    Saan kayo manggaling and ilan kayo? Saka kung gaano kadami baggages nyo.
    Fares are higher talaga ng ganyang months eh, pero may mga direct flights naman na mura na din.

    For me Scoot is better than Cebpac in terms of timeliness and pag manage during turbulence. Budget airline pero okay na kung makakuha kayo ng < 20k pesos each (one way) mura na yun.

    Personally, I make sure na yung 9-seater Boeing masasakyan ko, for peace of mind. Ayaw ko ng Airbus Neo kapag more than 6hrs ang flight duration. πŸ˜…
    Wala akong naging payapang flights sa cebupac kaya hindi na ko umulit kahit sale pa.

    Ang natry ko pa lang kasi to AU:
    1.) MNL > SG > SYD (1 layover)
    2.) SG > SYD (direct)

    I would recommend Qantas, pero since scoot and cebpac lang choices mo, ayun lang. SKL.

    Depende sa sipag ng cfo agent. Sakin I think kinabukasan pinasabay na ako ng agent sa seminar. Sa anak ko na isa na walang need na seminar nag email pa ako sa main email nila para makuha ung certificate niya kasi di gumagalaw ang agent in charge. 5 days ko pinalipas bago ako nag email.

    @golddragon same day na lang sila now. Natapos na po yung seminar kahapon. Pero yung sa payment wala na ko nakitang option na delivery. Kaya 82 nalang binayaran ko. Nagtataka lang ako kung di ko ba nakita yung option for delivery or sadyang tinanggal na nila. πŸ˜…

    Hi everyone ! Question lang po, kahit PR grant (visa 190) na po ba madami pang questions padin sa immigration? Or may possibility pa din ma offload? Meron na po kaming PDOS din. Pero just to make sure na we’re doing everything we can para smooth sailing lahat.

    Your advise po will greatly help.

    Recently, muntik ma-offload one of our family member (with PR visa). The reason was, his passport number in visa does not match the passport he was currently holding when he was at BI counter. In short, he applied for a new passport (after getting PR) without updating with home affairs. Buti na lang maaga sila sa airport at nung time na nasita siya ng BI office hours pa ng au at natawagan home affairs to update his visa.

    So, basically to answer your question, BI will offload you if you give them reason to do so ;)

    Yup, there's Uber, DiDi and Ola. Just make sure you enter your address sa destination and you have internet connection. There should be taxis lining up din. Note that car shares like Uber wont let kids inside without a car seat or booster, depende sa age and height. But taxis are exempt from this rule (dont ask me why and how).

    The best option I think is join an FB group for Pinoys in Melbourne, Sydney or whichever state you are heading. May mga for hire dun that you can ask how much, including arrangements such as car seats, etc a few days before your arrival date. Just post something and check their profile to be sure they're legit.

    Regarding sa CFO PDOS, tapos na po ako sa seminar and nagbigay na rin ng link for registration.

    Hello!

    I'm currently outside Ph and I was able to secure my PDOS certificate last September. I registered last Sept 21 and was given a slot for Sept 25 9:30AM to 11:00AM. After the seminar, they'll send you an email to complete the registration then sa dulo nun yung payment. Hassle lang kasi I wasn't able to choose Gcash that's why I opted for Bayad Centers na lang and pinasuyo ko na lang sa kapatid ko. After payment, you'll receive the Digital Certificate right away. If not, just inform the officer assigned to you.

    Hope this helps.

    1 month before my BM ko inayus yung PDOS. I believe wala namang expiry ang PDOS Cert.
    Yes, uwi muna Pinas that's why need ko mag PDOS.

    Hello! For those na nakapag-BM na, did you buy your sim sa airport? Was it already activated paginsert sa phone or you have to register it first? I've read somewhere kasi it will not be activated immediately.

    Ok din ba bumili ng sim sa airport or much better sa stores ng provider mismo?

    Regarding naman sa documents, aside from yun grant letter, what other documents did you bring - birth certificate etc?

    TIA!

    I think same lang naman whether you buy the sim at the airport or at the stores. Usually prepaid yung sa airport and you can activate it by providing the required info (usually passport lang pwede na).

    Hi. Quick question lang. Need ba ideclare dun sa customs declaration form or yung incoming passenger card yung mga over the counter meds like vitamins/bioflu/antihistamines? Or no need na? May dala kase akong 5 bottles of vitamins then 3 banig ng bioflu and isang banig ng antihistamine. Thanks! πŸ™‚

    Hello! For those na nakapag-BM na, did you buy your sim sa airport? Was it already activated paginsert sa phone or you have to register it first? I've read somewhere kasi it will not be activated immediately.

    Ok din ba bumili ng sim sa airport or much better sa stores ng provider mismo?

    Regarding naman sa documents, aside from yun grant letter, what other documents did you bring - birth certificate etc?

    TIA!

    Sa airport, usually may counters dun for example Telstra common. And then may magaassist sayo to activate it. But yeah AFAIK generally you need to register your sim first before sya maactivate.
