan din po ba umattend ng dependent ng visa 189 sa PDOS? Or principal applicant lang?

    @GSW Yes they need to attend as well unless they're children aged 12 yrs and below. Kapag within this range of age, di na need umattend pero need pa rin silang iregister and pay P400. :)
