    Hi po mga ka-SG, need po sana namin ng advice niyo. We will be starting our #AUDream this coming Jan 2023, nag-ggather napo kami documents for our VetAssess. Kaya lang medyo may plot twist lang sa current work ko dito sa SG. I'm currently pregnant with our firstborn ^^ and ung 3months maternity leave ko sana sa pinas is ki-nounter offer ng boss ko ng permanent WFH nalang. Ang catch lang is icacancel na nila ung pass ko.
    They will not also issue me any internal contract kaya ang worry ko po is ano kayang documents pwede mag-support ng employment ko from January 2023 onwards? I'm thinking of my Payslips and Bank transfer ng salary po sana pero hindi ata sila classified as primary document?
    I'm CE/QS btw, ung sample related proof of work ko kaya h-honor ng Vetassess?
    Salamat po in advance sa tutugon! Happy New Year sa lahat! :))))

    Hi, for any company po na pa assess nyo, better po to have proper documentation, sa last company nyo po sa SG better to have the following;

    1.) Reference Letter
    2.) Payslip (specially the last 3 months altleast but more is better
    3.) Acceptance Letter ng Resignation showing your last day
    4.) Bank statement (if ever hindi available payslip)
    5.) Other docs na makikita yung transactions po na related sa company

    If regards po sa 3 months WFH without pass, better not to include po bka po pag na invite na is hindi majustify on papers. Important you have enough years even how many companies po para mag pa assess.

    Yan lang po muna ma comment po, hope it helps :-)

    Hi @DreamerG! Salamat! :)
    Actually ung WFH ko ay hindi lang 3months, indefinite po siya kaya nanghihinayang ako na hindi ko siya maclaim later on. Hindi din ako nagfile ng resignation and hindi naman din ako hiningan ng company. Meaning ba wala ng chance maclaim ko WFH work experience ko? :(

    Assessment body will definitely looking for accurate and legit paper of from when to when ka under sa company. Better check with your employer on how to have end date with them with formal letter, ito rin po kasi gagamitin nyo for Reference Letter which is more valid for assessment.

    Mas generous daw magbigay ng score sa RELC base sa mga nagtest sa parehong center. Mas mataas nkuha nila sa RELC.

    Ako kc sa cuppage dahil wla n slot sa RELC nung magtatake n kmi ng Exam.

    In terms of facility, mas ok sa Cuppage dahil mas bago yung building and may waiting room sila for registration. Pero mas maliit yung testing room nila kaya mejo mas maingay sa speaking part nung exam. Mas accessible lang siya dahil nasa bandang Orchard Road.

    Sa RELC naman, mas luma yung building and ang waiting area for registration is sa corridor lang. Pero mas malaki yung testing room nila kaya mejo mas mahina yung ingay sa speaking part. Mejo mas malayo nga lang siya compared to Cuppage.

    Pero kung paipiliin ako, mas ok sa RELC kasi mas malaki yung exam room at mas makakapagfocus ka sa speaking part dahil less noise.

    MY ROAD TO AUSTRALIAN PR

    Nominated Occupation: Architectural Draftsperson - ANZSCO 312111 (Offshore)

    Apr 30: VETASSESS – I double-checked my documents for the last time.
    May 01: VETASSESS – I successfully submitted my online assessment for Architectural Draftsperson. Total amount paid is AUD$ 880 (SGD$ 842.66) Crossing my fingers that the outcome will be positive.

    Hello good morning po :)
    Anyone here took the NAATI exam for additional 5 points?
    How much is the fee and where is the test center here in SG?
    Thank you po!!

    I'm also thinking of taking this. The exam centre is based in AU if I'm not mistaken. However, the exams are now purely online so you can book and take the exam at the comfort of your own home.

    Here's the link to their website for your reference:

    In terms of facility, mas ok sa Cuppage dahil mas bago yung building and may waiting room sila for registration. Pero mas maliit yung testing room nila kaya mejo mas maingay sa speaking part nung exam. Mas accessible lang siya dahil nasa bandang Orchard Road.

    Sa RELC naman, mas luma yung building and ang waiting area for registration is sa corridor lang. Pero mas malaki yung testing room nila kaya mejo mas mahina yung ingay sa speaking part. Mejo mas malayo nga lang siya compared to Cuppage.

    Pero kung paipiliin ako, mas ok sa RELC kasi mas malaki yung exam room at mas makakapagfocus ka sa speaking part dahil less noise.

    Thank you sa inputs sir. Sa RELC na din kme magpabook. 😊

    It's really hard to tell po talaga to know which date and time yung konti kasabay... mostly, puno talaga ng slots since marami ring ibang lahi and students na nagtatake ng exam.. so better talaga magpractice with noisy background para masanay.... and agree na morning ang better slot po, para fresh pa ang mind.. kapag hapon kasi medyo nakakaantok na specially ang lamig pa sa testing centers.. hehe goodluck po!

    Ako kc sa cuppage dahil wla n slot sa RELC nung magtatake n kmi ng Exam.

    I somehow agree na mas generous sa points si RELC.. I tried to take the exam sa Cuppage and sa RELC.
    When I took the exam sa cuppage, I'm somehow confident on what I did.. pero the results were not in my favor. Whereas kay RELC, I thought I will fail some areas, but surprisingly I got perfect scores sa exam... Just a hunch, but maybe mas madali rin yung questions kay RELC, maybe different type of PTE exam versions not sure? but better talaga mag prepare ng 1-2months before taking the exam... it's really more on sanayan talaga and sometimes nasa questions/environment rin on the day of your exam. Kahit super kabisado mo pano sumagot and you feel confident na, iba pa rin kapag bigla kang nadistract and naconfuse on the day.. Goodluck po!! :)

    Kahit san po kayu pwwde mag exit. We choose coming from Sg kasi para di na doble ung tickets na bibilhin namin. Then dun gagastos pa syempre. Tapos u need to attend PDOS ata. So dito na kami galing Sg para straightforward lang.

    Hello po! Kapag ba sa SG nag-lodge ng visa at may grant na, required ba na sa SG rin mag-exit pag flight na to AU? Or pwedeng umuwi muna ng Pinas after ma-cancel ang pass then sa Pinas na ang exit?

    Kahit san po kayu pwwde mag exit. We choose coming from Sg kasi para di na doble ung tickets na bibilhin namin. Then dun gagastos pa syempre. Tapos u need to attend PDOS ata. So dito na kami galing Sg para straightforward lang.

    Required po ba yung PDOS sa lahat ng visa type?

    Hello po. Ask ko lang po gaano katagal ung medical sa SATA? At ano po included sa medical examination? Eto po ba ung normal eye check, blood pressure check lang? And how much po?
    Magpapasched sana ako today pero closed na yung clinic.
    Thank you

    bro sa paragon ako , ok ang experience ko, natapos ko lahat within 1 hour tapos the next working day reflected na sa immi account ko na ok na medical no action required.

    Hello,

    Question lang po. kapag na submit na ng Point Medical (Paragon) yung results, automatic mawawala na yung Health Examination dun sa Actions required like sa Biometrics? I visited the clinic last Saturday and as of this writing wala pa din update sa ImmiAccount ko. Thank you po.

    Hi Guys, ask ko lang po if may nakaexperience na na pina-snail mail ang SG certificate of clearance from SG to Canada? Or kahit not necessary to Canada po. Ilang days or weeks po inabot? Maraming salamat po.

    Hello po, anyone here mga ka SG na nag driving lesson here at nakuha ng license, any advise po saan ok? Ilang months po bago makakuha ng license (hindi provisional).

    After po ba nang lessons pwede sya magamit sa AU? Need to register lang? Salamat po :-)

    Hi @DreamerG. Nag take ako ng driving lessons, theory tests and practical driving test sa SG. At nakapasa naman at nakareceive ng SG Driving License. BBDC ako nag take.

    Based sa nabasa ko, kasali ang SG sa Recognised countries and jurisdictions in Aus. Meaning, exempted na sa driving test, mas madali na magconvert or kumuha ng state/territory DL.

    Although my DL din ako sa pinas. Nonrecognized ang Ph kaya required and theory and practical test sa Aus.

    Hindi ko pa na experience ung actual process sa Aus, kaya wait ko din reply ng mga kabayan natin na nasa Aus na.

    @michael713 hello, ask ko lang po kung magkano gastos mo sa practuc test sa SG? kung pwede po malaman

    Wala naman hiningi saken na ibang document, binasa niya lang sa harap ko at tinanong kung tama ba ang mga nakasulat sa declaration. You can also ask them ahead of time kung may kailangan ka bang dalhin. :smile:
