Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

    I watched more episodes of the Border Security last weekend. Meron isa wherein kawawa naman yung mga live reptiles na nilagay nung isang pasahero sa socks tas saka nilagay sa maleta. Paalis sya ng AU bound to Malaysia or Thailand ata. Nahuli ng customs thru xray nun niloload na sa plane mga baggage and malapit na umalis yun plane. Buti nahuli ng customs. Wildlife trafficking. :(

    And mapapanood nyo din na meron talaga nagcoconceal ng narcotics inside their bodies. Akala ko Asians lang gumagawa nun. Meron din mga galing Europe. :(

    And what I also admired about their customs officers, besides being polite, is yung pagiging strict and mabusisi nila and they cannot be bribed. I learned that in their country, bribing a public official has a $1M fine. Sana ganun din dito satin. Walang magpapalagay, kung walang maglalagay and walang maglalagay kung walang magpapalagay. Madidisiplina talaga.

    I hate to say that watching the series makes me compare more Australia with our country, sa area pa lang to ng immigration and customs. What more pa kaya sa ibang aspects. And I'm really sad na malayo talaga sila satin. :(

    Nakaka-paranoid naman yung napanood kong Indian tourist na hi-nold sa immigratio. Kahit pala may tourist visa ka na they would still question you specially if you have a job na hindi kalakihan ang sweldo. I plan to save pa naman and take a package tour to Aussie. Hindi kaya ako i-hold????

    Aussie Dollar ba dapat dala? I'm not sure yet, it is still a plan, depende sa maiipon. Marami kasi ditong travel packages sa Jakarta kapag magho-holiday. Meron silang Sydney-Melbourne-Goldcoast for 7or 5 days but it costs more than USD $2000....sakit sa bulsa!

    Buti, nakalusot yung daing. Yung sandwich na bili ko sa sing airport habang nag-stop over eh hindi pinalusot. Kainis, wla kasing delifrance sa brisbane, i think sa melbourne lang meron. yung goldilocks polvoron hindi rin pinalusot, samantala nakakabili ako nun sa filipino store sa valley, at least yung choconut pwde.

    Pirated installers? Pero pag andyan ka na sa Oz bawal bang magdownload ng pirated installers, mp3 and movies via torrent?

    Hindi naman sa bawal, you are just notified (via email) by your isp na meron silang na receive na complaint from a copyright holder that monitors the ip addresses from torrent seeders which is 'probably' distributing their content inappropriately. These email are just warning messages/tactics to scare people off. Also, marami ding mga isp dito na lax ang monitoring (so d/l all u want). You just have to search some forums to know these isp's. I know 2 (isang big player, isang medium company). Sadly, kahit naka-unlimited ako, yung isp ko is one of those who monitors. But, everything has a loophole, isp's don't want to loose customers, lalo na tough times ngaun.

    dipende sa dami ng dala mo. mas mabuti wag ka na mag dala ng daing bumili ka na lang sa asian store. kung mayrun ka man dala i declare mo kung hindi may fine ka pinaka mababa ng AUD200. Maraming pasaway talaga na asian.

    Episode 12 na ako ng season 1...grabe talaga security nila...importante rin pala na alagaan yung passport...kung may lukot o nadumihan, susuriin nila talaga kasi una nilang hinala sa mga ganyan e forged yung passport.

    Tapos pagkain...ayaw talaga nila na may pinapasok kang pagkain at mga gamit na yari sa kahoy :-s
  • gemini23gemini23 WinPosts: 265Member
    Hi, just a thought, cguro tyempuhan din yung tight security nila, hindi all the time cuz I just talked with my indonesian friend who had been to Sydney for 3 times and according to him he even hand carried a plant in a box and he didn't even declare it, pinalampas lang naman sya. Pero syempre mas mabuti nag-iingat to avoid any problem. x

    Pasaway yang indonesian friend mo sinabi na ngang bawal eh lalo na yung plant kung iba nagkasi baka maapektuhan yun halaman din dito.

    Nung nagcheck-in ako sa immigration last week, naka-lusot yung dala kong goldilocks polvoron. Nilabas at na-inspection pa nga ng customs agent pero ok lang sa kanya. Last year hindi pinayagan, pero siguro swertehan lang kung mahigpit or relax lang yung custom agent na matapat sau. Importante lang is i-declare lahat.
  • LokiJrLokiJr Quezon CityPosts: 2,616Member, Moderator
    @Davidx23, nakakatakot kasi pag mahigpit sila...strikto sila kung organic dinala diba? What if nagdeclare ako na may dala akong saging? Papayagan na ba nila?
