    Para san ba talaga ung CFO? Is it really required? Depende ba sa type of visa un? Kasi never ako hinanapan nung first entry ko, pati mga sumunod ko entries.

    I did inquire sa CFO if required ako, they said yes, but i never attended one of their seminars.

    It is, pag permanent , once lang naman kailangan umattend pag permanent visa ka, otherwise pagbalik sa Ph from a visa at nakitang permanent ka at walang CFO EMIGRANT STICKER, denied exit ka kahit nanggaling ka na AU

    Congrats sa mga mag BM!

    few questions:

    eto ang planned sequence for fixing things up upon arrival:


    Mobile Number AU (Optus preferred, any kiosks in the Airport?)

    Centrelink CRN
    ATO TFN
    Bank Account ( Any suggestions?)
    Medicare
    .
    .
    .
    White Card ( Might be working in the Construction Industry)
    .
    .
    .
    Driving License ( within 3 months?)

    anything I missed?

    Thank you and good day!

    P.S.

    BM on the 16th of July, Melbourne Area, together with my now-wife ( 189 visa, De-facto, Direct Grant)

    Ibump ko lang ulit, salamat sa answers :-)

    @arcsump i think ok naman yung mga nilista mo. Antayin din natin inputs ng iba.. Although, suggestion ko gumawa ka na ng bank account. online lang yun. Para pag dating nyo ay document verification na lang sa physical branch office. Personally kami ni wifey magkaiba kami ng bank. NAB sya, Commonwealth Bank ako. Ok sa NAB walang maintaining balance. Sa Commbank may 4$ charge kapag walang pumapasok na 2k aud every month (most major banks ata ganun, NAB lang naiba). Search nyo lang NAB Migrant banking. Ok din yang aasikasuhin agad yung driver's license, kasi form of valid ID yan.

    Compared to Victoria (Melb), mas mataas cost of living sa NSW (Syd). Lalo na ang rent or purchase price ng bahay, mahal sa nsw...

    Use numbeo.com when comparing itemised cost per cities. They are pretty on the mark

    @iam_rc required talaga po yung CFO sticker for PRs. And just like you’ve said, you have inquired to CFO and they did told you its required. Its completely up to you if you don’t want to comply, since nakakalusot ka naman. Kaso kung machambahan ka’t hindi ka pasakayin due to not having the CFO sticker, wala ka magagawa, maha-hassle ka lang..

    Hi Guys! kaka BM ko lang nitong July 7. Hello sa inyo! - Melbourne pala ko Werribee suburb titira. Nakajackpot na approved agad ang bahay.

    Problema ko pambili gamit. :((((

    Ganyan talaga sa simula. pa unti unti makukompleto mo din gamit sa bahay lalo na pag nag wowork ka na.

    Na alala ko nung BM ko, ako lang muna at naiwan family sa pinas, nung nakakuha ako ng bahay damit lang ang meron ako, buti carpeted yung rooms at sa sahig lang ako natutulog, unan ko mga damit for a week until na discover ko yung inflatable bed. hahaha

    tapos di ako marunong mag luto kaya araw araw johny west tuna at itlog ang ulam. hahaha

    Share ko lang din based on experience.

    Usually if wala work nirerejet or deny agad ng mga Landlords pero pde mo ipakita sa kanila na may sapat na funds ka. Let's say you have enough funds to sustain 6months(or maybe less) lease sa bank account mo for them to consider.

    Or meron naman tayong mga kapwa filo na nag papa rent ng room.
