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.

    @ginpomelo kung PR, madalas hindi naman hihingiin ang mga ito:
    Deed of Absolute Sale for Condo
    ORCR of Car
    Joint Bank Account SOA

    Unless i-require na magprovide ng proof of financial capacity. Most of the time, declaration lang.

    For all documents, have them notarized.

    @ginpomelo nasagot ka na nila. Hehe. Wag ka magmadali kung wala ka pang ITA kasi mabilis naman din ung result ng medical. Mahirap din kung sakali na maiksi ang time nyo for IED kasi minsan sa expiry ng medical nakabased ang IED. :)

    @ClmOptimist All of the big 4 banks (ANZ, CBA, NAB, Westpac) have migrant banking facilities and can receive international wire transfers.

    Just go to your branch of account and ask how to do a wire or a SWIFT transfer, BPI calls it "outward remittance". ANZ should give you a one-pager on what's your BSB, account number, and SWIFT code so you get the money routed properly.

    Hi @carlosau yes pwedeng pwede. Yung kinuha naman namin ay NAB Migrant Banking. Opened online, transferred online din. Pero pag dating mo ng Au kailangan mo pumunta sa branch of choice mo, for the verification of documents. Once verified, dun ka pa lang pwede mag withdraw ng pera na trinansfer mo.

    Hi everyone, quick question: Can you create an Australian bank account and deposit money to it WHILE in the PH?

    Yes. We opened an account on Commbank just recently. They have a savings account specifically for new migrants.

    In my opinion lang po, if you are confident that both of you are healthy (walang history ng lung-related or blood-related diseases) magpa medical kayo after ITA na lang. if mayron kayo history ng nabanggit ko, pamedical na kayo ng mas maaga kasi yung iba may required treatment pa or further tests pa which is it will take few days or weeks before the results come out.

    NBI, kung nagka Hit na kayo before, ok kumuha na kayo ng mas maaga. Kung no-hit naman kayo dati, after ITA na lang din.

    Yung Medical & Police Clearance kasi can affect when would be your Initial Entry Date. Eh usually 12months lang validity ng Medical/NBI. So pag na grant na yung visa nyo baka less than 6months na lang para sa IED nyo. Pero kung hindi naman din issue yun, you can go ahead. Personal preference ika nga :D

    And yes tama asikasuhin nyo na yung form 80/1221 :)

    Since the ongoing topic is about FTB-A/B.
    Question: if I were to claim FTB-B but I am going to migrate ahead of my family, when am I supposed to claim it?

    BM ko eligible na ako agad kahit wala pa family ko, or sa BM ng wife at son ko pa?

    TIA :D

    @Birthmark ang pagkakaintindi ko base sa explanation ng staff sa centrelink, may mga income test and need eligible ang anak mo before they will give assistance through FTB B. So kailangan ang presence nila dito
