    sa experience ko and experience ng mga kasama ko dito magkakaiba...

    1. kung galing ka pinas, kelangan mo dumaan sa CFO (Manila) for PDOS na 2 hours, after lunch yung seminar so pumunta na kayo around 11am. Check CFO website for sched
    2. kung galing ka sa ibang bansa like SG or MY, hinde na kelangan (wtf di ba!?) pag umuuwi sila ng pinas/pabalik ng AU deretso na sa travel tax hinde hinanap yung CFO sticker nila
    sure na sure po ba ang no.2?

    marami na rin (like me) ang nag initial entry na sa AU na galing sa ibang bansa..
    so incase na magbakasyon sa pinas.. eh wala ng hassle..

    i think, kung sa records nila eh galing kana sa AU, eh possibleng nag pdos kana before, matagal na, at possibleng iba na ang passport mo ngaun.. so wala silang way para ma-track kung nag PDOS kana or hindi.. lol..
    @lock_code2004 sorry ngayon ko lang nabalikan itong thread na to, yep sure na. Friend ko yung case num2. Ako yung case1 kasi umuwi pa kami. Sabi naman nung friend ko na case2, kasi may stamp na sila nanggaling na sila sa AU.

    Okey, no qualm on this - my line of thinking lang is that if I were the immigration officer, I would definitely look for the CFO sticker on the passport... That in itself is the proof that they have compiled this particular requirement. :)

    I think required pa rin strictly pero pababayaan na lang din siguro ng immigration officer kasi tapos na eh. Moot and academic na nanggaling na din sa OZ unless first time and manggaling sa pinas. Im curious whether this requirement is enough for IO to prevent a PR from leaving the country. Is there a definitive law or something or just a policies/ procedures lang? just like a challenge made on impeachment court sa DOJ regarding hold departure order.

    I am not exactly sure about the coverage, benefits and main purpose of this seminar. Kapag galing kna kasi sa bansa kung saan ka PR like australia, already established yourself there, i think medyo defeated na purpose of attending this seminar unless meron silang kakaibang ituturo pa. You may need to attend again the seminar to prevent "sakit ng ulo" dealing with IO by complying the requirements and not exactly for the purpose by which this cfo was created in the first place.

    Double standard. The sole purpose of the seminar is to just let us know basically the Dos and Don'ts dba. Tama ba? For Philippine citizens, there should also be seminars held at the embassy at the country of their usual residence. Hindi yung on-line registration lang pala eh pwede na. Malabo eh.

    It's not a matter of control e, kundi yung kagustuhan na rin dapat nung mga emigrants, kung san bansa man sila papunta, na malaman mga basic know-hows and what-nots sa bansang pupuntahan nila.

    Online registration e magfill up ka lang ata ng mga blanks e yun na yun e. So kung gusto ko malaman mga dapat gawin at bawal gawin uuwi pa ako ng Pinas. Nyaaaay hahaha kaluka ba :D

    Believe me, the seminar is a waste of money and most importantly time...

    If information lang kailangan mo, you can downloan a bazillion more information from the net and read it at your own leisure. IMHO, reading and becoming an active forumer dito sa PinoyAu is also giving out information.

    Medyo malabo n din cguro nila mate trace yan kung nag cfo ka or hindi kasi medyo low tech govt natin and messy ang records nila. Unless manually tatak tlga sa passport ang basis nila.

    4 years nko sa SG and this year lang ako magkaroon ng record sa poea/owwa sa main office sa pinas kasi hindi synch and records ng embassy at main office. Kundi pa nagstart sila mag pilot testing ng online oec. Speaking of oec, i still dont get the purpose, but thats another story.

    The intention of this cfo is good (and other ofw/ migrant related projects) but laging ang problema naman sa atin is implementation part sa baba. Can be due to incompetence, corruptions, confusing regulations, power trip, etc. Madalas may butas sa controls at na bypass. I've been involved in a massive project with govt through pagc and worldbank to fight corruptions before and observed that the system and culture of corruptions is so deeply rooted. Hoping na someday maging maayos din ang lahat. Theres a lot of good people in the govt is just that tone of the top lang karaniwang problems. Godbless pinas.

    For this cfo, if kasabay ko family ko aalis sa pinas pa oz i might attend this, if not at sg kami manggaling hindi na din siguro.

    IMHO, it is indeed a waste of money. The 400 pesos registration fee is too much for the sticker and the seminar itself. So kung family, mas malaking gastos as you will have to shell out 400 pesos per person. Pero tingin ko, di naman masasayang oras pag um-attend ng CFO seminar dahil may matutunan naman kahit paano.

    Questions:

    1. What if i will be coming from another country, should i need to go back to PH and register at CFO?
    Answer: No need
    2. If i came from other country, didnt register at CFO, went to AU, and need to go back PH for a vacation, will i be asked for a CFO registration at the PH immigration?
    Answer: No

    Disclaimer: all answers are based from my friends' experiences. Please correct me if someone experienced otherwise.
    I am a bit skeptical about #2... :)

    sis @jengrata, for # 2, you still need to attend the Seminar and have the CFO Sticker attached to your passport. Yan yung sinabi sa amin sa Seminar hehe

    I am a bit skeptical about #2... :)

    sis @jengrata, for # 2, you still need to attend the Seminar and have the CFO Sticker attached to your passport. Yan yung sinabi sa amin sa Seminar hehe
    Sis @peach17 of course yun ang sasabihin nila. Hehehe. Pero in reality, di nmn yun ang nangyayari. Kung mabuti kang citizen, you will abide by the process. However, there are times na you ought to choose whats the easiest and most convenient way. Lalo kung may time constraint.

    Wala pa naman daw nahaharang sa mga friends ko na nasa case #2 . Kapag meron na, i-update ko tong thread na to. Pero nilagay ko nmn sa disclaimer na if ever may makaexperienced ng case #2 at hinanapan ng CFO mangyari lamang na tumayo at magpatunay. Hehehe.

    Questions po regarding sa pagfill-up ng form for PDOS:
    1. Address & Contact Numbers (Country of Destination) - what if wala pa po kami definite na titirhan sa AU, pwede ba i-leave blank?
    2. Visa Number - san po makikita yung visa number sa Grant Letter?
    3. Economic Status: Employed, Self-employed or Unemployed - during the time na magseminar kami, we will be unemployed na. Pero sa choices ng unemployed are housewife, student, retiree, not reporting and occupation. Ano po tamang i-tick?
    3. Petitioner's Data - pwede ba lagyan ng NOT APPLICABLE?

    Salamat po!
