    @agentKams hi! I'd like to ask if kinailangan mo magpa-skills assessment for the 485 visa (as a CPA)? And Completion Letter lng from uni yung isusubmit diba, not necessarily yung diploma?

    @athelene hi iyong postgraduate pathway di na required iyong skills assessment. Completion letter and Transcript, no need for the diploma.

    @athelene health exam is required pag more than 12 months na iyong last medicals niyo. AFP lang sinumbit namin, required form 80. kung ano iyong nasa document checklist iyong lang sinunod namin.

    kailangan mong maghanap ng slot para sa anak mo para maaccomodate sa school so as early as possible mas maganda go to your prospect school and enquire with them. pag kinder anak mo you need to go to the council first pero kung prep ang anak mo you can go directly sa school. and since naka 485 visa ka na yong local rates na ng school ang applicable sa anak mo. hope it helps

    @danyan2001us hello po. I read you took up accounting. With the graduate visa po, did you find a job easily? Kasi diba the visa allows only 2 years less? Sorry very new here.

    @dreamer_mom hello, dito ako base sa qld, so ewan ko kung same sa other state. After ko grumaduate ng november nagtry kami ienrol ang anak ko sa catholic school telling them na makukuha namin iyong 485 visa by January. They came back to us na we need to pay international fee since hindi pa effective iyong 485 visa namin. We approached other schools, this time private na and they accepted my daughter to go to prep as domestic student. Kung may school na kayong target better to inquire ahead para makapagprepare kayo ng plan B.
