    Regarding pdos ----

    Dear Mr. De Vera:

    We wish to inform you that the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) only
    registers and conducts pre-departure orientation seminar (PDOS) to
    Filipino emigrants with permanent resident visa. Australian Visa Subclass
    489 is a provisional visa and is not classified as a permanent resident
    visa. You may, however, register with the CFO on your next departure to
    Australia if you have adjusted your status to permanent residency in
    Australia.

    You may wish to call the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration
    (POEA) at (632) 722-1155 or (632) 722-1144 to check if your Australian
    visa is considered under the working visa class.

    Best regards.

    (sgd.)
    Allan Ducusin
    Emigrant Services Officer II
    Migrant Integration and Education Division (MIED)

    Hi! just got here in Adelaide nung weekend.

    Share ko lang experience ko.

    === NAIA T3 - Flight to Sydney ===
    1. Check-in
    Mga 11PM ang flight ko pero as early as 5 hours, pwede na mag check-in. During check-in, they'll check your documents and they may ask what's your reason going to Australia or what's your visa.
    Yung baggage, ni-open talaga. They will swab the insides of your luggage then they have this machine. Di ko alam para san yun.

    2. Immigration
    Antagal at ang haba ng pila dito. You need to allocate at least 1.5 hours for this.

    3. CebuPac Gate
    CebuPac staff will inspect your carry-on baggages. Check lang nila ang laman pero hindi ang weight. After that, you need to go to another staff to do a body check before getting back your baggages.

    4. During the flight
    May bibigay silang Incoming Passenger Card. Dito na yung i-declare mo kung may dala kang medicines, foods, liquids, etc

    === Sydney Kingsford T1 - Flight to Adelaide ===
    1. Sydney Arrival
    Upon arrival, pipila kayo to check your passport. Di ko din alam san pipila. Basta sumunod lang ako sa mga kasama kong pinoy sa airplane. haha. After that you'll be sorted based on your answers on Incoming Passenger Card. So far, sa nakita ko isa lang ang binuksan talaga ang baggage then nakita ko andami niyang dalang chichirya. Kami pinalinya lang (by threes?) then inamoy ng inspection dog ang baggages. May dala akong pancit canton so ni-check ko yung meat or poultry sa card so tinanong ako ng security staff. Medyo nataranta ako so sinagot ko "a dry noodle food with some seasoning". haha. di ko alam kung na-gets niya yun. di ko kasi alam anong english ng pancit canton pero sabi lang niya "Alright, you may go"

    2. Transfer from T1 to T2
    Merong airport bus or TBus between T1 and T2. Paglabas mo sa arrival area, sa left side merong mcdo. Yung sliding door sa gilid nun, nandun ang TBus. Libre yun. Sakay ka lang or kung magtanong ka sabihin mo "domestic?" kasi may isang stop pa siya for International arrivals.

    3. T2
    Pagbaba mo ng bus, pasok ka lang sa loob T2 airport. Maliit lang ang airport. Nasa baba ang arrivals then sa taas ang departures.

    4. Check-in
    Self check-in ang style nila kagaya sa CebuPac sa NAIA but the difference is nasa self check-in machine na din ang printing ng baggage tags. May instruction naman sa baggage tag pano ilagay. Pag di kayo sure, ipalagay niyo na lang pagbigay niyo ng check-in baggage niyo. Also take note na isa lang pila for the baggage drop off for al flights. Pag drop-off niyo ng baggage, boarding pass lang kailangan nila unlike sa Pinas na kailangan pa ng ID.

    5. Adelaide Arrival
    Pagdating ko sa Adelaide, halos walang tao ang airport. Parang kami lang ang dumating that time. Medyo mahaba habang lakad lang papunta sa baggage carousel.

    6. Transportation
    Di ko alam pano ang transpo from the airport kasi sinundo ako ng landlady ko but there are directions around the airport where to ride a bus, train or taxi.

    === Other Notes ===
    1. Yung date and time ng itinerary ng CebuPac sa Sydney is already in Sydney time. I was expecting na PH time pa yun so I was adding 3 hours. Ganun din sa Jetstar, naka local time
    2. Food is around 9-15 AUD then bottled water is 3-6 AUD pero merong water fountains within the airport.
    3. Mainit ang araw pero malamig ang hangin. A simple jacket will do. Wag yung pang snow jacket unless sobrang lamigin kayo. Sakin, nilalamig ng todo ang ilong ko so naka mask or neck gaiter ako minsan.
    4. For accommodations, join "Pinoy AU Adelaide" group. Daming nag offer dun.
    5. Hindi naghanap ng any vaccine in any of the airports (NAIA, Sydney or Adelaide). Wala ding thermal check or any kind of inspection about corona virus.

    =====================

    Yun lang muna! Share ko experience ko later about Adelaide life.

    I'm still looking for a job. Pasa pasa online. Pahingi naman ng cover letter at resume niyo para may comparison ako. Tsaka pa-refer na din ako. haha.

    Good luck to us!

    Sa mga naka 489 paano po kayo nagopen ng bank account offshore? Kasi I checked NAB for PR lang daw yun pwede.

    I'm on visa 489. pwede offshore mag open. just follow the instructions on their website.

    pagdating ko dito, nag email ako sa kanila to schedule the appearance meeting. They ask me to provide my boarding pass, passport and visa grant letter.

    Di ko na-try mag transfer ng funds from PH. hand carry ko lang ang cash kasi di naman aabot ng 10k AUD. Para iwas fees na din.

    How much kaya costs for a private hospital for a pregnancy checkup? Xray and lab tests? Normal and cs delivery?

    Aware na ndi pa tayo entitled ng medicare. Anticipated na ang gastos. Wife kasi is mag34 na,kaya gusto na din namin magfmily.

    May 2020 kmi magmove from mideast.

    - I needed to get a superior score from PTE
    *Aug. 2018 - 3rd attempt of PTE (Dubai). LRSW = 57/69/84/56 (scores were awful)
    (Despite my scores, I am determined and wont stop til i get that superior)

    Good day,

    Mag Big Move ako this june 2020

    I'm checking flight na...

    Pinag iisipan ko if

    Singapore airlines
    Manila-singapore-adelaide

    Or

    Cebu pac
    Manila-sydney-adelaide

    Due to COVID19, i think mas better sa australia na agad ang flight ko... wala nang lay over sa other countries

    ??

    Salamat
