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.

    @osss uu, employed pa din at offshore. Wala nga ako natanggap n rejection letter. ginamit ko naman un format sa CV at cover letter n andun sa seek. Hehehe. Ewan. Siguro two weeks before magBig move ako bago n lang muna nag-apply ulit. Hehehe.
    Un nga nacocontact nga agad ay onshore so kailangan talaga n irisk magpunta ng walang work. In the first place, permanent resident un visa natin, indi naman working visa.
    Keep in touch n lang dito hehehe hanggang sa matanggap n tyo sa first job sa Australia. :)

Pero refer daw nila ako. So when i arrived last Feb 10, the following day may interview ako. And on 3rd day i got a job offer. I will start next week na.
