How did you bring in your money to OZ?

Gandang umaga po

Based on PDOS, the maximum money you can take out is USD 10,000 or AUD 10,000 or PHP 10,000 only. Amount higher than that you need a certification from BSP. Kung more that this amount ang baon ng family nyo at hindi na kayo kumuha ng certification from BSP, ano po ang ginawa nyo? Pls advise on the most convenient and practical way.

salamat po,
Arpi

    @mikai, merong document to declare yung amount of money na dala mo kung more than 10K tapos kailangan mo din ng proof/evidence on how you get that amount of money. example: Payslips or certification that you're earning that much. Land titles, or proof ng pinagbentahan ng lupa or ari-arian. if you madami ka din dalang alahas at mukhang more than 10k din ang value kailangan mo din ideclare yun with proof na sayo talaga yun.

    i forgot nga lang kung ano tawag sa document na yun. hehe.

    in my case, i bought some AUD sa BDO.. need mo lang magpareserve..

    kase pagdating mo dito sa australia may fee kapag papapalitan mo yung money mo sa forex. tapos kapag sa airport naman mababa rates..

    pwede rin na ideposit mo na lang money mo sa normal mong ATM (phil account) then withdraw money as you wish. pero syempre may bank charges din..

    most effective way is to buy AUD na lang sa bank.. best way to buy ngayon kase 43, sometimes 42 na lang ang 1 AUD to PHP..

    when i went here in australia last year 1 AUD = 46 pa..

    hehe.. di ko nga masyado nagamit yung money talaga kase nagkawork na ako 2 weeks after arriving here. well, eventually naubos din pala kase kung ano ano ang pinagbibili ko..

    saka nagtravel ako sa eastern states (syd, melb, canberra) a few days before i started work (perth based ako). balak ko kase funds ko yung dala ko in case i dont find a job.. mas madali kase in AUD yung money mo.. nagpapalit din ako ng USD mga 600 lang.. up until now di ko pa rin nagagamit. so, yung money ko sa pinoy ATM ko, di ko nagamit bukod sa pambayad for the bills na naiwan ko sa pinas.

    pano ba magpadala ng pera from phil to AU ? thru bank lang ba ? at kun sakali eh pwede ba yun AUD ipapadala mismo ? naisip ko kasi para la ka masyado dala na cash pagbiyahe punta au.

    isa pa po tanong eh may kaso po ba kun bumili ng AUD sa mga reputable money changer like sanry's and czarina ? medyo mas mababa kasi rate nila eh

    thanks

    @tigermj sa BDO ako bumili ng dollar mas mura yata dun nung nagtry ako magcompare compare but sa SM Moa lang ako nakakita ng branch na may available AUD. You need to open an account with them bago ka makakapag request ng AUD.

    After mo magopen ng account deposit mo na lang and just call the branch that you want to reserve this certain amount of AUD.

    BPI and Western Union are your options in sending money from Phil to AU.

    The problem with this is that you are incurring 2 commission charges - (1) when you buy USD and (2) when you convert your USD into AUD.

    It will turn out na mas mahal...

    You will be better off AUD to USD diretso - this is a very active currency pair hence you should be able to get a very good rate for this.

    USD to PHP to AUD involve double charges and will be costly...
