    Hi, magtanong lang po sa mga na hire offshore. Nag ask pa po ba ang mga employer nyo for reference during the hiring process? Hehe..

    Sharing my experience po.

    Yes, they asked po ng dalawa. Both is yung dapat nag manage sayo with atleast a year.

    Hi po, tama po ba understanding ko, so pwede ang mga previous supervisors kung naging under ka nila at least a year but not necessarily yung most current supervisor?

    medyo mahirap ata kung current boss kasi paano kung hindi ka e hire so mag iisip na yung current boss na aalis ka tlga :( baka pwede naman ata colleagues? hindi ko na din kc mahagilap mga previous boss ko haha..

    Ay iba po yung sken. Yung case ko na hire nako and may employment contract na. Kasi parang 3rd party yung nag send ng email sa mga naging boss ko. Tanda ko pinakita pa nung dating boss ko sken kung tama ba yung site na fifillupan nya baka daw mamali sya haha

    hello po sa mga nka 491 visa na nag BM sa Australia ano po hinahanap ng immigration officer sa Airport bukod sa grant visa letter. need po ba ng OEC, PDOS and CFO? thank you sa mga sasagot.

    Just to share my experience.

    Hinanapan kame ng OEC at PDOS/CFO. Actually may list yung immigration officer na napilahan namin. Pinakita nya yung list.

    May na provide akong OEC pero si Misis wala kasi wala naman syang work dito sa AU. So nung sinabi kona walang OEC si misis at walang work sa AU ndi na nag ask ng further question is Officer.

    About sa PDOS, meron akong email from CFO na hindi need ng 491 ng PDOS. Nag register kasi ako para online PDOS, pero after verification ng visa ko by CFO. Nag email sila na hindi daw need ng 491 ng PDOS. So pinakita ko lang yung email na yun.

    Additional na hinanap saken is yung employment contract ko.

    Pwede po kaya mag email directly sa CFO for a exemption confirmation? Para hindi na magbook ang hihintayin na iverify ang visa?

    hello, question po regarding sa primary schools. for example yung anak ko natapos niya yung grade 1 sa pinas by May 2024, i-rerecognize po ba yun sa Australia at magiging Primary 2 na siya by January 2025? Or kelangan niya parin pumasok sa Primary 1 in the middle of the school year sa AU? Iniisip kasi namin kung patapusin muna namin yung school year ng anak namin sa Pinas then saka lang kami mag-BM sa June 2024 eh. salamat po sa mga makakasagot.

    MY ROAD TO AUSTRALIAN PR

    Nominated Occupation: Architectural Draftsperson - ANZSCO 312111 (Offshore)


    2020

    Jan 20: Since I’m DIYing it, I started researching and learning the whole process.
    Feb 22: VETASSESS – I started gathering all required documents.
    Apr 25: VETASSESS – I finished gathering all my documents. I created my account and started filling up the Skills Assessment for General Occupation Application.
    Apr 29: VETASSESS – I double-checked my documents. I started uploading the required documents. I decided not to include my first work in the Philippines because I don’t have payment evidence of it. I didn’t include my 1st work in Singapore as well because I don’t have a Certificate of Employment from that job.
    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.
    May 05: VETASSESS – My application status was lodged.
    Jul 12: VETASSESS – After 11 weeks, the results came out and it was Positive. Number of years assessed positively was 9.63 which is equivalent to 15 points in EOI.
    Jul 25: IELTS – I finally booked my IELTS Computer-delivered Test for SGD$ 365. My test date was Aug 16, 2020.
    Aug 16: IELTS – It was my test day. Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing were all taken on this day.
    Aug 21: IELTS – My test results came out. L: 9.0 R: 7.5 W: 7.0 S: 7.5 which is Proficient English. It is equivalent to 10 points in EOI.
    Aug 22: EOI – I finally submitted my Expression of Interest (EOI) in SkillSelect for NSW Visa 190.

    My points breakdown:
    Age: 25
    English Language Ability: 10
    Education: 15
    State Nomination: 5
    Years of Experience: 15
    Total: 70 points

    *Invitation rounds for NSW nomination under the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) are currently closed. I’m expecting that this may take a while because of the pandemic and the current situation in Australia. I just have to wait for the federal government’s advice on when it will open again.


    2022

    Jul 5: IELTS – Since my IELTS exam result was expiring on Aug 16, 2022, I booked my 2nd IELTS Computer-delivered Test for SGD$ 378. My test date was on Jul 17, 2022. I didn’t know at that time that Australia is accepting its validity for 3 years. But I was able to use it as well for my Canada PR application.
    Jul 17: IELTS – It was my test day. Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing were all taken on this day.
    Jul 20: IELTS – My test results came out. L: 8.0 R: 9.0 W: 7.0 S: 7.5 which is Proficient English. It is equivalent to 10 points in EOI.
    Jul 25: EOI – I received a notice that my EOI is expiring on August 23, 2022, so I had to resubmit it.
    Aug 23: EOI – My Expression of Interest (EOI) in SkillSelect expired after 2 years.
    Aug 25: EOI – I submitted my new Expression of Interest (EOI) in SkillSelect.

    My points breakdown:
    Age: 25
    English Language Ability: 10
    Education: 15
    State Nomination: 5
    Years of Experience: 15
    Total: 70 points

    *Invitation rounds for NSW nominations under the Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) were still closed. It’s expected to open in November 2022. I hope I get invited before my birthday because I will lose points during an age milestone on December.

    Sep 09: EOI – After a long wait, NSW’s Skilled Visa Nomination Program finally opened. However, my skill points for my nominated occupation didn’t meet the minimum points required which is 90. I only had 70 points. I updated my EOI and changed my preferred state to Victoria, which only requires a minimum of 65 points. I then created an account in the Live In Melbourne portal and submitted my Registration of Interest (ROI).

    Dec XX: EOI – My points went down to 60 points due to an age milestone and I am now not qualified for at EOI in the Australian Skillselect. My only hope is to get higher points in my English exam to get back in the pool. I withdrew my EOI and ROI in Victoria.
    Dec19: – I booked my PTE English Test for USD$ 260 (SGD$ 367.11). My exam date was on Dec 30, 2022.
    Dec 30: PTE – I took the PTE Academic English Test. My test results came out the same day: L: 84 R:84 S: 90 W: 75. I didn’t get the scores that I needed to achieve Superior English.
    Dec 31: PTE – I booked another PTE English Test for USD$ 260 (SGD$ 361.28). My exam date was on Jan 09, 2023.


    2023

    Jan 09: PTE – It was my test day. The results came out on the same day: L: 90 R:85 S: 90 W: 80. I finally got the points that I needed to get Superior level of English.
    Jan 10: EOI – I lodged my EOI for NSW Visa 190 and was able to reach 70 points again to qualify for an invitation. By this time, the minimum points for all occupations were already removed by NSW.
    Jan 12: PTE – Booked my wife’s PTE English Test for USD$ 291.60 (SGD$ 401.85). Her exam date was on Jan 20, 2023.
    Jan 20: PTE – It was my wife’s test day. The results came out on the same day. She got a Competent English result which is additional 5 points on my EOI for Partner’s Qualifications (English).
    Jan 21: EOI – I updated my NSW 190 EOI. I now have 75 points.

    My points breakdown:
    Age: 15
    English Language Ability: 20
    Education: 15

    Partner Qualification (English): 5
    Total: 75 points

    Your sister-in-law can come over on a tourist visa to spend time with your family, provided she meets the requirements for the visa.

    However, if she comes over for the sole purpose of taking care of your kids it might be viewed as modern slavery. A person on a tourist visa isn't allowed to do paid work and if immigration sees this as unpaid labor, doon papasok ang modern slavery.

    Iba ang culture nila dito, so they won't really understand why someone who is of working age and isn't closely related to you will agree to do childminding for free. I remember seeing at least 2 news items about Filipinos & Indians in the past 2 years who were charged with modern slavery, so ingat ka lang on how you explain why she's coming over.

    It will likely be easier to ask your parents to come over instead of your sister-in-law since it's common for grandparents to want to spend time with their grandchildren who live here.

    Thank you for your insights @maguero, appreciated. Sa mga family po na merong kids esp toddlers, anu po yung usual na ginagawa ng parents if may work po sila? Sa daycare po ba the whole day?
    Sa case ko po kasi hindi na kayang mag long travel ang both parents namin ng husband ko dahil sa age nila.

    Young children usually go to long daycare. If you're on a PR visa this is subsidised based on the household income.

    Hello,

    Yung sa medicare enrollment, via email lang po ba yun? Nagsubmit kase kami ng enrollment form using [email protected] last June 6 pero until now wala pa rin update.

    Ano tips po kung pano makakuha agad ng medicare?

    Thank you.

    Hello! On the same boat! I submitted it 2 weeks ahead of you though (May 22). Tumawag ako kahapon (29/07) sa medicare to follow up. Sabi nila nasa May 17-18 na yung pina-process nila. May backlogs nga daw sila. They gave me at least a month daw to expect yung arrival ng medicare card. You may use that as a reference din sguro.

    Make na you have attached the docs needed rin.

    Let's wait na lang. :)

    Hello, mga kababayan. Hihingi lang sana ako ng insights. Para sa mga nag-BM na may dependent na spouse.. I was wondering, pwede ba bumalik si Primary PR Visa holder sa Pinas (to continue to work there for about another 6 months) while si spouse (dependent) ay magstay na sa AU at doon na magwork?

    I tried to lookup any rule/policy related to this online pero wala kasi that definitively explains this so I thought maybe someone in this community might know the answer, had the same experience, or maybe point me in the right direction on where I could look?

    Maraming salamat. 😊

    Sa Seek ba ito? I did, naverify naman niya yun work rights. I am just not sure how to fully maximize :blush:

    For 491 grants who are applying offshore, pano niyo nireflect yun visa status sa CVs and cover letter? Will Visa Status: Temporary Visa (491) will do? Or is there a better way?

    Any advise or tips for job hunting specially offshore will be appreciated! :smiley:

    hello po sa mga nka 491 visa na nag BM sa Australia ano po hinahanap ng immigration officer sa Airport bukod sa grant visa letter. need po ba ng OEC, PDOS and CFO? thank you sa mga sasagot.

    Just to share my experience.

    Hinanapan kame ng OEC at PDOS/CFO. Actually may list yung immigration officer na napilahan namin. Pinakita nya yung list.

    May na provide akong OEC pero si Misis wala kasi wala naman syang work dito sa AU. So nung sinabi kona walang OEC si misis at walang work sa AU ndi na nag ask ng further question is Officer.

    About sa PDOS, meron akong email from CFO na hindi need ng 491 ng PDOS. Nag register kasi ako para online PDOS, pero after verification ng visa ko by CFO. Nag email sila na hindi daw need ng 491 ng PDOS. So pinakita ko lang yung email na yun.

    Additional na hinanap saken is yung employment contract ko.

    Pwede po kaya mag email directly sa CFO for a exemption confirmation? Para hindi na magbook ang hihintayin na iverify ang visa?

    For example dito sa info email nila
    [email protected]

    Nagemail ako sa kanila last week, nagreply naman the next day confirming na hindi covered ng CFO ang 491, therefore no PDOS required.

    Pwede po mahingi yung email addresses kung saan kayo nag send?
    sa CFO and sa DMW(former POEA) na din if meron :) para sa PDOS at OEC exemption

    Hi! This is my dillemma too, 2 weeks na po ako nagsend ng email sa CFO and POEA about pre-departure requirements ng 491 visa holders pero walang reply. Parehas tinawagan ko at sabi no need ng PDOS and OEC kase di naman PR at hindi din naman employment visa. Kaso lang knowing kung gaano naghihigpit ang Immig. officers natin gusto ko sana makakuha ng official list para hindi na ko hahanapan ng irrelevant documents.

    Most probably wala yan haha. Based lang rin sa recent applications ko (tumumal recently, wala na pumapansin sakin hahahaha), wala silang relocation package kasi nageexpect talaga sila since PR ka na, you have all the means and work rights. Pero pwede ka naman mag negotiate kung meron sila pa-hotel for a week or so, open up mo lang na since new migrant ka maghahanap ka pa lang ng bahay pagdating mo. I suggest just be transparent and be open to that.

    Mga employer sponsored lang yung usually merong relocation package.

    DIY all the way. Avoid preachy, know-it-all, and unscrupulous agents AT ALL COSTS!
