    Hi everyone, regarding form 1195. wala ako kakilala ng more than a year dun sa list "List of professions and occupations". any alternatives and suggestion? Thank you.

    your GP or accountant?

    GP yes, possibly. kaso bihira kame mag stay sa isang GP kasi palipat lipat kame ng lugar. I don't use accountant naman. ehehe, try namin sa GP. baka lang may alternative.

    GP din ginamit namin. wala kang kilalang nurse? Sa post office, wala ka kilala? Or sa pharmacy?

    Usually, marami ditong pinoy na nurse or engineer. Yung iba na alam ko kahit wala pang 1 year sila nagkakilala ay tinulongan na mag pimra ng form 1195..pero depende sa risk capacity mo at confidence sa taong pipirma ng form 1195 mo.

    Grabe ang bilis ng 2 months application to exam. Marami naman ako kakilala na kasabay din mag apply last 2020, ngayong 2022 lang nakapag exam. Waiting nalang ng ceremony. Yung kakilala ko ay 1-1/2 months from test to ceremony.

    Yung kilala ko na two months lang nag exam na sa qld, until now, wala pa din ceremony. Sept last year pa nag exam yun. anyway, antay na lang. nakakatakot pa din naman bumiyahe. dilemma lang talaga is, baka better mag apply na ng rrv para medyo masulit din yung visa na yun.

    Oo, puede ang teacher. Pero kung wala, meron ka naman cgurong kakilala na accountant na nag manage ng ITR mo? Pasok kasi ang Accountant, aside sa Teacher, Nurse or Engineer. Saang council ka ba sa VIC? Baka may maka tulong sa iyo kung wala pa rin. Pero kung wala talaga, I think its not a bad option na maghanap ng pinoy na pasok sa mga list of professions na yan ngayon pa lang para pag apply pasok na sa oras.

    Wala kang ibang GP? Pharmacist? Tao sa post office?

    Wala na eh, normally kase Nurse on call service lage gamit namin, lalo na nung pandemic, tapos kung need man namin mag GP, nag ccheck lang kame ng malapit at kung sino available.

    Puwede nurse ha. Yung nurse on call, wala ka contact? Kahit ibang GP, wala ka na kilala? Kami, nag book lang kami appointment sa isang GP na tumingin na sa amin dati. Pumayag naman siya pumirma, chineck lang niya kailan kami unang nagkita.

    Hotline yung nurse on call, iba iba nasagot pag tumawag, https://www.health.vic.gov.au/primary-care/nurse-on-call

    mag ttry na lang din kame sa ibang GP na ma book namin pag need.

    Hi mga Pips!

    I just passed my citizenship exam yesterday...I have a dilemma, my PR visa has expired and I'm planning to travel to the PHL this June 2022 (in 3months). I am not sure if I should start processing my Resident Return Visa or wait for my Citizenship Ceremony and then apply for a AUS Passport (urgent application is within 2-3 days).

    Just want to check with those that have taken their citizenship pledge recently if how long was their turnaround time from passing the citizenship exam to pledge (ceremony)?

    If I can get the citizenship pledge before June 2022, I find it a very costly exercise if renew my PR visa (RRV) too soon which is around $410, and then having to apply for an AUS passport soon which is around $308.

    Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Date of ceremony: Pending

    Medyo magka-iba ang mga results ng time line. Yung Pinoy friend ko (same council din) ay nauna lang sa akin ng 2 weeks na ma-approve ang citizenship (on the same day ng exam), pero within 1 month may oathtaking ceremony na siya. Ako more than a month na since na approve ang citizenship, pero wala pa rin dates for ceremony.

    Gusto ko ngang malaman kung ano mga pinagkaiba at bakit mas mabilis ma process ang oathtaking. Pero napapansin ko, usually yung may mga Aus citizen na anak at house na dito ang karaniwan mabilis ang process...yun lang ang napapansin ko na common denominator ng mga mabilis ma bigyan ng oathtaking schedule :smiley:

    Try niyo mag down load ng mga Free AUs citizenship exam apps sa iOS or Android. Meron din online, google lang. Practice lang ng practice, minsan mas mahirap ang practice tests kesa actual. Yung actual din, may mga confusing questions, kaya kailangan basahin ng maigi.hehe

    I don't remember any police clearance requirement.
    Eto lang mga docs na pinasa ko nung Citizenship application:

    1. Passport (ID proof)
    2. Recent Utility Bill (Proof of Address)
    3. Birth Certificate (Age proof)
    4. Signed/ Endorsed passport photos (signed for Identity declaration)
    5. Passport Stamp (Evidence of Initial Entry in Aus & Date)
    6. Passport (Evidence of PHL citizenship)
    7. Form 1195 (Identity Declaration Form - Endorsed by someone that personally knows you for at least a year who is an AUS citizen and also a worker under the list of professions and occupations identified in the Form 1195). Important din ma trace mo ang mga previous addresses mo with dates in Aus and overseas pati na mga overseas travel mo, mga past 5-10 years ata yun, then pati work history mo in Aus and overseas.

    Hi everyone, regarding form 1195. wala ako kakilala ng more than a year dun sa list "List of professions and occupations". any alternatives and suggestion? Thank you.

    your GP or accountant?

    GP yes, possibly. kaso bihira kame mag stay sa isang GP kasi palipat lipat kame ng lugar. I don't use accountant naman. ehehe, try namin sa GP. baka lang may alternative.

    GP din ginamit namin. wala kang kilalang nurse? Sa post office, wala ka kilala? Or sa pharmacy?

    Usually, marami ditong pinoy na nurse or engineer. Yung iba na alam ko kahit wala pang 1 year sila nagkakilala ay tinulongan na mag pimra ng form 1195..pero depende sa risk capacity mo at confidence sa taong pipirma ng form 1195 mo.

    @Heprex yung friend namin deacon/priest ata pumirma. Kami nmn financial officer sa NAB yung pumirma sa application namin.

    salamat ng marami! @vitofilip :smile: possible kasi kame hingian.. Nag initial entry muna kame Oct2017 then nag permanently move April 2018.. almost 5mos pa kame sa SG after initial entry then around 1.5 sa Pinas. Hoping na hindi na.. natapos ko na lahat ng thread about citizenship :lol: and may 2 poster lang na hiningian ng SG COC kahit less than 3mos stay ..

    Anyway, hinihintay ko pa rin naman new passport ko.. at nasa old passport yung mga stamps ng travel (nalimutan kong isusurrender pala yung old)..

    btw, for first arrival evidence, since wala ng stamps sa passport ngayon, meron bang iba na nagsubmit ng ibang doc for this one (aside po sa stamp sa passport and movement records ng DHA)?

    a year from now, you will wish you had started today

    Onga pala. May I know pala anong sagot dito? na-post to around page 23 and may sumagot na if single, ang family unit is yung immediate family, pero pag married, ang family unit is yung wife and kid (if meron)

    So pag single, ang ililista is parents and siblings na hindi kasama sa application, and pag married, yung wife and kid lang (provided hindi sila kasama sa application - which is not the case..)
    Tama ba pagkakaintindi ko? Pasensya po, gusto ko lang maging clear.

    Also, sa birth certificate, anung ginamit nyong document reference number? BReN or yung Local Civil Registry No.?

    Salamat ng marami :blush:
